Opinion: Sky Sports update suggests Bale will complete Tottenham deal soon

Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on a season-long loan deal to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid, according to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, with the fact the player wants to ‘come home’ suggesting the star is Spurs-bound.

Lilywhites fans have been holding their breath over recent days as news has emerged over negotiations between the clubs and the potential for the former Spurs man to return to North London.

The latest report suggests that a contract is being drawn up and both parties are confident a deal can be agreed, while Bale is keen to sign for Tottenham soon.


Looking at it realistically, the best part of Solhekol’s update is when he states that the former Spurs man wants to ‘come home’.

Tottenham are not going to be able to afford to pay anywhere near the salary that Bale currently earns in Madrid and as such there will need to be some clever negotiation on the part of Daniel Levy.

However, given the fact that the Wales international has an affinity with the club and an emotional attachment to Spurs, here’s hoping that he places playing regular football for a team he likes as his priority over earning astronomical wages.

Tottenham fans will be keen to see updates in the next 24 hours, with the dream scenario of a Spurs-mad Bale returning a mouth-watering proposition.
