Willian, 32, left Stamford Bridge on a free transfer after winning five trophies in seven seasons because he was offered a two-year extension.

And he has now penned a deal worth £220,000-a-week with Chelsea’s London rivals.

England legend Barnes believes Arsenal have done a great bit of business by landing Willian for nothing.

But he also feels Chelsea have done well too, as they have much more money than Arsenal for transfers and no longer have the risk of being weighed down by an ageing veteran on a long-term, high-salary contract.

Barnes told BonusCodeBets: “I really like Willian as a player and am surprised at what happened because I thought he was one of Chelsea’s best players this year.

“But he’s 32 and Arsenal, who are a team that need good players, clearly thought he was worth bringing him in for an extra year just so they can secure the transfer.

“It’s a very good signing for Arsenal. I don’t necessarily feel it’s bad for Chelsea because they have bough in Timo Werner and others, and look like they are going to make more signings.

“But for Arsenal, whether it is short term or long term, they had to give him the three-year contract offer, otherwise he wouldn’t be interested in joining, so well done to both Chelsea and Arsenal on this.”

Tottenham, who have forked out £20million in wages and loan fees to secure the deal, tweeted: “Bale. Is. Back. Welcome home Gareth Bale.”

The Champions League winner will take the No9 shirt.

He started his career wearing 16, then switched to 3 before making his name as their No11.

He carried the number over to the Spanish capital, with Argentine Erik Lamela inheriting it at Spurs.

Lamela is still at the club, meaning Bale opted for the No9 – last worn by Vincent Janssen.

Spurs paid tribute to Bale in their Twitter bio, referencing each of his numbers worn at the club, as they posted: 16:03:11:09.

Bale tweeted: “To all the Spurs fans, after 7 years, I’m back!”

He scored 105 goals and made 68 assists for the Spanish giants in just 251 games.

But he’s back for his second spell in North London after being frozen out of Madrid’s squad.

The 31-year-old completed his medical in Spain after saying goodbye to his Madrid team-mates.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy made a rare appearance at the club’s training ground on Friday as they looked to finalise the deal. 

Madrid have been keen to get the Welshman’s huge £650,000-per-week wages off the book.

It is understood that Spurs will pay 50 per cent – with the LaLIga champions covering the other half.

Left-back Sergio Reguilon was also unveiled on Saturday evening as the club completed a double deal with Los Blancos.

Tottenham have completed the signing of Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid for £30million.

The left-back, who has signed a five-year deal, will wear the No 3 shirt, which was taken off Danny Rose, who is likely to leave. 

The announcement of Reguilon’s signing was closely followed by confirmation that Gareth Bale has rejoined Tottenham on loan from Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho will hope that Reguilon, 23, will give Tottenham greater defensive security at left-back.

A product of Real Madrid’s academy, he made 22 senior appearances for Zinedine Zidane’s side, all of which came in the 2018-19 campaign.

Last season Reguilon was on loan at Sevilla and he produced some excellent performances as he helped his temporary side to win the Europa League.

Earlier this month Reguilon made his senior debut for Spain in the Nations League clash against Ukraine. 

In addition to Reguilon and Bale, Tottenham have also signed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty in this transfer window.
