Gareth Bale to fly to England on Friday to rejoin Spurs

Gareth Bale will fly to England on Friday to complete his stunning return to Tottenham, the BBC reports.

Spurs have almost clinched the loan signing of their former icon, with talks at an advanced stage.

And if there are no hitches, the 31-year-old should arrive in London tomorrow.

There are conflicting stories on how much of Bale’s £600,000-per-week wages Spurs will cover, with some reporting half and others the full amount.

Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett said on Wednesday: “Gareth is closer to leaving Madrid than at any time in the last seven years. We are still negotiating. We shall see how it goes.”

Bale is one of two players en route to Spurs from Real Madrid, with Sergio Reguilon joining on a permanent deal.

Spurs will pay €30m for the 23-year-old plus a further €5m in bonuses. Madrid will have the option for two years to re-sign the left-back for €40m.

But it is Bale’s return that is making the headlines, with the Wales forward already saying his goodbyes to Madrid teammates.

Jose Mourinho reportedly had a big influence on this deal, pushing Spurs chief Daniel Levy to re-sign Bale.

Bale left the North London club in 2013 for what was then a world-record transfer fee of €100m (£86m).

In recent years, Bale has fallen out of favour under Zinedine Zidane but his spell with Los Blancos will be best remembered for his two goals in the 2008 Champions League final win over Liverpool.
