Gareth Bale is waiting for the green light from Real Madrid to join Tottenham
, Jakarta - Gareth Bale is reportedly waiting for the green light from Real Madrid to join his old club, Tottenham Hotspur. Jose Mourinho's club almost agreed to a loan agreement for Bale.
Previously Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett, said that his client wanted to return to his old club Spurs. "Gareth still loves the Spurs. We are talking. It is at the club that he wants to be," said Barnett.
Tottenham have reportedly agreed to pay around £ 20 million in salaries and loan fees for the former star.
Prior to joining Real Madrid for a world record £ 86 million in 2013, Bale played for the North London club for six years. He won two PFA Player of Year awards while defending Tottenham.
According to sources, as quoted by Sky Sports , negotiations regarding Bale's move from Madrid to Tottenham are progressing slowly. However, there is hope that all parties agree and the transfer will be completed.
The source also confirmed that Bale will soon become a Spurs player. "Of course," he said when confirmed.
Even though he previously played twice with the Wales national team, the 31-year-old was not completely fit. It is estimated that it will take him a month to return to his best. Therefore, it is likely that he will not be able to immediately play when he officially joins Tottenham Hotspur .
Real Madrid have reportedly agreed to let him go on a blackout so he can earn money to pay him £ 500,000 a week in wages.
Bale is not needed at Real Madrid. Coach Zinedine Zidane sidelined him. In addition, the Welshman also has a bad relationship with the Spanish media and fans of Los Blancos. Therefore, he intends to start a new start again at Spurs.
Previously, Manchester United were also reportedly interested in Gareth Bale as a backup option if they failed to get Jadon Sancho. However they did not bid Real Madrid, although they have tried to sign him on several occasions since he was at Southampton 13 years ago.
