Real Madrid are reportedly willing to offer Tottenham Hotspur a chance at signing Gareth Bale on a permanent deal as they look to raise transfer funds.
According to reports from the Express, Real Madrid could look to capitalize on Gareth Bale’s return to top form in recent weeks, by offering Tottenham a deal to buy the Welshman on a permanent basis in the summer transfer window.
Bale initially struggled to get going on his return to the Premier League for four months, with Jose Mourinho questioning the Welshman’s fitness after a series of niggling injury problems. However, his form picked up in the last few games and he now has 8 goals and 3 assists in 20 games in all competitions.
Bale still has a year left on his contract with the Spanish club and Los Blancos will want to get rid of his £600,000-a- week wages off their book in order to finance a deal for PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe. Real Madrid have been quoted a fee of around £135 million for the World Cup winner by PSG and the La Liga giants will look to fund this signing by selling some of their players.
Mbappe has been in sublime form for PSG this season and has scored 18 league goals in just 23 games, as PSG look to win their fourth consecutive Ligue 1 title. Mbappe is said to be open to a move away from Paris in the summer, with a host of top clubs lining up for the Frenchman’s signature.
However, Real Madrid have been hit by a financial recession due to the pandemic. And it remains to be seen if the Spanish club will find a way to fund a deal for the talismanic PSG striker in the summer, given their current situation.
Thus, offloading players that are not part of manager Zinedine Zidane’s plans moving forward becomes imperative, with Bale one such star who has been out of favour under the Frenchman for the best part of the last two seasons prior to joining Spurs on loan.
And now that he has hit good form at Tottenham, the reigning Spanish champions are hoping that they could entice the north London outfit to take him off their hands on a permanent basis once his loan deal runs out at the end of the ongoing campaign.
