Before we get into this, let’s be clear that we’re not saying Gareth Bale would not be a sublime option for Tottenham and his return has the potential to be a very good thing, but with deals for Paulo Dybala and Giovani Lo Celso in the pipeline, blowing the budget on Bale does not look like a smart move.

The Welshman looks increasingly likely that he’s going to have to lay in the bed that he’s made for himself at Real Madrid after a supposed deal to Chinese Super league club Jiangsu Suning has fallen through (BBC). Real Madrid supposedly called the deal off, denying Bale weekly wages of around £1m per week.

As that deal is now off, the links between Bale and Tottenham are inevitable seeing as the Welshman became the star that he is today when he was plying his trade in North London with the Lilywhites. However, Daniel Levy must avoid temptation and stay away from any potential move for the talented Welsh forward.

The cub are in talks with two top class versatile attacking threats in the form of Giovani Lo Celso and Paulo Dybala, and there is no point in jeopardising moves for either of the Argentine pair to bring back a 30-year-old Gareth Bale on wages that could shatter the club’s system in the same way that Alexis Sanchez has broken the Old Trafford wage bill.

The Dybala links have come from Football.London, whilst Lo Celso is being constantly linked with a move to North London in both the English and Spanish press, and the Argentine has been a feature in The Sun’s live update of Tottenham transfer news today.

Whatever happens surrounding the futures of Dybala and Lo Celso, the fact that Bale is now free to look for new clubs again should not impact those moves, although with the wages and transfer fee combined with Bale’s age and fitness record, it doesn’t look like a move Levy would go for anyway.

  • We wont get any of them it will be another poor transfer summer and Mauricio will be gone as soon as Zidane leaves again

  • Why write a totally nonsensical article on Bale if you know damn well that Levy will not pay wages anywhere near what he is currently earning at Madrid? Bale will not be returning to Spurs as a player.

  • ffs here we go again 2 weeks before the start of the season and the doom and gloom merchants are out in force as per usual this time of year!
    Terrible window / lucky if we make 6th this year / Mauricio is off……same as they have been saying for the last 3 years in a row
    Here’s what’s happened so far;
    We’ve made a club record signing
    We’ve sold our worst player from last season
    Eriksen, Toby + Rose all still at the club so far
    I really don’t understand why the constant stream of transfer drivel seems to be more exciting for some than actually supporting the club?
    Sit back, relax and enjoy the new season

  • This summer is getting to be no different from the rest The chairman is heading towards the same transfer debacle we have had over the last two years. Has he not realized that the clubs he is wanting to buy are holding back and not changing the prices of their players. Again like last year when we could have purchased a player for what was considered cheep, he fluffed around and the player ended up remaining at the club he was playing for. We are going to finish in the same way. We are going to lose the two players we are after.
    By the look of things, I feel that we are not going to have a large amount of trouble with Mauricio. Good managers are hard to come by and Mauricio has to face the chairman’s whose attitude towards his manager is deplorable. If Levi thinks he can do a better job than Pocchitino than take over and let us see if he ends up spending as much as he did the last time he has to change all those managers. Good luck see if you can now ruin the club as we drop down the league and without any trophies.
