Bale back as Tottenham confirm stunning double signing from Real Madrid

Date published: Saturday 19th September 2020 6:22

Tottenham have confirmed the return of Gareth Bale and arrival of Sergio Reguilon in a double signing from Real Madrid.

Bale returns to Spurs seven years after leaving them in what was then a world-record transfer.

During his time in Spain, Bale won the Champions League four times, as well as La Liga twice. The Wales captain scored more than 100 goals for Madrid.

He has fallen out of favour over the past couple of seasons, though, and has been pushing for a move away.

Now, the winger has returned to his former club, joining on loan for the season. He will wear the number nine shirt.

Bale’s previous spell at Tottenham began when he was just 17 years old, and lasted for six seasons. Now, he has the chance to add to his 203 appearances and 55 goals for the club.

Reguilon signs five-year deal

Meanwhile, left-back Reguilon has signed a five-year contract with Spurs, where he takes the number three shirt.

Reguilon enjoyed a fruitful season on loan at Sevilla in 2019-20, winning the Europa League. However, there was no space for him back at Madrid.

Therefore, he has moved on to find a new permanent home in the Premier League with Tottenham – who have beaten the likes of Manchester United to his signature.

Reguilon is a full Spain international, having made his senior debut earlier this year.
