Tottenham complete deal for both Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon

Tottenham complete deal for both Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon

Spurs will sign Bale on a season-long loan, although Madrid were initially keen to offload the Welsh winger permanently.

Even Gareth knows that.' Three years ago, while United boss, Mourinho said of Bale and his uncertain future at Real: 'If he is not in the club's plans, I will try to be waiting for him on the other side'.

Spurs have been in discussions to sign 31-year-old Bale seven years after he left for a then world-record fee and it appears all financial hurdles have been overcome. He has gone on to score more than 100 goals for Real and won four Champions Leagues.

Bale will be a free agent at the end of the 2021/22 campaign. "We shall see how it goes".

"I do not comment on hypothetical stuff". It's better not to speak.

Real Madrid are well-stocked at left-back, with Brazil worldwide Marcelo and France's Ferland Mendy already on their squad, so are keen to sell Reguilon to raise funds to balance the books at the club.

"I tried to sign him for Real Madrid, which was not possible to do during my time there". But the president followed my instinct and followed my knowledge and the season I left he brought Gareth to the club.

Spurs suffered a 1-0 defeat to Everton in the first league tie and had to come from behind to beat Lokomotiv Plovdiv in the Europa League on Thursday.
