Tottenham remain locked in talks over a sensational deal to re-sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.

Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman, is leading negotiations with Real and Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett, with optimism on all sides of completing the biggest transfer of the summer.



On the Spurs side, the deal is being driven by Levy, who brokered a then world-record £85million fee for Bale to join Real in summer 2013, having signed him as a 17-year-old from Sunday’s opponents Southampton.



Any move is dependent on Real agreeing to subsidise at least half of Bale’s reported £600,000-a-week wages, which the Spanish giants are reluctantly willing to do.

A loan deal is looking most likely, although Real have pushed for a permanent transfer as they look to offload their highest earner, who has two years remaining on his contract.

United are thought to have refused to include either clause in the deal, leaving Spurs clear to sign the one-cap Spain international, who came through the ranks at Real and won the Europa League while on loan at Sevilla last season.

It is unclear if the arrival of Bale, who can play anywhere in the front three, would impact Spurs’ pursuit of a striker but Mourinho is thought to still want a traditional No9 as an Spurs are also close to beating Manchester United to a £25m move for Real left-back Sergio Reguilon, after agreeing to include a number of clauses in the deal.
