Dean Jones has claimed on The Done Deal Show that Daniel Levy wants to sign Gareth Bale for Tottenham Hotspur.

Bale is not going to be short of potential suitors this summer after seeing his contract at Real Madrid come to an end and helping Wales qualify for the World Cup, meaning the winger is in need of a move at least until the winter when Wales jet off to Qatar.

One of the early leading candidates appears to be Tottenham, which would be Bale’s third stint in north London, although the last one saw him start just 10 league games and not be able to play in front of a full stadium during the 2020/21 season.

Jones believes that Levy is very much eager to bring Bale back to Tottenham once again this summer.

Would you like to see Spurs sign Bale?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

He said: “Tottenham’s the one, for me, that makes absolute sense at this point in time. Not only is he free, but if you’re talking about a player that is versatile, adaptable, can play when Kane’s not fit, can play around Harry Kane, can have big impacts in big moments, it’s Gareth Bale.

“He’s got the feel-good factor, too – when he went back to Tottenham last time around, the supporters weren’t there, I think they might have got one game out of him right at the end of the season; a few thousand people managed to get in the stadium on the back of lockdown and see Gareth Bale in a Tottenham shirt again.

TIF Thoughts on Bale to Spurs…

It would be a very fitting homecoming if Bale could return to Spurs and play Champions League football while getting fit and into good form for his beloved Wales this winter – and as Jones said, he would be able to play in and around Harry Kane or even in the striker’s absence.

With Bale now 32 years old, he wouldn’t very likely be a starter under Antonio Conte, but he would be a very good option to have on the bench if Spurs were struggling to break a team down in the last 10-15 minutes of games, so if the wages were right for Spurs, it could well be a deal that works for everyone.

    The Tottenham Shirt is the only one that looks right on Gareth Bale!

  • Tony Borg says:

    What a waste of money he would be, just the wages alone. His legs have gone, does nothing off of the ball, not a team player.

  • Big Mal says:

    I can’t imagine him getting a minute of game time in the league. Would be a pointless signing and never going to happen
