£350,000-a-week star ‘closer to agreeing’ transfer to Tottenham this summer

Tottenham Hotspur have been given brand new hope in the chase of former star Gareth Bale who is ‘closer to agreeing’ a move back to the club, based on a report by Don Balon in Spain.

Bale’s lack of regular action at the Santiago Bernabeu for the past two to three campaigns has witnessed rumours claim that he is eying a return to England.

And even though Tottenham’s chase of the Welshman appeared to have gone dead, Don Balon’s report is claiming that the 28-year-old is pushing for a move to Spurs instead of Manchester United.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is said to be looking to sell Bale, who is ‘closer to agreeing’ a move to Tottenham as he is willing to take a pay cut to join his old club.

The prolific forward, an earner of £350,000-a-week wages, stated after last month’s Champions League final that he would be sitting down with his agent to make a decision over his future at Madrid very soon.
