Bale could be heading back to Spurs

GARETH BALE looks set to pack his bags after the Champions League Final against Liverpool – win or lose.

And, if reports in Spain are to be believed, the Real Madrid superstar is heading back to old club Tottenham with chairman Daniel Levy working on a £43.7million deal.

It will be a major boost for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino if Levy can successfully negotiate a transfer with the hard-line Madrid men.

White Hart Lane legend Gary Lineker would applaud it, too, with the former Spurs hotshot fully convinced that Bale would return to the Premier League a better, more skilful player.

Lineker, who was a major hit in his three years at Barcelona, said: “It looks like he is set to leave Real Madrid but he has done terrifically well there and won pretty much everything.

“The rumours are that Madrid are looking to sell him and it will be interesting to see who jumps in for him because he has a massive amount of talent – if you can get him on the pitch.

“Unquestionably, going abroad has improved him. He was brilliant in his last couple of seasons at Tottenham and he is a wonderful footballer. It’s always good to get different experiences of different styles which he’ll have got by playing in La Liga.

He will have learned so much, there’s no question about that. And he will be a better player for it.

He’s certainly played well the last two or three games and scored a couple of great goals. Gareth’s only real problems are his lack of consistency in terms of playing time and the injuries he’s picked up in the last couple of years.”

Bale is ready to return to the Premier League after five highly successful years in La Liga and hopes to mark his last appearance for Madrid with a fourth Champions League medal.

Real want £69.9m but given their determination to offload Bale, the deal could go through on Tottenham’s reduced fee.

The only major stumbling block would be his sky-high wages of £350,000 a week AFTER tax.
