Leading Spurs journalist Alasdair Gold reports that Spurs are ‘having a go’ at bringing back Bale, who left the club for Madrid in 2013 for a then world record fee.
I normally roll my eyes when there's Gareth Bale questions most windows, every year. Finally, this is a window when I don't think I can. From what I understand Spurs are genuinely having a go for a loan and if they can get Real Madrid to help out a lot, I think it might happen.

Bale, 31, is no longer wanted at Madrid to the extent they are willing to sanction a loan deal.
The Welshman’s heavy salary makes any deal complicated and Spurs would need Madrid to subsidise Bale’s wages.
Spurs are desperate to add more firepower to their squad after drawing a blank against Everton.
Jose Mourinho’s side lost 1-0 at home to the Toffees in the first weekend of Premier League matches.
Mou likes Dost
Much like Bale, Spurs would favour a loan deal for Dost, who Eintracht value at €5.5m.
The Dutch international has been a prolific marksman over the years, racking up 228 career goals.
Dost, 31, has the profile Mourinho wants in a forward: tall (6’4″), experienced and physical.
Other names linked with Spurs include Troy Deeney, Christian Benteke, Carlos Vinicius and Alexander Sorloth.
