Gareth Bale is expected to arrive in London on Friday to complete a sensational return to Tottenham on loan.

Spurs have also agreed a deal worth in excess of £25m for Real left-back Sergio Reguilon, with the 23-year-old expected to complete a medical in the next 24 hours.

Mourinho on Wednesday refused to be comment on negotiations while Bale remained a Real player but, in an indication he is behind the deal, he pointedly revealed he had tried to sign the winger for both Manchester United and Real Madrid – the year before he joined the Spanish club from Spurs in a then world-record £85m move in 2013.

Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett on Thursday morning told Standard Sport an agreement between Spurs, Real Madrid and the Welshman was "very close but not there yet".

It is not clear if the deal will include an option for Spurs to make the transfer permanent next summer but Bale has two years remaining on his Real contract and would not be welcomed back to the Spanish capital, at least while Zidane remains in charge.

United held strong interest in Reguilon but were unwilling to include clauses in the deal which would allow Real to buy back the defender for an increased fee or match any future bids for him.

The Spanish giants pushed for a permanent deal or for Spurs to cover 100 percent of Bale's wages for the duration of his loan, but they have reluctantly agreed to compromise in a bid to offload their highest earner, whose relationship with the fans, head coach Zinedine Zidane, and the Spanish media has broken down.
