TOTTENHAM MAKE BREAKTHROUGH IN DEAL TO BRING GARETH BALE BACK.

Tottenham could be on the verge of re-signing Real Madrid man Gareth Bale on deadline day according to Sky Sports UK.

The Welsh superstar left the club in 2013 for what was then a world record transfer fee of £85million.

Spurs have not yet agreed a fee for the winger and his staggering £500,000-a-week contract could prove to be a sticking point.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has reportedly travelled to Madrid for talks with his Real Madrid counterpart Florentino Perez to discuss a deal for the 30-year-old.

Levy went to Perez to discuss the sale of Christian Eriksen before he moved to Inter Milan.

But it was during that conversation that Levy expressed Tottenham’s desire to re-sign Bale.

Tottenham know they cannot get anywhere near matching the forward’s current salary and talks have centred around structuring a deal with Real to satisfy all parties.

But the vast finances involved means it is increasingly unlikely Tottenham can pull off what will undoubtedly be the most sensational deal of the January transfer window.
