After a semi-productive loan at Tottenham Hotspur this season, Spurs may consider making a permanent move for the Welsh star, but there are so many factors in this move.
After a slow start to his Spurs loan this season, Bale eventually hit a decent run of form which included having the highest goal involvement in the league for any player who has played under 1000 Premier League minutes, registering a very respectful 11 goals and two assists in 20 games in the end.
The forward had previously played with Tottenham between 2007 and 2013, notching up 55 goals in 203 appearances before making a world record move to Real Madrid. It does seem that these days could come back, because the form is still clearly there. There are, however, many issues to this potential transfer.
Harry Kane's future is no doubt a huge factor in whoever is moving to Spurs, as is, of course, the new manager, whoever that may be. At the same time, given Daniel Levy's embarrassing exit from the European Super League and another year of no Champions League football, there is surely very little in the bank set aside for megastars this summer.
If Madrid move their price tag down, anything can happen, but we doubt they will do so. Nevertheless, Bale is the bookies favourite to move to Spurs at 11/4.
