According to Marca, Tottenham Hotspur would be very interested to bring Gareth Bale back to play for them for €60 million this summer.
Gareth Bale has been one of Zinedine Zidane’s biggest headaches during the summer transfer window, but Tottenham Hotspur could take him back.
The London club reluctantly let the Welshman leave back in 2013, they considered him their best player and one of the most talented in English football.
Gareth actually won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year Award twice with the Spurs, once in 2011 and another one right before leaving to Real Madrid.
Furthermore, the Premier League has been craving to get this player back since he left.
Manchester United has been the club that showed the most interest in bringing him back, but Los Blancos always refused to let him leave when he was at the top of his game.
Now that the best years from Gareth are gone and Zidane wants him out, Bale is the one who refuses to leave regardless of the offers he gets from other clubs.
However, the landscape has changed for Bale almost overnight.
This is a player who will forever remain grateful to Tottenham Hotspur, which was the club that made a wager on his skills and turned him into the star that he is today.
If the Welshman was to leave to another club, the Spurs would definitely be at the top of the list for him.

The obstacles that prevent Bale from leaving.
According to the report from Marca that was published earlier on Tuesday, the Welshman is keen on leaving but only for a similar wage than the one he already has.
Tottenham Hotspur allegedly offered between €50 and €60 million for his transfer but they can only pay him half of what he currently makes.
After tax, Gareth gets an elevated €17 million per season from Real Madrid. The other problem that gets in the way of Gareth Bale possibly leaving Real Madrid is the fact that he still has three remaining years in his current contract.
In order to leave the club if Tottenham paid that money, Real Madrid would still have to pay him €25 million as a severance package.
Time is running out for Gareth Bale and Real Madrid, as the Premier League’s transfer deadline ends on August 8.
There have been no other offers from any other club for Gareth Bale, who lost a lot of prestige over the last few years due to the many injuries he suffers throughout a full season.
In many spheres within the football business, some clubs already know him as a “glass player” for being too fragile.
He also instills the fear of never having the certainty that he can perform without getting injured for an extended period of time.

Real Madrid may not accept Tottenham’s offer.
Another obstacle that may prevent Gareth Bale from leaving to play at Tottenham Hotspur is Real Madrid, they don’t consider that offer as an ideal one.
In fact, Los Blancos would only accept between €70 and €80 million for his transfer.
Even though Zidane doesn’t stand him anymore, the French manager knows that he is still a very valuable player and they would rather keep him than sell him for less money than he is worth.
We can’t forget that despite his many injuries and bad reputation, Gareth Bale is still a player who delivered two Champions League titles with his goals scored during finals.
This record alone is more than enough for any player to have enormous prestige throughout Europe.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino should force Daniel Levy to make a bigger effort for Gareth, having a player like him on the squad would be a great boost for the North London club.
Bale wouldn’t mind playing for a club that recently reached the Champions League final, a stage of the competition to which the player feel very familiarized.
