Tottenham were ready to pay the former star about ড 20 million in wages and loan fees to bring him back to the club.

Tottenham are close to agreeing a deal to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.
Bell is waiting in Madrid for the green light to fly in London to sign the contract when he sees the club return to the club he set in the £ 86 million transfer seven years ago.
Lawyers in Spain and England are working to sign a deal that would put Bell back in the season as a Spurs player on a season-long loan deal. Spurs has agreed to pay about 20 20 million in wages and loan fees.
Bell is keen to play for a club where he believes he will be respected and appreciated again.
Although he has played for Wales twice this month, he is not fully fit and will hopefully take a month to get his best back.
A source close to the talks said progress was slow at the moment but there was an expectation from all sides that an agreement would be reached. If asked if Bell will soon become a Spurs player, the source said: “Of course.”
Real Madrid have agreed to give him a loan to pay him books 500,000 a week for his books, and Tottenham have made every effort to sign him this week.
In addition to freezing Zinedine Zidane, Bell had a tough relationship with the Spanish media and Real fans, and he is looking forward to a fresh start at Spurs.
Manchester United considered Jaden Sancho as a back-up option for him, but they have made several offers to sign him since he was in Southampton 13 years ago, but they have not made any offer.
Where will the bell fit in the spray?
Bell has enjoyed most of his success on the right wing and reminded the infamous White Heart Lane Harry Redknapp that he ‘plays on the left’, where the 31-year-old forward would expect him to return to the Premier League.
In the autumn of his career, those explosions of downward motion are more likely to occur, but Bell will certainly be able to cut inside and find enough space to shoot shots from a distance with his desired left foot – which he does better than almost anyone else.
In the final season of his first spell with the Spurs, Bell scored fewer than nine Premier League goals from outside the box – the same number as the next two best players of the season combined. In fact, since no one still matches this list.
The sense of urgency is even more intense for Tottenham’s Jose Mourinho. Lucas Moura is now a popular figure due to his Champions League semi-final heroism in Amsterdam, but there are now question marks over his results from the right side and Bal’s acquisition will represent a significant upgrade.
Suggestions are that the Spurs will still be interested in signing Bell alongside the striker, but there is also an interesting possibility for Welshman Harry Kane to fill in. The England captain should face a lay-off that would have hampered his performance last season.
Bell will have a stronger presence than the alternatives, and if his mobility deteriorates in the coming years, it is tempting to think that he can transform the team’s former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo into a center-forward role.
Analysis: ‘Now it’s time for Ball to leave Madrid’
Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon told Sky Sports: “If he wants to go to Tottenham, I’m sure he will go there. I have no personal knowledge of his intentions and the terms of the contract, but it clearly looks like Tottenham.
“Sometimes when the salary of a player who wants to leave Real Madrid is too high, we have shared some of that salary but now I don’t know if it will happen.
“He came here as Tottenham’s MVP, but it remains to be seen whether he will be able to regain his time as a good player. It is clear that Zinedine Zidane does not depend on him. Now is the time to end this situation and for me to do it. .
“I think it will [a permanent deal]. With two years left on his contract so if he leaves this season I think he will stay at the new club for the rest of his career. He has three or four more years at good levels, so if he goes to Tottenham he will end his career there.
“I don’t know if Daley Oli will be part of this deal, but I don’t think Tottenham will want to let him go because he’s a very good player. Any big team will want to keep him by their side.”
