Tottenham Hotspur have officially announced the signing of Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale on a one-year loan deal.
The Welshman has endured a tough few seasons under manager Zinedine Zidane, which ultimately saw him being frozen out of the LaLiga side, and he recently revealed that a move away from Madrid had previously been blocked by the club.
The 31-year-old left White Hart Lane back in 2013 in a blockbuster transfer to bolster the Real frontline, and despite some immense success, Bale's fairy tale quickly turned into a nightmare.
The deadly winger was linked with a potential move to Manchester United as an alternative to Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho, but Spurs have pounced to lure their former star back to London.
In total, Bale made 251 appearances across all competitions for the Spanish giants, scoring 105 goals and providing 68 assists along the way.
His list of honours with Real is a staggering one, having been a part of four UEFA Champions League wins, while also lifting two league titles, the Copa del Rey, the Spanish Super Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and three FIFA Club World Cups.
