Why Tottenham re-signing Gareth Bale would end trophy drought
Bale, 30, became an instant hit at Tottenham and was at the top of his game before Real Madrid bought him for a then-world-record of £85.2m. He went on to become one of the most vital players in the Los Blancos’ history.
In over 200 appearances for Real Madrid, Bale has scored 104 goals, including two goals against Liverpool in the final of the 2017/18 Champions League. He has won several awards with the club and is currently in his 7th season at Madrid.
Despite being a world-class player, the winger has found it hard to get regular game time under Zinedine Zidane. This season, he has played just 11 La Liga games.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho has drawn Tottenham out of a difficult situation they found themselves under Mauricio Pochettino. Though they are nowhere near to replicating their brilliant displays from last year, the North-London club have managed to turnaround their fortunes.
They have also qualified for the knockout stages of this year’s edition of the Champions League and are looking fine under the guidance of the Portuguese.
However, with some senior players set to leave after contract expiry, Mourinho would be hoping to replace them as early as January. In that case, Christian Eriksen has been in the limelight.
The Dane had earlier told that he was ready to leave in search of a new challenge, according to the Guardian. And this winter window would be the right time for Mourinho to offload him and bring in Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.
The Wales international has already been at the club and it would be easier for him to settle, with Mourinho now in charge.
At Tottenham, Bale would be the best option on the right wing ahead of Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura. He can torment the opponent’s defence with his pace, and his powerful shots would be much more convincing.
The Speedster alongside Kane, Son, and Alli would see the Lilywhites become one of the most powerful and lethal attacking teams in the Premier League.

Therefore, by taking advantage of Bale’s situation under Zidane, Tottenham must succeed in bringing back their former player. And under the guidance of Mourinho, they can expect to win some trophies, which they have been deprived of for many years.
