Tottenham could bring Gareth Bale back to the club

- Zinedine Zidane faces another crossroads in his handling of Gareth Bale, who appeared to mock Real Madrid after Wales' 2-0 victory over Hungary. "Golf. Madrid. In that order" after helping his country to qualify for Euro 2020.

Bale has been criticized in Spain for prioritizing worldwide football, and even a round of golf, over the club's tasks, since he hasn't played for Real since October 5. Again, the former Tottenham player has to regain Zidane and the supporters' trust.

The Spanish giants are yet to officially reply to the Welshman but they are unlikely to offer an olive branch, particularly after just last week Bale admitted he preferred playing for Wales.

While football talk show presenter Josep Pedrerol implored current Real president Florentino Perez to "kick Bale out", some fans believe the flag stunt was a ploy for Bale to force his way out of the club. People who really feel Real Madrid's colours have to be with Bale.

During Wales' celebration after qualifying for the 2020 European Championship, Bale was spotted holding a flag that stated "Wales". It is clear to everyone how unhappy he is at Real Madrid and it would not surprise me in the slightest if Tottenham tried to manufacture a deal to bring Bale home in January. The sources further added that there is "anger, but also indifference" among club members over Bale's actions.

Zidane has now included Bale in his squad for Saturday's clash with Sociedad, who would move above Madrid with a win at the Santiago Bernabeu.

With Wales, I'm speaking my own language and feel more comfortable. I will always be behind my players.

"But it still doesn't change what I give on the pitch". Real Sociedad travel to Madrid with just two points less than Saturday's rivals and would be joint leaders but if they hadn't dropped two points in their home match against bottom of the table Leganes before the worldwide break.

Madrid return to action after the worldwide break sitting second in LaLiga, behind leaders Barcelona only on goal difference. Marco Asensio is a long-term absentee after rupturing his cruciate ligament.
