MADRID: Gareth Bale completed his return to Tottenham Hotspur on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid, Spurs announced.
However, the Wales attacker will not be fit to make his second debut for the club until late October due to an injury.
Zinedine Zidane earlier confirmed that Bale is in London to secure a return to Tottenham.
“I haven’t spoken to him,” Zidane told a press conference, ahead of Real Madrid’s first La Liga game against Real Sociedad on Sunday.
“What he’s done here cannot be disputed. He has won many things here and he has shown his qualities. Now let’s see what will happen.”
“There are negotiations,” Zidane continued.
“He’s there in London. I’m not going to pit us against each other. I’ve not had any problems with Gareth, I know what he has done for this club.
“I can’t say more. We’ve not had any problems and what he’s done here, no one can argue with. If he moves, I wish him the best.”
