MetiNews.Com - Tottenham Hotspur are working hard on a deal to bring Gareth Bale back to the club
Breaking News ! Tottenham Hotspur have made their most significant move yet in this year’s transfer market. Following Sunday’s disappointing defeat at home to Everton, losing 1-0, Spurs have launched a sensational bid to bring Gareth Bale back to the club. The Welshman, who spent six years at Tottenham before joining Real Madrid in 2013, is thought to be closing in on a return on a season-long loan deal. While Bale has been out of favour under Zinedine Zidane in the Spanish capital, moving for him is a serious statement of intent shown by Spurs.

Here, football.london has taken a close look at exactly who they would be. Winners Jose Mourinho Let’s start with the obvious winner. After a flat performance in the defeat by Everton, it was clear that Jose Mourinho could benefit from another option in attack. Spurs managed only five shots on target as Carlo Ancelotti’s side secured an impressive win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. While Mourinho will be tasked with rejuvenating Bale, who started only 12 La Liga games for Real last season, the Portuguese coach is inheriting a genuinely world-class player, one with the ability to transform Tottenham’s fortunes. Bale scored 26 goals in his last season at White Hart Lane, a marker of just how deadly he can be when he maintains his fitness throughout an entire season.

A season-long loan eases the pressure on Spurs, but if Bale returns and hits the ground running, it could have major implications for the club’s fortunes this season. Harry Kane Given Bale’s goalscoring record, the 31-year-old has the ability to significantly ease the burden on Harry Kane’s shoulders. Kane has admirably stepped up to the challenge of being Spurs’ main goals provider over the last six years, but it is clear that the England captain requires as much help as he can get. The 27-year-old finished last season with a flourish but looked understandably jaded during the Everton defeat following a disjointed pre-season. Harry Kane could certainly benefit from Gareth Bale's qualities.

Of course, if Bale and Kane quickly establish an effective understanding, with Son Heung-min and Dele Alli also in the attack, it could spell trouble for the rest of the league. Daniel Levy After missing out on Champions League qualification, this summer was always going to be important for Spurs. However, the club has acted impressively in the transfer market despite the financial impact of Covid-19, securing deals for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty and Joe Hart. Should Bale and his Real teammate Sergio Reguilon join the squad, it would represent a hugely productive window for Levy. Bringing back a club legend will lift the mood around the club while key areas of the squad have also been addressed with shrewd acquisitions.

Gareth Bale Yes, Bale stands to gain a great deal from returning to North London.
. Bale’s fallout with Zidane, which saw him marginalised during the latter stages of last season, makes it easy to forget what a stupendous footballer he is at his best. Getting back to Tottenham, a club he knows and loves, could be the perfect antidote for a hellish end to his time in Madrid.

If he can emulate the form that earned him the PFA Players’ Player of the Year awards in 2011 and 2013, expect fresh footage of him wheeling away in celebration after scoring a wonder goal to replace the clips of him pretending to be asleep while Real Madrid play. Losers Manchester United While Spurs appear to be clear front-runners to land Bale, AS have reported that Manchester United remain in the frame. And while United have had their sights set on Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, missing out on an obvious alternative to the English winger would be a blow to the Red Devils. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add a wide player in the current window, but United have been frustrated in their attempts to land Sancho with Dortmund refusing to budge on their £108million asking price. Securing Bale on loan seems a much more financially viable option, but if the former Southampton youngster were to choose Spurs, it would leave United with a transfer headache with less than three weeks of the transfer window remaining.
The major tactical questions Jose Mourinho must answer following Tottenham's defeat to Everton
'Imagine the announcement video' - Tottenham fans go nuts as club try to clinch Gareth Bale deal
Steven Bergwijn Assuming that Mourinho sticks with his 4-2-3-1 system, there is a clear possibility that Steven Bergwijn will see his playing time dramatically reduced this season. With Kane up top and Bale, Son and Alli in support, the likes of Bergwijn, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura are likely to play bit-part roles in Mourinho’s first full season in charge. Lamela and Lucas, both 28, expect to be playing regular first-team football at this stage of their careers, while there had been high hopes for Bergwijn, 22, following an explosive start to life in England when he scored on his debut against Manchester City. While the Dutchman would still be expected to feature regularly, having another player ahead of him in the pecking order may harm his development.

The former PSV Eindhoven winger is still young and clearly has a bright future, so it would be interesting to see how Bale’s potential arrival would impact him. Zinedine Zidane Zidane barely gave Bale a kick after La Liga returned post-lockdown, but the Frenchman may live to regret not giving the Welshman another chance. So far, Madrid’s business in the transfer window has amounted to recalling Martin Odegaard from his loan at Real Sociedad. With Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic having failed to shine following their moves to the Bernabeu, Bale’s absence could lead to a real shortage in attack for Zizou. Bale excelling on his return to Spurs coupled with woes up top for Real could spell trouble for Zidane.
