After recently transferring back to Tottenham Hotspur after a very public fall out with Real Madrid, Gareth Bale will aim to continue his success at the club where he first established himself as an elite footballer.
Before joining Real Madrid in 2013, Bale won the PFA Player of the Year award twice, the first coming when he was just 21 and the second in his departing year in north London. Only four other players have won the award twice, and the 31-year-old also claimed the Premier League Player of the Season and FWA Player of the Year and PFA Young Player of the Year (x2), amongst others, within a three-season spell.
This was also the first time since David Ginola in which a Spurs player had claimed the prestigious award, and in truth, bar Harry Kane, no Tottenham man has come close since.
Competition for this award is arguably tougher than it was when Bale was last in England, with the stars of Manchester City and Liverpool taking over, whilst the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Chelsea's newbies can't be overlooked just yet.
If the Welshman wants to win this award, he may have to help Spurs reach a top four spot as a bare minimum and no doubt get close to or even break the 20 goal margin, just as he did when winning the award in 2013 with 21.
Bale odds for the PFA Player of the Year for the 2020/21 are currently priced at odds of 16/1 and if the winger can find the elite form shown in the past decade, those odds will quickly shrink - click here to claim this bet at 16/1.
