Bale's parting message to Zidane as star makes Tottenham return


Gareth Bale has been determined to leave Real Madrid on good terms, according to reports in Spain.

The Welshman will complete a loan move back to his former club Tottenham on Friday, seven years after he left north London to move to Madrid to become the most expensive player in the world at that time.

Bale’s time in Spain has been a hugely successful one, as he picked up four Champions League trophies – scoring in two of those finals – as well as two La Liga titles.

He scored 105 goals in 251 games for Real, but the latter years of his time at the Bernabeu have been blighted by fitness and form issues.

Manager Zinedine Zidane had started to turn against the Welshman towards the end of his first spell at the club, when he named Bale on the bench for the Champions League final against Liverpool, only for him to come on and score twice.

After the Frenchman’s brief sabbatical and then return Bale has scarcely been used in the team, effectively being told to leave the club and coming close to doing so last year when a move to China broke down.

Now he’s heading home though, and Spanish television station Cuatro says he was saying his goodbyes to teammates and staff in Madrid on Thursday.

That included Zidane, with the report adding that Bale sought out the Frenchman to wish him and the team good luck for the coming season, showing that he held no hard feelings.

Bale will still technically be a Real player as he joins Spurs on loan, but there is little chance of him ever playing for the club again despite having two years left on his contract.
