Tottenham keen to beat Man United to Gareth Bale?

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen to edge out Manchester United in the race to sign Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale.

The Red Devils had been the No. 1 favourites to sign the Welshman, possibly on loan, but BBC Sport reports that the Lilywhites are in talks to re-sign the attacker, who scored 56 goals in 203 appearances for Spurs between 2007 and 2013.

The 31-year-old has fallen out of Zinedine Zidane’s plans as he has made just 16 appearances last season in all competitions. He recently admitted that he would consider a return to the Premier League.

The report adds that Man United’s waiting game over Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho has given Tottenham the advantage, with the striker now weighing up a possible move to North London.

Tottenham will have to pay around £18m for Bale who still has two years left on to run on his contract at Madrid.
