Stats show that the Real Madrid star is trailing the Spurs forward since 2014.

With Gareth Bale starring in the Champions League this week, Tottenham fans were once again left wondering what may have been.

It has been three years since his high profile move to Real Madrid, in which time he has very much become a Galactico at the Bernabeu.

This season he has started to truly settle, with a series of impressive performances culminating in his semi final goal against Manchester City.

Spurs have also undergone a transformation, with this season seeing them challenge for the Premier League title and take serious strides forward under Mauricio Pochettino.

Key to that has been striker Harry Kane, who has built on his breakout season last year to once again lead the Premier League scoring charts.

He is very much the star at White Hart Lane these days, but which players has been better since Bale departed for Spain?

Oulala decided to find out, and the results were surprising to say the least.

As the table shows, Harry Kane has been utterly dominant in that period, as he beats Bale in five key areas.

The most notable is goals, as he has managed 46 for Tottenham, a whole 14 more than Bale has bagged for Real Madrid.

He has also managed significantly more shots, a higher conversion rate and a better shot accuracy than the former Spurs star.

Now, it is worth noting that he has managed more appearances and more minutes that Bale, who has suffered several injuries during his time in Spain.

That does not detract from Kane’s achievement though, with this further proof to any who many question if he is truly a star.
