Understandably, negotiations went well from Wednesday night to Thursday morning.
Bale and Reguilon are likely to meet conditions that will enable them to avoid quarantine upon their arrival in London.
Besides arriving from an elite sporting environment where coronavirus protocols have been adhered to, the two players will need to return negative test results within five days before entering the UK.
Bale is keen to play for a club he believes will be respected and admired again.
Although he has played for Wales twice this month, he has not been quite fit and it is expected that it will take him a month to get back to his best.
Real Madrid agreed to let him leave on loan in order to get his wages of £ 500,000 a week from their books, and Tottenham did everything they could to sign him this week.
In addition to being suspended by Zinedine Zidane, Bale has had a difficult relationship with Spanish media and Real Madrid fans, and is looking forward to a fresh start with Tottenham.
Taking a move in his favor was seen by Manchester United as a backup option for Jadon Sancho, but they did not make an offer, although they had tried to sign him on numerous occasions since he was in Southampton 13 years earlier.
Jose Coy on the return of Bell
Jose Mourinho has once again kept his silence about Gareth Bale’s impending return to Tottenham after Lokomotiv Plovdiv’s victory in the second round of Thursday’s Europa League qualifiers.
“I can’t comment, I don’t comment on something I don’t know,” the Portuguese said.
“For me, at this moment, until I was told that Gareth Bale is a Tottenham player, I still think, feel and respect the fact that he is a Real Madrid player, so I will not comment on the Real Madrid player.”
Bale enjoyed much of his success on the right wing, and despite White Hart Lane’s famous chants mentioning Harry Redknapp that he is “playing on the left,” the 31-year-old is expected to move into position. Return to the Premier League.
In the fall of his career, those quick bursts abroad will likely become more and more rare, but Bale will definitely retain the ability to storm and find enough space to shoot from a distance with his favorite left foot – something he does. Better than almost anyone.
In the final season of his first spell at Tottenham, Bale scored no fewer than nine Premier League goals in the Premier League from outside the penalty area – no fewer than the next best players that season combined. In fact, no one has come close to matching that number since then.
For Mourinho at Tottenham, the sense of urgency is even more acute. Lucas Moura is still a celebrity considering his championships in the Champions League semi-finals in Amsterdam, but there are now question marks over his production on the right flank and the acquisition of Bale would be a huge upgrade.
The suggestions suggest that Tottenham will still be interested in signing a striker in addition to Bale, but there is also an interesting possibility that the Welshman could fill in Harry Kane if the England captain faced the kind of layoff that hampered his activity. Last season.
Bale will be more powerful than the alternatives, and if his movement deteriorates in the coming years, it is tempting to think that he could move into the role of center-forward which was played by his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo smoothly.
Analysis: Bell’s signature of computed risk
Cafe Sola Kool from Sky Sports News on the transfer program:
There are three reasons why this happens: The first is that Bale wants to play with Tottenham again. Second, Real Madrid want to sell him, and they need to sell him to get his wages from their books and the third reason is that Tottenham want him back, Daniel Levy wants him.
“There was a big change of mood for Bale and Real Madrid. Last summer, he came very close to a move to China which was banned at the last minute, but Real Madrid made it clear that they want it outside this season. Summer. Bale stuck to his gun and said.” I have two years left on my contract, I’m not going anywhere. ”But in the past two weeks, his position has changed and he wants to play football again will get that at Tottenham.
“Tottenham’s motto is” Dare to do “, which means you have to believe in yourself and take the risk. Tottenham risks signing Bill, but it’s a calculated risk, and it makes sense for them because they’re going to get him on loan, and they’ll pay a portion of his salary over the course of The whole season looks like it will cost them about 20 million pounds and in the current economic climate, it’s a logical deal for all parties. “
Analysis: Time to leave Bale for Real Madrid
Ramon Calderon, the former president of Real Madrid, on Sky Sports News:
He came here as the best player from Tottenham, but the point now is to see if he can get his time back as a good player because Zinedine Zidane is clearly not counting on him. It is time to end this situation and for me it’s the best moment to do it.
“I think it will be [a permanent deal]. He has two years on his contract so if he leaves this season I feel he will stay at the new club for the rest of his career. He has another three or four years at a good level, so if he went to Tottenham he might end his career there.
“I don’t know if Dele Alli will be part of the deal, but I don’t think Tottenham will want to let him go because he’s a very good player. Any big team would want him to be on their side.”
