Tottenham Hotspur rule out Gareth Bale return
Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly ruled out a summer move for Gareth Bale, who is seeking a fresh challenge away from Real Madrid.
The Wales international netted a sublime brace in the Champions League final win over Liverpool on Saturday but shortly after, he suggested that he could move on from Los Blancos in the search for regular gametime.
Spurs have since been one of the possible candidates for the Welshman, but according to BBC Sport, a move appears 'unrealistic' for the club owing to the excessive transfer fees and wages involved.
Nevertheless, Bale is expected to meet up with agent Jonathan Barnett in the coming days and he could thereafter decide on a fresh move away from Los Blancos.
Manchester United are currently deemed favourites to pursue the ex-Southampton graduate with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain also said to be interested in his services.
