Tottenham leading Man United in the race to sign La Liga superstar



Tottenham leading Manchester United in the race for Gareth Bale

According to a report from ESPN, Tottenham Hotspur have taken the lead over Premier League rivals Manchester United in the race to sign former star Gareth Bale from Real Madrid this summer.

Having burst onto the scenes as a gifted young footballer at Tottenham, Bale grew into one of the most coveted stars in Europe over the years. And naturally, Real Madrid came calling in 2013, with the Welshman sealing a £85.3m transfer to the Spanish capital club.

While Bale has seen tremendous success in Spain, winning a bucket load of titles and trophies, he has never been able to get himself in the good books of the fans for one reason or the another. In addition, manager Zinedine Zidane also doesn’t favour the Welshman, as was indicated by how he used the winger last season.

Having grown frustrated with his time in Spain, Bale recently revealed in an interview that he was keen on leaving and would be open to a return to the Premier League. And this has piqued the interest of both Tottenham Hotspur and rivals Manchester United.

The Red Devils are reportedly eyeing him as a possible alternative for primary transfer target Jadon Sancho. And they are prepared to wait on the Englishman before launching a move for Bale. This has given Spurs an opportunity to seal the deal and steps have been taken towards that. (h/t ESPN)

As per the report, Tottenham have already started negotiations with both Bale and Real Madrid over the possibility of working out a return to his roots, putting them ahead of United in the chase.

Madrid are willing to offload Bale for as little as £18m. But, they are also open to the possibility of a subsidised loan move so that they can share his £600,000-a-week salary. With negotiations already underway, let’s hope we can strike an agreement and bring Bale back home.
