Tottenham were interested in re-signing Gareth Bale from Real Madrid in January.
Tottenham could be a destination for Gareth Bale if Harry Kane leaves north London this summer, says former France and Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf. Reports earlier this week suggested Real Madrid may allow Bale to leave for free at the end of the season in order to get him out of the club. But the Welshman's mega wages could still be a stumbling block for potential suitors, where he is understood to earn around £350,000-a-week.
Leboeuf believes Bale still has what it takes to compete at the top level despite years of uncertainty at Real, especially under Zinedine Zidane.
And he reckons Spurs could look to bring Bale back to the club if Harry Kane, who has been linked with a move away, leaves and Real do not want a fee for the Welshman.
"He's a high-level footballer, he proved that he can do fantastically well," Leboeuf told ESPN FC.
"Maybe a lack of consistency because maybe he didn't adjust pretty well to Real Madrid, the lifestyle, but also maybe the way they played."
"But he's a tremendous player, he's a fantastic player and I think he will find any club, especially if he is free to go."
"I'm sure, especially if maybe Harry Kane goes to another club, maybe Tottenham would love to get him back."
"So we'll see, he can find many clubs in England, maybe Paris Saint-Germain, you never know."
"I still think that he can serve a club very well."
"What I want to say is the guy has been, for like two or three years, in confrontation with the coach or the club, so of course he's not going to give 100 per cent because he's fighting with the club, he doesn't want to play anymore for that club, he doesn't feel something that he likes and the way that he wants to play."
Leboeuf says Bale will find it much easier to find a new club if Real do let him walk away for nothing.
"Of course there's been the money problem but if he is free to go, I'm sure he is going to find a deal where he's going to get that money and he's going to fit to a club," he concluded.
