Former Tottenham player Chris Waddle thinks the Spurs “shouldn’t break the bank for Gareth Bale”.

The Wales international continues to be in at the center of criticism at Real Madrid. Recently Tottenham were in talks for re-signing the former Spurs player. However, Zinedine Zidane’s side set a high price ta for the 30-year-old.

Waddle thinks Bale would be a welcome addition back at Tottenham only if the Catalan giants consider a right price for him.

He said: “Gareth Bale might be a short-term solution to Mourinho’s goalscoring woes but I wouldn’t be breaking the bank to bring him back. I’m a big fan of Bale, I think he’s a wonderful player and Spurs fans would welcome him with open arms. But you’ve got to ask yourself what would you be getting for a vast sum of money. Is he on the pitch enough to make the investment worthwhile? You look at Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and they are on the pitch for 90 per cent or more of the season. Bale? Probably nearer 50 and he’s not getting any younger. If it was the right deal at the right price then without a shadow of a doubt you’d snap him up. But if you were expecting to have to fork out £300k a week or more then I’d be looking elsewhere.”
