harry redknapp says gareth bales tottenham return can lead them back into the champions league

Harry Redknapp believes Gareth Bale could lead Tottenham back into the Champions League places if the club complete a sensational transfer this summer.

The Real Madrid star has been linked with a move back to his former side and Redknapp, who had four years with Welshman in north London, thinks it would be a great deal for both parties.

Bale left Spurs for the LaLiga club in a record £86million deal in 2013, a year after Redknapp also departed White Hart Lane.

The 31-year-old has gone on to win 13 trophies in seven years but has fallen out of favour with current Real boss Zinedine Zidane and is seeking a way out. His agent Jonathan Barnett told BBC Wales that ‘Gareth still loves Spurs… It’s where he wants to be.’

And Redknapp thinks the winger would light up the Premier League once again and could take Tottenham back into contention for the top four.

‘He’d be great for Tottenham and great for the Premier League,’ Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

‘It would be a great move for Gareth Bale as he needs to be playing. It’s a waste of a great talent to see him not involved at a team like Real Madrid so he could really make the difference for Tottenham, that’s for sure. He’s such a special talent.

‘I think Tottenham will pay a percentage of his wages. Let’s say he’s on £500,000-a-week, Tottenham will pay around a third of that knowing Daniel Levy. He’ll certainly do a good deal for Tottenham.

‘He’s a great athlete and he’s a complete all-rounder: he can run, head and shoot. Hopefully, he’ll come and they’ll take their time with him and bed him in slowly. He’d be such a boost for Tottenham. 

‘With a forward line of Son, Kane, Bale and Dele Alli that’s a scary attacking line-up and they’d do some damage.

‘At present, I don’t see them finishing in the top four, but signing Gareth would give them a much better chance of doing that. Bale would tip the balance in their favour as he’s such a good player.’ 

The Wales captain became a fan favourite at Spurs where he scored 56 goals and provided 58 assists in 203 appearances.

Sportsmail understands Real Madrid will pay more than half of Bale’s £500,000-per-week wages to facilitate the deal to Tottenham.

Chairman Daniel Levy, who is also trying to close a deal for Real’s highly-rated left-back Sergio Reguilon, was at the forefront of Tottenham’s negotiations on Tuesday.

Sources claimed that Spurs are even prepared to use Dele Alli as a makeweight in the deal for Bale, such was their determination to clinch a return for the 31-year-old.

Manchester United have also been linked with the winger with AS reporting that the Red Devils are still in with a chance, despite losing ground on Spurs in the race for his signature.

EMILIANO MARTINEZ made the perfect start to life at Aston Villa by saving John Lundstram’s penalty on his debut.

With 35 minutes on the clock at Villa Park, Sheffield United were awarded a spot kick when Matt Targett tripped Chris Basham.

But after a needlessly-long VAR check by Mike Dean, Lundstram stepped up and smashed the ball to Martinez’s right.

The Argentine, who signed from Arsenal for £20million this month, flew across to make the save, getting two hands on it and pushing it past the post.

It compounded a nightmare start for the visiting Blades who had skipper John Egan sent off after just 12 minutes for hauling down Ollie Watkins.

micah richards claims pep guardiola is not trusting his team and their defence must be sorted

Micah Richards believes Manchester City have some serious defensive issues to sort out if they are to reclaim their place as champions of England.

Pep Guardiola‘s side face Wolves in their first game of the new campaign on Monday night and Richards is doubtful that they will be fully prepared.

‘City’s problems are defensive,’ Sportsmail’s columnist said during his role as a pundit on Sky Sports.

‘Losing Vincent Kompany was a massive risk. Losing Laporte for a lot of last season was a massive miss. Problem lies with Fernandinho dropping back and Rodri trying to fill in the gaps. The defence is then left too exposed. 

There’s no real consistency. I don’t even think Pep knows his best back four. Kyle Walker is probably the only certainty in that side. 

He’s not trusting his team. When I was playing under Mancini we’d always rotate the full-backs, it’s just that centre back pairing. 

‘The manager has lost faith in his centre backs – every window they’re linked with one. They’ve brought in Ake – is he going to be the one to lead that line? I’m not too sure.
