Gareth Bale has completed his incredible loan move to Tottenham - seven years after leaving the club. The Real Madrid outcast, 31, was all smiles as he arrived in London to finalise the deal on Friday. Tottenham, who have forked out £12million in wages and loan fees to secure the deal, simply Tweeted: “Bale. Is. Back. Welcome home Gareth Bale.” Manchester United also wanted to bring him back to the Premier League but so slower to Tottenham.

The 31-year-old completed his medical screening in Spain after saying goodbye to his Madrid teammates. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy made a rare appearance at the club’s training ground on Friday as they looked to finalise the deal. Real Madrid have been keen to get the Welshman’s huge £650,000-per-week wages off the book. 

It is understood that Spurs will pay 50 per cent - with Real covering the other half. Bale’s incredible wage packet will see him pocket more £125,000 than captain Harry Kane. Mourinho has hinted Bale could be the final piece of the puzzle that needs at Tottenham. When asked about the move earlier this month, he said: “A squad is a puzzle and when a new signing completes the puzzle it’s a great feeling for the team.”

The Champions League winner will take the No 9 shirt. Left-back Sergio Reguilon was also unveiled on Saturday evening as the club completed a double deal with Los Blancos. Bale said: “It’s nice to be back! “It’s such a special club to me, it’s where I made my name. What an amazing club and amazing fans - it’s incredible to be back. “Hopefully I can get underway, help the team and hopefully win trophies. 

“I always thought when I did leave that one day I would love to come back.  “The opportunity now has arisen and I feel like it’s a good fit, it’s a good time for me. “I’m hungry, I’m motivated, I want to do well for the team and can’t wait to get started.” 

It's nice to be back in an environment where I'm loved. When you feel that love you can play your best football. "Hopefully now we can kick on this season and try and win a trophy if not two. I'm a mature person who has grown up. I understand my game more and it's evolved. I still have my pace. "I've enjoyed it [at Madrid], I loved living there. 

Welshman Bale left Spurs to join Real Madrid in a then-world record 85m move in 2013. He scored 105 goals and made 68 assists for the Spanish giants in just 251 games. But he’s back for his second spell in North London after being frozen out of Madrid’s squad. Bale posed for selfies with fans and smiled for the cameras as he arrived at Luton Airport on Friday.

Gareth Bale is confident Jose Mourinho will be the man to bring Tottenham fans the trophies they are so desperate for. The Wales international revealed Mourinho was a pivotal reason for his high-profile return to Spurs this week after spending seven years with Real Madrid and winning four Champions League medals. 

Bale has already held tactical talks with Mourinho to paid tribute to his new manager, who also has a Real Madrid past. "He has spoken to me about a few positions that he would like me to play and obviously I'm happy with that," Bale said. "He was a big reason for me coming back here, he is a household name and a winner. He is the perfect fit for Tottenham. "We need to win trophies and he knows how to do that better than anyone. I know every Tottenham fan is desperate for a trophy and we will be trying as hard as possible in every competition to do that."

Bale holds no hard feelings about his time in Madrid as he bids to get fit in the next month, with a possible second debut to come against West Ham on October 17 once he has worked his way back from knee injury. "I need to get fully fit," added the 31-year-old. "I haven't trained since the Wales camp so I need to get on the training pitch. Hopefully I can hit the ground running in my first game, whenever that may be. "It feels great to be back. I've had a warm welcome. 

There's ups and downs at every club, wherever you go. The highs have been incredibly high and the lows have been very low. "I enjoyed achieving what we achieved but it's time for the next chapter in my career."
