Gareth Bale on verge of Spurs return as Mourinho bemoans 'too many players'

Guardian - fre, 18/09/2020 - 13:00
  • Bale and Reguilón fly in to seal moves from Real Madrid
  • Tottenham manager outlines admiration for Danny Ings

Gareth Bale’s dramatic return to Tottenham is on the verge of confirmation after he arrived in London to complete a season-long loan deal. The Real Madrid forward was greeted by a group of cheering fans as he was driven into the club’s training ground to tie up the finer details of a move to will almost certainly end his spell in Spain.

The excitement around Bale’s arrival has gathered momentum since Wednesday when his agent, Jonathan Barnett, said a deal to bring him back to Spurs was close. He boarded a private jet owned by Enic, the club’s majority shareholders, on Friday morning and landed at Luton Airport. An announcement appears to be a matter of time and Bale – who will not sign in time for a fairytale return against another former club, Southampton, on Sunday – could make his second Spurs debut by the end of the month.

Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend

Guardian - fre, 18/09/2020 - 01:01

Chelsea and Liverpool could both be vulnerable, Nathan Aké has a rare chance and are Newcastle the Entertainers again?

Last season Liverpool won 15 league games by the odd goal, and began their title defence in similar style, beating Leeds 4-3 in an indecently entertaining match. But this habit is not an easy one to sustain, and it is worth nothing that they have lost five of their past 14 games, conceding 19 times in the process. It is true that now is a good time to play Chelsea – Kepa Arrizabalaga is still first choice, Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech are unfit, and Timo Werner and Kai Havertz have not fully settled. But Werner still looked sharp against Brighton, while Havertz can change the course of a game at any moment. If Chelsea somehow refrain from tossing goals in their own net, they will ask some serious questions of a back four that has looked more vulnerable of late. DH

The Welshman is set to join Tottenham on loan after seven years at Real Madrid, but instead of sadness there is only relief

The saddest thing about Gareth Bale’s departure from Real Madrid is that no one is really sad at all. Instead, there is anger and disappointment but mostly a kind of weary relief, a release. He’s gone? Good, we can all get on with our lives. And no one more so than him: maybe the Welshman can play a bit of football again, and maybe he’ll be brilliant too, just not at the Bernabéu where it has been effectively over for some time. Now at least, now at last, it is actually over – four European Cups, two league titles and more than a hundred goals later.

Which, when you put it like that ...

Reguilón, the 23-year-old left-back who excelled on loan for Sevilla during their Europa League-winning campaign last season, will join for £27.6m on a long-term contract. Both players have already completed their medicals in Madrid in line with Covid-19 guidance.
