Bale enjoyed much of his success on the right wing and, despite those infamous chants from White Hart Lane reminding Harry Redknapp that he is ‘playing on the left’, this is where the 31-year-old striker s ‘would expect to be deployed on his return to the Premier League.

For Mourinho at Tottenham, the sense of urgency is more acute. Lucas Moura remains a popular figure given his heroics in the Champions League semi-finals in Amsterdam, but there are now question marks over his exit on the right flank and the acquisition of Bale would represent an upgrade significant.

Bale would be a more robust presence than the alternatives and if his mobility deteriorates in the years to come, it’s tempting to think that he could make the kind of transition to that center-forward role that is seamlessly done by the Bale. former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

“There has been a big change in mood when it comes to Bale and Real Madrid. Last summer he came very close to moving to China which was stranded at the last minute, but Real Madrid have made it clear they want him out.

Bale joining Tottenham from Real Madrid would be suitable for all parties, former Spain club president Ramon Calderon says

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon on Sky Sports News:

“He came here as Tottenham’s MVP but now it’s a question of seeing if he can reclaim his time as a good player as it’s clear Zinedine Zidane isn’t counting on him. It’s time to end this and for me. this is the best time to do it.
