Gareth Bale, one of the most iconic veterans in the football world today, recently confirmed his return to Tottenham for an entire season. Additionally, it was reported that Tottenham would also be granted the opportunity to extend Bale’s contract for another year at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old winger had recently experienced a knee injury whilst playing for Wales as part of the international circuit. It was during this time that the news of his transfer began to circulate, despite having two years left on his £600,000 per week contract with Real Madrid. The rumours soon began to take shape as Spurs announced how Bale will be returning till the end of this season, with the club covering £250,000 per week as part of the deal.
While speaking on the official Tottenham website, Bale expressed his excitement on returning to his boyhood club. “I always thought when I did leave that one day I would love to come back, and the opportunity has now arisen.”
Bale originally joined Real Madrid in 2013 which was followed by a series of accomplishments with the team by having to win four Champions League trophies, along two La Liga titles. His transition to Spurs could mean a massive change of momentum for the team altogether, especially after having to lose early on in their Premier League opening match against Everton. Bale will be equipped with the number 9 jersey and is all set to star along side England captain, Harry Kane and South Korea’s Son Heung-min. However, because of his injury, he will not be able to join the team until later next month.
Regardless of the circumstances, we would like to wish the best of luck to the veteran Welshman and hope to see him back on the field soon!
