Gareth Bale urged to return to Tottenham by Danny Murphy

As reported by the Express, former Tottenham star Danny Murphy has implored ex-teammate Gareth Bale to leave Real Madrid and return to North London this summer.

The 31-year-old burst onto the scenes at Tottenham having joined the club from Southampton in 2007. He enjoyed a rapid rise to stardom with the Lilywhites, racking up 56 goals and 58 assists in 203 appearances.

Gareth Bale rose to stardom at Tottenham

Bale, on the back of his scintillating form, earned a move to Real Madrid in 2013. The Wales international has seen a lot of success during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, winning four Champions League trophies and two La Liga titles.

However, he has never been able to win over the support of the Madrid fans, while he has been frozen out by current manager Zinedine Zidane. His situation has generated a lot speculation in the media. Bale’s agent, however, has insisted that the attacker will see out of his contract with the club that runs till 2022.

However, Bale’s ex-Tottenham teammate, Murphy, has urged Bale to end his time in Spain and return to Spurs, where he is loved by the fans. (h/t Express)

“There has to be a way out of Real Madrid and I think the one place for Gareth is Tottenham. He’s loved there already; he’s got the fans on board and they could do with him, he’d be a great boost to the team.”

The 31-year-old Bale featured just 20 times across all competitions for Real Madrid in 2019/20, producing a return of three goals and two assists. He still has plenty left to offer at the highest level and him returning home to Tottenham would certainly help us go a notch higher.

Wages and transfer fees, though, might prove to be a stumbling block, especially in the current state of the transfer market.
