Gareth Bale, who returned to Tottenham Hotspur on a loan deal during the summer transfer window after spending eight years at Real Madrid, is finally starting to show his new team-mates his undeniable quality in recent months. This is likely to persuade the North London club to sign him on a permanent deal from the Spanish side according to reports emerging from England. Gareth Bale Turns Back Time at Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly considering a permanent move for Gareth Bale after the Real Madrid star’s upturn in form for the club in recent times, claims the Express. The Welsh winger initially joined on a year-long loan but could extend his stay in the Premier League as the London club are starting to count on the winger.

Gareth Bale scored twice in Spurs’ 4-0 win over Burnley to take his tally to four goals in four games - in a spectacular return to form after a patchy first four months of his loan from the Spanish side. After this sudden rise, Spurs who initially were not keen on keeping the Wales international at the club for more than a year have started to soften their stance.

Gareth Bale will have a year left on his contract at Real Madrid at the end of the current season but Los Blancos are want to secure the Welshman’s transfer away from the club after him falling out with manager Zinedine Zidane towards the final period of the last campaign.

The Wales superstar earns around £600,000-a-week in wages at Real Madrid, a figure the Spanish side desperately wants to get off their books. Los Blancos are trying to gather funds for the signing of Kylian Mbappe and letting go of Gareth Bale will bolster their chances.
