Bale return impossible


Charlie Nicholas reckons Gareth Bale back to Tottenham would be “impossible,” while fellow Soccer Saturday pundit Paul Merson can’t see why he’d leave Real Madrid.

The Football Leaks website this week published what they claim is a document that shows Spurs have the first buy-back option from Real if another Premier League club tries to sign him, along with confirmation that the deal did eclipse Cristiano Ronaldo’s world-record fee – something the Bernabeu outfit have always denied.
