Tottenham Coach Jose Mourinho wants to sign at least three players this January transfer window after the arrival of Benfica’s Gedson Fernandes, MySportDab reports.
Spurs are now interested in their former player Gareth Bale but a deal for the Welsh Superstar looks challenging due to his weekly wages of £650,000 which runs until June 2022.
MySportDab understands a loan deal for Bale who Real want to sell is still possible but the two clubs are working on a permanent transfer deal.
Bale has played just 15 matches this season due to his hamstring and calf problems and yet again suffered an ankle knock in the Copa del Rey last week.
Jose Mourinho is keen to improve his attacking options following Striker Harry Kane’s serious injury until the end of the season possibly.
Tottenham other likely choices are either Spanish international Paco Alacer and German midfielder Mario Gotze but a reunion with Bale is still top priority.
Manchester United have also been linked with a move for Bale and former Spurs player Dimitar Berbatov has urged the Wales international to return to the Premier League.
He said: “Gareth Bale did score in midweek for Real Madrid, but it’s sad to see him injured again, you always want players like him to play every time.
“But I’m surprised that even when you play at this top level of football for Real Madrid, you still have so many injuries throughout your career and can’t seem to just avoid them, what’s happening?
“I’m very sure Real have a great medical department, but the player needs to understand his body and if needed should be allowed to train in a different way.
“I love watching him play, I want also him to always be fit and healthy, if he does not want to leave Real Madrid I’d like him to stay.
“But if he wants to leave, I would love to see him back to Spurs or join Man United. In the end it’s his decision to make.”
With Bale still on Tottenham’s transfer wishlist, the Premier League club are aware they could lose midfielder Christian Eriksen before the January transfer window closes.
