Tottenham Hotspur of England’s Nigerian-born midfielder, Bamidele ‘Dele’ Ali has been cited in a developing plan by Real Madrid to send Wales star, Gareth Bale back to the English Premier League side from which they bought him four years ago, megasportsarena.com reports.
Bale has since fallen out of favour under Los Blancos’ current coach, Zinedine Zidane, who has b=never hidden his distaste for the former Spurs sensation, and the French legend’s latest effort to jettison the once-fearsome winger-cum-attacker sees Ali named among his many options.
Information on offer from Queensland indicates that Bale is nearing a return to Tottenham, with Spurs’ chairman, Daniel Levy confident of sealing a deal with Madrid and Alli could move the other way.
That would ultimately also mean Spurs edging aside Manchester United in the hunt for Bale’s signature before this month runs its full course, as the ondon-based club stepped up their bargaining power on on Tuesday night to see former hero Gareth Bale make a sensational return to the club.
On a dramatic day of high-level discussions led by Levy, Spurs reportedly moved into a position where they have a realistic opportunity of snatching the Real Madrid star from under the noses of rivals Manchester United.
The report by Sportsmail sensationally added that Madrid will agree to pay in-excess of 50 per cent of the Wales international’s astronomical wages of up to £500,000-per-week in order to facilitate the deal.
The online medium of Daily Mail stated further: “Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett gave an extra boost to fans hoping for a reunion, as he told BBC Wales that ‘Gareth still loves Spurs… It’s where he wants to be.’ Tottenham are believed to have explored a loan or a permanent deal, which could include a swap for one of the club’s premium first-team players, for Bale.
“Levy, who was also trying to close a deal for Real’s highly-rated left-back Sergio Reguilon, was at the forefront of Tottenham’s negotiations on Tuesday. Sources even claimed that Spurs are even prepared to use Dele Alli as a makeweight in the deal for Bale, such was their determination to clinch a return for the 31-year-old.”
