Gareth Bale became a superstar at Tottenham. The winger spent six seasons in North London, but it was only when he bagged 21 Premier League goals in the 2012-13 campaign that the world really sat up and took notice.
His exploits earned him a big money move to Spanish super club Real Madrid, and at the time he became the most expensive player in history at a rumoured £85m. With lightning pace and a cannon for a left foot, all the signs suggested that the Welshman would set La Liga alight.
However his career has since been derailed somewhat by a whole host of injuries, causing him to miss over a third of Real Madrid’s games since his move. Despite his inconsistent game time, Bale has still managed to rack up 70 goals for Los Blancos in all competitions, on the way to winning a league title and three Champions Leagues.
Now however it seems that the Spanish club are growing tired of the injury problems, and the winger has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League. Manchester United has long been the suggested destination, but this week Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino suggested he would happily bring the Welsh international back to North London.
According to the Express, the Argentinian manager explained how Bale “keeps contact with all the people here that worked here in the past.” So could we see the superstar winger back in the Premier League some time soon?
