The summer transfer window of 2020 brought about the return of Gareth Bale to Tottenham Hotspur, the club where the player came under the radar of Real Madrid and eventually made a record transfer move to.
However, the almost fairy tale like return has not gone according to plan, with the Welshman having started only ten games across all competitions, with only two of them coming in the Premier League. Additionally, he has been a shadow of his former self, managing to score a goal each across all the four competitions that Spurs are participating in.
The general feeling around the club is not in favour of Bale, since his sky-high wages are not being justified with the performance that he is putting on right now.
His loan deal will expire at the end of the season, and should the latter half of the campaign not bring about a change in the 31-year-old’s attitude and displays on the pitch, he will return to Real Madrid with Spurs not entertaining the option of buying the player.
With his infamous history at Real Madrid, the Spanish giants will not hesitate to put him on the transfer list to get rid of him immediately.
Fellow Madrid player Isco, who has been on the bench for the majority of the season so far, is also very unhappy with Real Madrid and is rumoured to be on his way out of the club. Both Isco and Bale will be on the market in the summer of 2021 if things do not undergo a big change.
