Mauricio Pochettino Admits Real Madrid Star Gareth Bale Could Return To Tottenham
Gareth Bale will reportedly be allowed to part ways with Real Madrid next summer.
The club bosses are not happy with Bale’s ever-growing injury concerns and according to Spanish reports, they have now made up their mind and are ready to put the former Spurs man for sale.
The Welshman has endured an injury-hit 20017/18 campaign and has missed 14 of Real Madrid’s games in all competitions so far.
Pochettino said: “Of course he’s a fantastic player. He keeps contact with all the people here that worked here in the past.”
Bale has been heavily linked with a move back to the Premier League throughout his series of injury.
Bale was heavily linked with a move away from Real Madrid during the summer transfer window – with Manchester United and Chelsea desperate to secure his services.
According to Spanish website Don Balon, Manchester United are still interested in snapping him despite missing out on the former Spurs star in August.
Recent reports have also linked Bale with a sensational return to Tottenham.
Pochettino has revolutionised football at Spurs and players like Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen have emerged as one of the brightest talents in Europe.
Spurs have shown incredible form in the Premier League over the course of the last few seasons and now they fighting toe-to-toe with Europe’s elite clubs in the Champions League.
Pochettino’s Spurs showed their big game ability as they outplayed Spanish giants Real Madrid 3-1 in the Champions League last month.
According to Diario Gol, both Man Utd and Spurs are only ready to splurge £53m (€60m) on the Real Madrid foraward.
This means that Real Madrid would have to take a £32m hit on Bale, who had joined the Los Blancos for a whooping £85m in 2013.
The 28-year-old will miss Real Madrid’s league clash against Sevilla as he continues his recovery from a calf muscle injury.
