Tottenham Hotspur Offered Former Player On A £10m Loan Deal: Should Pochettino Bring Him Back?

According to a recent report by the Sun, Real Madrid are willing to let Gareth Bale make a sensational return back to Tottenham Hotspur on a £10m loan deal during the summer transfer window. The same source has also mentioned that Spurs are discussing the possibility of a loan transfer, but they have ruled out a permanent move for the Welsh international.

Bale’s Struggles At The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium This Season

Bale had to endure a difficult campaign at the Spanish capital this season as he often found himself on the Galacticos bench under former manager, Santiago Solari. Even Zinedine Zidane’s return as the club’s manager hasn’t helped his cause. The Welsh winger looks like a shadow of his former self and is struggling to find confidence on the pitch.

The 29-year-old has featured in 42 matches for Los Blancos this term, finding the back of the net on 14 occasions while creating six assists in multiple competitions. He is also vastly experienced at the international level, having represented his nation in 75 matches while scoring 31 goals across various tournaments.

The Welsh talent is versatile enough to play on either flank or as a centre-forward up top. Hence, Bale could be an ideal option for Spurs to consider especially on a short-term loan deal in this off-season.

What Does The Welsh Wing Wizard Offer On The Pitch?

Bale still has blistering pace under his belt and is a very penetrative dribbler with the ball in the opposition half. On his day, the Welsh international can be a match-winner as evidenced by his quick-fire brace in last season’s UEFA Champions League final versus Liverpool when he came off the bench to completely change the fate of the contest. 

However, the fact that the Madrid sensation has struggled to cope with life in Spain suggests that he could be on the decline. At 29, Bale should still have a few years left in his locker to play at a high level, but it is also worth noting that recent injuries have hampered his growth as a wide player as he is slowing down with each campaign.

Should Spurs Bring Him Back To North London?

Pochettino would be better of opting for someone more reliable as signing Bale on loan for a £10m fee could be a gamble which might not work out for them next season.
