Jose Mourinho has claimed he wanted to sign Gareth Bale for Real Madrid, amid reports of a possible return to north London for the winger.

Following a slow, painful breakdown in the relationship between Bale and current Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, the Spanish champions are now very keen to offload him and are even prepared to subsidise half of his £600k weekly wage.

Mourinho sounds vert enthused by the ideal of bringing the 31-year-old back to White Hart Lane, claiming he tried to sign him during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I tried to sign him for Real Madrid which was not possible to do during my time there," Mourinho said in his Wednesday press conference.

Advertisement "There is no secret on that. Even Gareth knows that. But I'm not going to speak about him anymore because he is a Real Madrid player."

Bale ended up joining Real Madrid in 2013 for a whopping £85m fee, and got off to a great start in Spain, before injuries and a frosty relationship with Zidane saw him become the world's best paid substitute.

Tottenham are close to securing the signing of Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilón after Manchester United, previously the favourites to sign him, refused to accept a buy back clause as part of the deal.
