Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly completed the loan signing of Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale.
Having fallen out of favour at the Bernabeu, the Wales international has been linked with a move away from the Spanish champions for some time.
However, given the financial concerns arising from the coronavirus pandemic, few expected the 31-year-old attacker to be in contention for a return to former club Tottenham, especially on a loan deal.
Nevertheless, The Daily Mail claims that the Welshman has formally put pen to a paper on terms with the Lilywhites ahead of an official announcement before the end of this week.
The report adds that Spurs are willing to pay Bale’s wages in full, leaving them with a £13m outlay this campaign.
Bale initially left Tottenham in 2013 after Real Madrid agreed to sign him for £85.3m.
