Tottenham are reportedly prepared to pay just over £25million to sign Gareth Bale in the January transfer window. Bale has long been linked with a return to Tottenham ever since leaving to join Real Madrid in 2013.
Despite helping Real to win four Champions League titles, Bale has struggled to win over the fans at the Bernabeu.
He has become a target for frustrated Real supporters when things are not going well with his injuries a main source of irritation.
Speculation over his future appeared to come to a head last summer with Zinedine Zidane making it clear he wanted the winger sold.
It looked as though Bale would be heading to the Chinese Super League in a mega-money transfer, but surprisingly Florentino Perez blocked the move.

Tottenham though have apparently reignited their interested in signing the Wales international with Daniel Levy reportedly meeting with the Real president about a potential transfer.
And Spanish football expert Juanfe Sanz claims Spurs have already indicated their offer to the La Liga giants.
“Tottenham is willing to reach 30 million [Euros] for Bale,” he said on El Chiringuito TV.
The problem for Tottenham though could well be Bale’s high wages, with the 30-year-old earning a reported £350,000-a-week at Real.

Kane is currently the club’s highest earner on £200,000-a-week while only five other players earn over £100,000-a-week.
Bale would seemingly be a top choice for Jose Mourinho though as he has previously indicated his interest in signing the former Tottenham star.
While still manager of Manchester United, Mourinho made it clear he wanted to sign the attacker but he conceded defeat over a potential move.
Tottenham however are in desperate need for more options up front with Kane out of action until April at the earliest.

But Mourinho has said the club won’t be forced into making any panic buys in the January window.
“To do something, you have to do something that is good for our future too, not just good for tomorrow,” he said.
“Something that is good for the future too and of course the club is very aware of it and the club is very committed of course but we want to do something that is right by every point of view.
“So I don’t speak about other players from other clubs, about things that can happen or not happen because that’s not me and that’s not the way Tottenham operate too.
“But we are trying to see if any good opportunities arise.”
