Breaking News ! Tottenham Hotspur are hoping to fie up deals for Real Madrid duo Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale this week and they will not be held up by current government travel corridors rules. Spurs are expected to tie up a permanent deal for 23-year-old left-back Reguilon first. Tottenham did not enter the window aiming to sign a new left-back as a priority, but have long admired the Spanish full-back and were keeping close tabs on his situation after his return from Sevilla.

Travellers from Spain currently have to isolate on arrival in the UK but when it comes to elite sportsmen, there are exemption rules which means a player would only need a negative COVID-19 test before travelling as well as MRI tests undertaken first in Spain. Tottenham are also looking to finalise a loan move for Bale to return to north London, with reports in Spain suggesting he left Real's training ground early on Wednesday morning. Madrid are believed to prefer a permanent move for the 31-year-old attacker, who left Tottenham for Spain seven years ago, and both sides are still locked in negotiations. Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett told BBC Wales on Tuesday: "Gareth still loves Spurs. We are talking [Spurs, Real and Bale's camp].
." He then told the Associated Foreign Press on Wednesday morning: "It's close but not done. It's a complicated deal." All parties are hopeful that a deal can be tied up for the move, with Tottenham looking for a loan deal while picking up a chunk of his huge wages, reported to be around £600,000-a-week before tax. The Welshman has been recovering from a knee injury picked up on international duty, which is not believed to be serious.

Even if they can tie up both deals Tottenham are still looking for a striker and centre-back but they will have to offload players as well, particularly to keep in line with their foreign player limit issues. Bale is considered homegrown due to his academy years at Southampton but the arrival of Reguilon would take them to 18 foreign players in their European squad, one over the limit and would require somebody to be left out. Argentine Juan Foyth is expected to move on this window along with fellow centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers, albeit homegrown, believed to be set to seal a switch out of the club. Mourinho stated that he would like to keep right-back Serge Aurier in the wake of Matt Doherty's arrival but that it would be down to the player and any potential offers. The potential arrival of Bale could also see the club consider offers for the likes of Erik Lamela and Ryan Sessegnon as the potential for their game time drops, the latter affected by both the potential moves of the Welshman and Reguilon.
