Gareth Bale arrived at Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground on Friday afternoon to complete a return to his former club from Real Madrid.

The 31-year-old Wales international, who is expected to rejoin Spurs on loan, was pictured arriving into Luton Airport before travelling to Enfield, North London.

Bale left Tottenham for Real Madrid in 2013 for £85 million — a record fee at the time — but he has struggled for game time in recent seasons under manager Zinedine Zidane.

Bale has scored more than 100 goals for the La Liga giants and has won four UEFA Champions League. His contract at Madrid runs until 2022.
