Gareth Bale could wear the same No.3 shirt that he donned during his famous breakthrough Champions League season at Tottenham if he does end up completing a stunning return to the club.

Would Bale's prospective return to Tottenham be a success?

Players who have worn No.9 have not tended to set the world alight in recent times for Spurs, with Vicent Janssen, Roberto Soldado and Roman Pavlyuchenko the latest three to wear the number.

The same is true with No.14, with flops Georges-Kevin N'Koudou and Clinton N'Jie the most recent two to be given the number, although Bale's Madrid teammate Luka Modric had a more enjoyable time wearing it during his time at Spurs.

The No.3 shirt is available, however, after Danny Rose was not given a number for the current season ahead of his prospective move to Genoa, and for sentimental reasons Bale may fancy pulling it on again.

Bale spent six happy seasons at Spurs between 2007-13 before his move to Madrid, but he actually began as a left-back, and thus was initially handed the No.16 shirt when he first arrived.

In his second season he changed to No.3, and it was while wearing this number that he famously terrorised the Inter Milan defence twice in the Champions League campaign of 2010-11 before he eventually took the No.11 shirt as he was deployed in a more attacking position.
