Sky Sports pundit Darren Bent has claimed that he has a 'sneaky suspicion' that Real Madrid's Gareth Bale could re-join Tottenham Hotspur in the summer. 

The Sun recently claimed that the 29-year-old has been offered to the North London outfit in a £10 million loan deal in his bid to escape the Bernabeu boos.  

Added with that, Zinedine Zidane admitted over the weekend that Bale no longer fits Madrid's plans after he was an unused substitute on the last day of the La Liga season, as reported by The Telegraph. 


Speaking to Sky Sports News (18/05/2019 at 4:45 pm), Bent, who would have played with Bale at White Hart Lane, shared his thoughts on the attacking powerhouse. 

On Bale potentially being on his way out of Madrid: "It'll be massive to get someone of his calibre," Bent told Sky Sports News. "To win what he has won - he'll be such a fantastic statement and signing for the Premier League.

"Where would he end up? I don't know. I have got a sneaky suspicion he could end up back at Spurs. With the new stadium, imagine that! Not signed anyone [for last two windows] and then splashed that big signing coming back. It would be tremendous."

The Welshman's biggest success in Madrid have come in Europe where he has helped his team lift a remarkable four Champions League trophies and one La Liga title. 

If he does make a return to England's top-flight, and in particular to Tottenham, then he will prove to be a devastating signing, especially if he can start producing his best form straight away.
