So, we didn’t get around to posting this yesterday, but Spanish outlet ‘Cuatro’ reported that Jose Mourinho wants to bring Gareth Bale to Tottenham, and that same report stated that Bale himself would be open to a Tottenham homecoming on a loan deal. That’s actually a conceivable solution. Loaning Bale means a team could pay his wages for a year without paying a transfer fee, and Bale, theoretically, would fit a Jose Mourinho counter-attacking scheme. That stylistic fit may not have been as intriguing last summer when Mauricio Pochettino was Tottenham manager.
