Tottenham Hotspur in talks with Spanish giants for superstar winger

Spurs are reportedly in talks with Spanish giants Real Madrid over a stunning return for their former star winger Gareth Bale. 

But, there could be a massive stumbling block for the deal to be done as the winger is on a £600,000-a-week wage at the Bernabeu. 

The Welshman is still pretty much a peripheral figure in Zinedine Zidane's first team for the Los Blancos, featuring in just 12 La Liga games this season. 

He has also had a very poor luck with injuries over the years at Santiago Bernabeu. And, also he could never really become a fan favourite despite moving to the club a on a then world-record deal. 

In the summer, the 30-year-old was close to completing a sensational move to China but the Spanish capital club decided against it at the eleventh hour. 

And, the manager Zidane was reportedly not happy with the decision by the club. It even led to rumours of his own exit for a second time from Los Blancos.

Reports in England now claim that Spurs and Real Madrid have started talks regarding the Welshman but that any move is largely dependent on Bale agreeing to a massive pay cut. 

If Real Madrid can offload Bale, their wage bill will become much lesser and they could accept a relatively lower fee for the 30-year-old who cost them £85million when he joined from Spurs in the summer of 2013. 

Daniel Levy is reportedly trying his best to drive a bargain and he is quite famous for it. 

Bale's current contract runs until the summer of 2022 and he desperately needs a move after seeing his career stalled in Spain. 

Spurs have already completed a a £27 million move for Steven Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven on a five-year contract on Wednesday. 

The 22-year-old versatile Dutchman has been scouted on a regular basis by the north London club as per reports in England and he has taken up the number 23 shirt which was available following Christian Eriksen's departure for Inter.
