Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has rejoined Tottenham Hotspur on a season-long loan after remaining seven years at the Santiago Bernabeu, according to TalkSPORT.
The 31-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to England, with the speculations intensifying after his agent said he wants a return to his previous club.
And now as per the Daily Mail, he has been granted his wish as Tottenham have signed him on a loan deal. The Lilywhites have accepted a £13 million pay packet for the Welshman, which will partly be funded by the Spanish giants.
It looks unclear when the Premier League side will announce their new signing, however, it is expected to happen after they sort out a few small contractual issues.
Spurs began their new campaign in a limp manner as they suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat against Everton in the opening match and negotiations reportedly stepped up after talks between Daniel Levy and Jose Mourinho.
The Mail report further says that Bale’s deal will be deemed as a separate transaction as the Lilywhites have also been linked with a move for Sergio Reguilon amid Manchester United interest.
The talented left-back is set to undergo a medical and will pen a five-year deal with the London side in a deal worth £27million.
The Portuguese manager distanced himself from rumours that associated the club with Gareth, although the 57-year-old conceded that he is a big fan of the winger.
“I tried to sign him for Real Madrid which was not possible to do during my time there,” He said in his press conference.
“But the president followed my instinct and my knowledge and the season I left he brought Gareth to the club.
“There is no secret on that. Even Gareth knows that. But I’m not going to speak about him anymore because he is a Real Madrid player.”
