Gareth Bale reportedly linked with return to Tottenham to become highest earner

- Gareth Bale has been linked with a return to Premier League side Spurs
- Bale who has won four Champions League title at Real Madrid has fallen out of favor
- The Welshman spent six years at Tottenham before moving to Real Madrid in 2013
Gareth Bale is reportedly on the verge of making a return to Premier League side Tottenham and he is also set to become the club's highest paid player this term under Jose Mourinho.
The Welshman has fallen out of favor at Real Madrid as manager Zinedine Zidane is preparing for the 2020/21 Spanish La Liga season without the winger.
Last term, Gareth Bale missed the last six games Real Madrid played in which the player was even seen playing golf after being frozen out of the team.
Tottenham started their campaign in the 2020/21 Premier League season on a disappointing note losing against Everton which made Jose Mourinho angry.
The Portuguese is now trying to bolster his squad by bringing Gareth Bale back to the team before the end of the ongoing transfer market.
According to the report on Daily Mail, if Tottenham should pay just £250,000-a-week of Bale's salary, he would still leapfrog Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele in their top earners list.
England international Harry Kane is currently the highest paid player at Tottenham thanks to the new contract he signed at the club in June 2018.
Tanguy Ndombele is the next biggest earner at the club in £160,000-a-week followed by South Korean forward Son Heung-min on £140,000-a-week.
The Englishman was subbed off at half time and Agbonlahor claims he got the information from a likely source that both player and manager are not on good terms.
After the defeat to Carlo Ancelotti's side, Mourinho said in a post-match interview that he subbed Alli off because he wanted more creativity in the midfield, calling his team lazy.
The Portuguese boss also said he wanted to sign another striker to help reduce the pressure on Harry Kane.
Agbonlahor who played over 300 times for Villa and won three England caps said he believes Spurs need another frontman.
