Gareth Bale is edging closer to a return to Tottenham Hotspur, according to his agent Jonathan Barnett.
Bale is unwanted by Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane and could be in-line for a return to Premier League club Spurs on a loan deal.
“We are talking,” Barnett told BBC Radio Wales about Bale’s proposed return to the London club. “He still loves Spurs. It’s where he wants to be.”
The Welshman still has two years left to run on his deal with Madrid and previous reports suggested a move away from the club was difficult owing to his big-money contract and Madrid’s reluctance to let the player leave the club on a free transfer.
But now a move to Spurs looks a possibility with Jose Mourinho’s men reported to be ready to pay his full wages for the current season in order to get their man.
