Bale left Tottenham in 2013 for a then-world record £85 million to join Real Madrid; however, it looks like he’ll be coming back. Tottenham is reportedly expected to pay at least half of Bale’s £500,000-a-week wages.
“It’s nice to be back, where I made my name, Bale said on Friday,” via the Daily Mail. I always thought about returning. I’m hungry, I’m motivated I can’t wait to get strated. I want to get some match fitness and hopefully help the team win trophies. I want to get us to the next level and that’s win trophies. To do it at Tottenham now would be a dream come true,” Bale said.
The winger played phenomenally during his time with Real Madrid, scoring more than 100 goals and winning four Champions League titles with the team. Additionally, the 31-year-old winger made 68 assists in just 251 games. However, after getting frustrated by a lack of playing time this past season, Bale decided it was best for him to leave the club.
Now with the Spurs, Bale will be joining an electric offense which includes Harry Kane, Lucas Moura, Heun-Min Son, and Delle Ali. Furthermore, he’ll also be joining one of the game’s most respected managers in Jose Mourinho. This past season, the Spurs finished sixth in the Premier League; however, with Bale’s arrival, they could be one of the top teams this season.
