After Seven years with Real Madrid, former Tottenham favourite has returned back among his loved ones.

Like every transfer window the rumors linking Bale back to Tottenham started, Tottenham faithfuls who were fed up with the same type of rumors everytime thought it as just the headlines and ignored it.

But the rumors took the form of wildfire and kept on spreading, the trusted sources were reporting and finally the dream of every Tottenham faithfuls changed to reality when Fabrizio Romano confirmed it.

After joining Madrid on world record fee Bale won everything, changing the games on his own justifying the tag of the most expensive player. It went well for few years but the injuries and the behaviour from the fans changed it all.

When the Welsh team celebrated reaching Euro 2020, Bale was handed a flag that read “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order.”

At the time Bale said: “It’s a good bit of fun.”

But it resulted in a backlash in Spain, with Real fans booing and whistling Bale as he played for the club.

Bale was getting frustrated in Real Madrid as he was spending most of the time playing golf rather than football, Zidane was not going to give him the another chance and Real were looking to offload him. Bale was being linked with move from Madrid to different clubs like Manchester United.

Tottenham fans always wanted him back, club was also keen to bring their former hitman back and on top of that Jose Mourinho was longtime admirer of Gareth Bale.

When Tottenham were in discussion with Real Madrid for the transfer of Madrid`s young left back Sergio Reguilon they grabbed the opportunity of the Bale`s situation and paved the way back for his return.

Former Tottenham winger Darren Anderton says Bale is “exactly what Spurs need”.

“After watching the game on Sunday, oh boy do Spurs need it – someone who can go and win a game with a bit of magic, creativity and flair,” said Anderton.

“It has to be great for all parties. To come back to somewhere you are loved really does make sense.

“He carried the Wales team, he carried the Tottenham team when he was here, winning games on his own. He is exactly what Spurs need.

“For me it is a no-brainer to come and play for us and prove what he is all about.”

The dream of every Tottenham fans who always wanted to see Bale back has been fulfilled, club has been able to bring back their former hitman, Jose has got his man and Bale is back where his heart lies.

According to under the terms of the Bale deal, Tottenham will be paying roughly 40 per cent of the player’s wages with Real picking up the remaining 60 per cent.

Tottenham will also have an option to make Bale’s season-long stay in north London a longer one with a second season if the move proves to be the success for all parties that they hope it will.

That second season would take Bale to 2022 and the end of his Real Madrid contract, which is reportedly worth £600,000-a-week before tax.

The transfer of Gareth Bale from Madrid to Tottenham has got all the headlines but along with Gareth Bale Tottenham have completed the signing of another exciting young talent from the Spanish capital.

Sergio Reguilon who impressed on loan at Sevilla last season from Real Madrid was linked with the move from his home club.

The big clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea were in talks to secure his signature but at last Spurs won the race to complete the move for the highly rated youngster.

The Spanish left back joins for a fee of £27.6m and signs a contract until 2025.

Key factor for the move: Real Madrid`s Clause

As other club hesitated to match the clause insisted by Real Madrid, Tottenham grabbed the opportunity and sealed the deal.

We have agreed to the Real Madrid`s buy back clause into the deal which is reportedly active for 2 years and estimated to be around €45m. We have also agreed Pre-emption clause (if any club make an offer for him in coming years Tottenham must inform Real Madrid about the deal).

Words from Former Manager:
Reguilon has grown at a barbaric rate. He’s a much more complete player than when he first joined.” – Julen Lopetegui, Sevilla manager, August 2020

Once Tottenham had best full backs combination in the whole world in form of Danny Rose and Kyle Walker, may be it`s time to create another one in form of Matt Doherty and Sergio Reguilon. COYS
