Gareth Bale would inject some much-needed “magic” into Tottenham’s side should the Real Madrid forward return to north London, according to Harry Redknapp.
Tottenham are in negotiations with Madrid over a possible deal for Bale, who left Spurs for Los Blancos in a €100million (£85m) transfer in 2013.
Bale has helped Madrid win four Champions League trophies – scoring decisive goals in two of those finals – and two LaLiga titles, yet has fallen down the pecking order in the Spanish capital.
While he has struggled with injuries, Bale has often been left out in the cold even when fit by Zinedine Zidane, who played the Wales star just 20 times across all competitions last term.
Former Spurs manager Redknapp – who gave Bale the chance to thrive as a winger rather than as a full-back, where he initially played – believes the 31-year-old would be a brilliant addition for Tottenham or Manchester United, who have also been linked. (Vanguard)
