Gareth Bale beams as he lands in Luton to seal Tottenham transfer return and ends his Real Madrid hell

GARETH BALE beamed as he landed at Luton Airport to seal his sensational return to Tottenham and end his Real Madrid hell.

The golf-mad Wales star, 31, had been frozen out at the Bernabeu by Zinedine Zidane.





But now he has arrived back in the UK on a private jet to complete his season-long loan move to his former club.

Bale quit Spurs for Los Blancos a then-world-record £86million move in 2013.

Seven years later, Bale is preparing to return to North London.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was spotted arriving at the club's Enfield training base at the crack of dawn on Friday, seemingly to conclude the deal.

Levy looked visibly nervous as he chewed on his fingernails as Bale flew over France, across The Channel and back onto home soil.

Both Tottenham and Manchester United had been keen on brining Bale home.

But the Londoners appear to have won the race.

Spurs opted against an £18.5million move and instead settled for a season-long loan deal, with the Premier League side set to pay just 50 per cent of his wages.



However, that still means Tottenham must fork out a club-high £325,000 a week for Bale – ahead of £200,000 per week striker Harry Kane.

The Welshman will immediately be stuck on a personalised, intensive training regime.

Having been frozen out by Zinedine Zidane for so long, Spurs have some fears over his fitness with just 215 minutes of action for club and country since February.

It's thought Bale could take as long as FOUR WEEKS to get up to speed and match-readiness.

With a gruelling schedule ahead, it may be tough for Mourinho to resist picking Bale, with Premier League action along with domestic AND European cup games ahead.

With Bale arriving – along with full-back Sergio Reguilon, seemingly on the way – Mourinho has now suggested he has too many players.

Some stars may be shown the exit this summer, with Dele Alli a shock target for Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan, according to reports.
