Gareth Bale could be set for a sensational return to Tottenham Hotspur, with Real Madrid ready to offload the Welsh winger.

According to don balon, The Spanish giants are growing increasingly frustrated with Bale's constant grappling with injury to the extent that they are prepared to offload him next summer.

The Wales international is currently out of action with yet another calf injury - the eighth he has suffered since moving to the Bernabeu in 2013.

He missed the majority of last season due to calf and ankle problems, and his most recent complaint forced him to miss Wales' crucial World Cup qualifier with the Republic of Ireland, as well as a reunion with Spurs at the Bernabeu on Tuesday.
