Michael Dawson insists Tottenham-linked Gareth Bale would improve Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur Unveil New Signing Gareth Bale

But ahead of his side's Europa League second-round qualifying clash with Lokomotiv Plovdiv, Mourinho said: "Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid player and I don't comment on players from other clubs".

Have something to tell us about this article? "I think it will be completed this week".

There has been speculation that the England global could be included as part of the deal taking Bale back to north London. The deal will cost Tottenham less than £15m.

The Cardiff-born player swapped the north London club for the Spanish capital in 2013 for a then world-record fee, winning four Champions Leagues during a medal-laden stint at the Bernabeu.

But despite some dazzling moments, his early years in Spain were disrupted by injuries while his role has been significantly reduced in recent seasons under Zinedine Zidane.

He did not always help himself though, from dancing with a fan's banner which celebrated his love for Wales and golf over Madrid a year ago, to looking bored and lethargic as he sat on the substitutes' bench for the final matches of last season.

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has insisted that he tried to sign winger, Gareth Bale, for Real Madrid before the Welsh worldwide made the switch from Spurs.

Bale has undergone a medical in Madrid and is now on his way to London alongside Real Madrid team-mate Sergio Reguilon, who will also join Tottenham. "It's not a secret, even Gareth knows that".

The 23-year-old named the best left-back in La Liga for his performances last season while on loan at Sevilla.
