Report details what Tottenham need to do if they are to bring Bale back
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham could play a major role in which club Gareth Bale is at if he decides to leave Real Madrid, but a deal would not be straight forward for the north Londoners, according to a report.
The Mirror have claimed on their website that tough negotiator Daniel Levy placed a clause in the contract of the 28-year-old on his then world record £85.3million move to Real Madrid four years a go which would see Spurs have the option to bring him back to the club.
However, it is not believed to be a simple buy-back option with it said that Tottenham will have to match a bid from a rival club that is accepted by Real Madrid within 72 hours if they are to re-sign the popular attacker.
Additionally, it is also stated that the clause will expire in June 2019, leaving Spurs with less than two years to hold an advantage in any future deal for Bale.
The report follows on from BBC pundit and former Arsenal man Ian Wright insisting that Levy should bring Bale back to Tottenham to help the club move up to the next level.

However, Spurs’ transfer record currently stands at £30million spent on Moussa Sissoko and they are likely going to have to smash that if they are to bring the Wales international star back to the club.
