Tottenham have made their final decision in the bid to somehow lure Gareth Bale back to his old club this summer.
The Wales international left London almost five years ago in a deal which saw Spurs receive £85million in return for selling him.
Bale’s career at the Santiago Bernabeu has hit a snag in the past couple of years due to injury woes which have resulted in rumours that he might be leaving the club soon.
But based on a report by BBC, the 28-year-old is not likely to return to Tottenham this summer due to financial concerns over his high wages and transfer fee.
Bale is claimed to be earning around £400,000-a-week in Spain, an astronomical sum which Spurs will not be able to afford, especially with the cost of the new stadium to be paid for.
The Welshman’s transfer fee, which some reports stated would be around £44million, has also effectively been increased after his heroics on Saturday.
Bale came off the bench to score two vital goals which decided the Champions League final in favour of Real Madrid.
