Gareth Bale has been urged to put any financial issues to one side and return to Tottenham for sporting reasons, with club legend Graham Roberts asking: How much money does he need?

It has been suggested that the 30-year-old could be offered the opportunity to retrace his steps to north London.

Murmurs of a Premier League return for the Wales international have bubbled away for some time now.

With Bale continuing to attract criticism for his form, fitness and apparent lack of commitment to the Madrid cause, many feel a change of scenery would do him good.

Various landing spots have been mooted in recent transfer windows, from Manchester United to China.

Tottenham, though, hold a special place in Bale’s heart having been the club that provided the springboard for him to hit superstardom.

Jose Mourinho has stopped short of ruling out a raid on his former employers at Santiago Bernabeu and several familiar faces with strong ties to Spurs have called for a prodigal son to head back to his spiritual home.

Ex-Tottenham defender Roberts, who spent six memorable years in north London during his playing days, has added his voice to those calling on Bale to end his Spanish adventure.

He has posted on Twitter: “How much money does Bale need?

“If he comes back the fans love him and he will enjoy playing again. Come on Gareth, come home.”
