Football transfer rumours: Gareth Bale back to Spurs for £54m?

Today’s fluff is ready for anything

It’s Gareth Bale’s birthday and among the popping corks and sounds of party horns being blown there is also talk of happy returns, chiefly a move back to Tottenham Hotspur, the club that helped transform Bale from a skinny, injury-prone sickly left-back into a goal-guzzling, thunderous inside-forward. With Zinedine Zidane having placed Bale on a dusty shelf in a Real Madrid closet, Spurs have offered to refresh the Bernabéu coffers with £54m and then let off a few party poppers if they bring the 30-year-old back to N17. There is a snag, though. It says here Bale earns around £600,000 a week through wages and endorsements at Real and Spurs could, at best, match half of that. So while Bale would appreciate a nice cake and a birthday knees-up in north London, he’d expect much greater gifts landing in his bank account each week to play football there. He’s pooped his own party.
