It is fair to say that Tottenham Hotspur fans are not particularly optimistic over rumours that Gareth Bale could be back on their radar.
Bale has been linked with a return to Tottenham on multiple occasions over the past two years.
But Spurs fans have seen these rumours all before, and there is no longer the excitement that they once created.
Don’t do this to me. I can’t take it. We don’t have onomah anymore to trade so Real Madrid aren’t gonna listen to any other offer ☠️— Matt (@MathIsFun2020) January 21, 2020

Lol, I wish, but never happening. (I hope I have to eat my own words.)— Rajiv L (@RKLala81) January 21, 2020
This is hilarious, every window for last 4 or 5 we’ve been linked! Even his basic wage is miles beyond what we would entertain, and even on par with our highest earner he would then be taking a massive cut. Move on— Andy McGowan (@MrMac1985) January 21, 2020
If Bale was brought back to Tottenham he would unquestionably be a wonderful addition.
Even though he has struggled for his best form in recent years at Madrid, the Welsh winger would still bring a winning mentality and a huge amount of quality to Tottenham.
However, with Bale on a huge contract at Madrid, Spurs could struggle to afford his wages and any transfer does seem very unlikely at this stage.
