When Luka Modric left Tottenham to sign for Real Madrid in the summer of 2012, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy announced a "special partnership" with the Spanish giants.

Instead, Gareth Bale followed Modric from White Hart Lane to the Santiago Bernabeu 12 months later.



Under Mourinho, Real Madrid reached three successive Champions League semi-finals, but fell short each time.



"The way my Real Madrid was playing, I think it was an easy player to fill a space and to get into that tactical dynamic."

During lockdown, he recorded the best results in fitness tests conducted by Madrid's medical staff, yet barely appeared after that.

Seven years down the line, the "partnership" has long been forgotten by most, but those cordial terms may well have helped Spurs in their sensational bid to bring back Bale and also sign left-back Sergio Reguilon.

Bale, for all of his problems at Real Madrid, helped to take the club to that next level and scored in two of the four finals.
