Barcelona legend Rivaldo says he’d be delighted to see Gareth Bale complete a return to Tottenham Hotspur.
The Welshman is on the brink of sealing a return to the club he left for a record fee back in 2013, and Rivaldo believes Spurs can help the winger recapture his best form once again.
Speaking to Betfair, the Barcelona legend said: “It will be great news if Gareth Bale signs for Tottenham.
“He has not been playing regularly for a long time and it will be great for him to get the chance at his former club which he knows well and where he played some of his best football ever.”
The move comes after a tricky start to the season for Spurs, who lost to Everton on the opening day of the new season, with questions already growing as to whether they are capable of challenging the Premier League’s elite.
