In a recent report, The Guardian has stated that Tottenham Hotspur are keeping an eye on former Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale. The Ex-Real Madrid star has become a free agent after an emotional exit from Santiago Bernabeu. With Wales having qualified for the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, Bale remains keen on finding a new club to ensure he remains fit for the biggest festival in the football world.
Bale’s Impressive Career For Real Madrid
The Welshman has registered a total of 106 goals and 67 assists in 258 matches across all fronts throughout his career for Los Blancos. His cabinet boasts several silverware over a hugely successful career that brought him five Champions League winner’s medals, three La Liga titles and four FIFA Club World Cup trophies.
The 32-year-old, despite being plagued by injuries, managed to produce some influential displays in the 2020/21 season on loan at Tottenham Hotspur. He made the most out of his appearances scoring 11 goals and producing two assists over 20 matches in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Should Tottenham Hotspur Boss Antonio Conte Bring Him Back?
The Wales international failed to be a regular under Carlo Ancelotti and was loaned to the Lilywhites in the 2020/21 season. However, after producing impressive numbers during his loan spell at Tottenham, he made it evident that he can still add depth and quality to his squad. The Welshman can still be a goal threat in the attacking third, causing trouble for the opposition defenders with his pace and ball skills.
At 32, Bale’s career is far from over and he has managed to give out a loud message after helping Wales qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. He could strengthen Conte’s attack with his creativity and add more balance to the frontline. His addition would definitely bring more goals for Spurs. Moreover, his calibre and experience could help Tottenham contend in the European competitions.
Antonio Conte could make a bid and acquire his services for a decent sum, and should that happen this summer, we could see a happy homecoming. The fans would be delighted to have him play in the Tottenham Hotspur stadium during the last years of his glorious career.
