Bale is back at Tottenham! Spurs land Reguilon too

A charter flight from Madrid arrived in London yesterday carrying two very important passengers for the habitants of the north part of the city. Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon are signing for Tottenham Hotspur, the former as a return loanee and the other as a purchase with a buy-back option.

Bale arrives as one year loan with an option to extend the stay for another year, the last of his Real contract. Reputable sources claim that Tottenham will pay just 40% of his €17,000,000 per season salary, while Madrid will pick up the rest. Bale is bound to become the highest-paid player in the Premier League.

After seven years, Bale is back at the club for which he scored 56 goals and had two more assists in 203 matches.

Spurs plan to put Bale to an intensive training program for four weeks in order to ensure his full working capacity and longevity. As his injury susceptibility seems to be the only possible bad aspect of this deal.

Jose Mourinho didn't get to work with Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid as the Portuguese manager arrived after he departed. But the Special One claims he asked for Bale before he left.

The other man coming, the one playing on the position Bale started his career - left-back, Reguilon arrives for a fee that could rise up to €35,000,000. The 23-year-old will sign a five-year contract while Real will have a buy-back clause for €45,000,000 according to sources.

Reguilon impressed last season with Sevilla on loan and was the most sought after left-back in Europe.

For both transfers Spurs faced competition from Manchester United. In capturing these two players, after already having a solid window, Tottenham are showing clear intent of proving last season was a fluke. Spurs are gunning for that Champions League spot and based on the transfer dealings, United is the squad that is in the risk of losing out to them.

Spurs have signed right-back Matt Doherty, midfielder Piere-Emile Hojbjerg, and reserve goalkeeper Joe Hart prior to these major signings.
