Mauricio Pochettino has refused to rule out a move for Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale.
Bale is of course already etched in Tottenham’s history books after spending six years at the club, scoring 55 goals in 203 appearances before leaving for Real Madrid in 2013 for a World Record £86m fee.
However, the Welshman is quickly falling out of favour at the Bernabeu, having being restricted to just five La Liga appearances this season thanks to a series of injuries.
Los Blancos are reportedly willing to let the winger leave either in January or next summer, and has attracted attention from Manchester United and Chelsea in recent months.
However, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino refused to rule out the 28-year-old returning to the North London club. The Argentine said:
“Of course he’s a fantastic player. I saw him in Madrid when we played there.
“He’s always kept in contact with the people who worked here in the past.
“I don’t have a close relationship with him or the people around him. But you never know what’s going to happen in football.”
Real Madrid have reportedly dropped their asking price to around £60m, with Tottenham retaining the first refusal on his signature should they decide to sell.
