All things being equal, Real Madrid‘s Gareth Bale will fly to London on Friday and head straight to Tottenham Hotspur to finalize his loan move to the club.

Recall that his agent, Jonathan Barnett, has confirmed that talks among the representatives of Tottenham, Real Madrid, and the player have been progressing positively. He also admitted that the 31-year-old Real Madrid embattled forward has chosen to return to Tottenham Hotspur rather than go to Manchester United which has shown interest in the Wales international.

Bale who has been in football wilderness at Real Madrid under the manager of the club, Zinedine Zidane, has been looking for an escape route from the club but would not settle for just anything. He was so close to leaving the club for a Chinese club prior to the 2019-2020 season but Real Madrid stopped the deal.

His agent has hinted that Gareth Bale has never been so close to leaving Real Madrid as he is this summer which could mean that Tottenham could announce Bale in days time.

Jose Mourinho, the manager of Tottenham is already looking forward to having a player as big as Bale rejoin Tottenham after 7 years of leaving the club. The Portuguese tactician has told the press that he has always wanted to work with Gareth Bale even while he was managing Real Madrid. Unfortunately for the coach, Madrid signed Bale after Mourinho has left Madrid.

“I tried to sign him for Real Madrid, which was not possible to do during my time there. But the president followed my instinct and my knowledge and the season I left he brought Gareth to the club. It’s not a secret, even Gareth knows that”, Mourinho said.

On September 1, 2013, Gareth Bale left Tottenham Hotspur for Real Madrid after he has established himself as a world-class player. Real Madrid paid Tottenham a whopping 101 million euros for Bale which was then a world transfer record.

Before he left the Premier League club, Bale scored 56 goals and provided 58 assists in 203 matches but failed to win any major title throughout his stay at the London club. But when he joined Madrid, the story changed for him, he scored 105 goals and provided 68 assists in 251 games for Madrid. His performance assisted the club to win two La Liga titles, four UEFA Champions League, and seven other major titles.

Gareth Bale is currently training alone in Spain as he awaits the outcome of the lingering negotiation over his loan move to Tottenham.

Bale’s potential club, Tottenham, will commence their quest to qualify for the group stage of the 2020-2021 Europa League today. They will need to win Lokomotiv Plovdiv to fancy their chance of playing in the group stage of the competition.
