Tottenham Hotspur to make loan bid for Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale?

The Real Madrid midfielder, who is now on a two-year loan at German champions Bayern Munich, has frequently suggested that he is keen to return to his parent club this summer, but Zinedine Zidane's re-appointment as Los Blancos' coach looks to have made that an unlikely eventuality.

The Portuguese, who was dismissed as Manchester United manager in December 2018, has given Zidane his endorsement by backing the Frenchman to "show how good he is".

However, senior squad members, including skipper Sergio Ramos, objected the decision to bring back Mourinho.

But despite Zidane overseeing Madrid's successful era, it was another ex-head coach who was Perez's go-to guy, according to Calderon.

"No, of course I'm not disappointed", Mourinho said on El Chiringuito TV.

"I think it is ideal and fantastic", the former Chelsea boss said, even as he was quick to add he was never disappointed by Madrid's decision not to hire him.

Militao will be the first of many signings Real Madrid make this summer, after a dismal season reaffirmed the need for an overhaul on the squad that won three consecutive Champions League titles.

The same article states that Zidane has been given complete control of transfers at the 13-time Champions League winners following his return to Real Madrid.
