If Spurs can re-sign their former player it could give them the x-factor they need when it comes to winning the biggest trophies.
A man for the big occasion
Last season, Spurs were able to make it to the Champion’s League final but drew a blank and lost lose 2-0 to Liverpool.
Gareth Bale has excelled on the same stage – The Welshman scored an unbelievable overhead kick in the 2018 Champions League final against the same opposition in Liverpool – a goal that will surely go down as one of the greatest in Champions League final history.
The Welshman knocked the ball past Marc Bartra and despite having to run off the pitch was able to beat the Spanish defender to the ball and score to win the game 2-1.
Proven in the Premier League
In his last season at Spurs, Bale scored 21 goals in 33 Premier League games and if he could recreate that goal-tally whilst playing in a front three with Harry Kane and Heung Min Son, who were Tottenham’s two highest scorers last season, it would make Spurs a devastating offensive team.
Bale needs to find a home
The Welshman, despite his Champions League heroics, has been a much-maligned figure at Real Madrid of late, and even suggested he would need to be paid by Real Madrid if they want him to leave, Radioestadio claims he said this to his teammates in the dressing room:
“I’ve got three years left on my contract. If they want me to go, they’ll need to pay me €17m per season. If not, I’ll stay here. And if I have to play golf, I will.”
The fact that reports suggest Zidane doesn’t want to integrate Bale into his starting XI makes the need for him to move clubs important, if he was to go to Spurs he’d likely be a first-team regular and would be treated like the world-class talent he is by the Spurs fans who he made his name for.
