Bale arrives in London to complete Tottenham return
MADRID — Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale flew to London on Friday to complete his return to Tottenham.
The Wales international was pictured giving a thumbs-up to Tottenham fans congregating outside the team's training base in north London as he was driven into the complex.
Bale was scheduled to meet officials from Tottenham ahead of agreeing to a likely season-long loan move.
Bale left Tottenham for Madrid in 2013 for €100 million (then $132 million) — a record fee at the time — but he has struggled for game time in recent seasons.
The 31-year-old Bale will seek to rediscover his motivation for the game under manager Jose Mourinho at Tottenham, where he would form an exciting-looking forward line with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.
His contract at Madrid runs until 2022.
