Tottenham hero backs Gareth Bale transfer and urges Harry Kane to stay

Tottenham legend Micky Hazard says he'd love to see Gareth Bale playing alongside Harry Kane.

The Wales international left the Premier League in 2013 after Real Madrid paid £85million for his services.

Since moving to the Bernabeu, Bale has won La Liga twice and the Champions League four times.

However, his relationship with Real boss Zinedine Zidane is strained and the 31-year-old has made just 20 appearances in all competitions this season.

A departure now looks on the cards and Hazard is keen to see the forward back in north London.

"Would I want to see him back in a Tottenham shirt? 100 per cent, without a shadow of a doubt," he said.

"Anyone who says Bale wouldn't offer Tottenham anything is lying.

"I sincerely hope he gets his career back on track because he's such a special talent.

"I have no doubt he still loves the game, but unfortunately his usefulness to Wales is now also impacted by the fact he isn't playing.

"Usually I'm a great believer in top players not coming back. But in Bale's case I'm not necessarily against it.

"I just think sometimes it's hard to achieve the same levels of performance. You don't want that legacy to be undermined.

"But whether he comes back or not, I want this resolved. The stalemate at Real is a tragedy."

A Premier League return would see Bale link up with Tottenham talisman Harry Kane, who has previously been in Zidane's sights.

But Hazard, who was an FA Cup and UEFA Cup winner with Spurs, says Kane won't turn his back on his boyhood club anytime soon.

"Whatever he does, he's always going to be a legend. But imagine if he went on to fulfil his own dream and beat Jimmy Greaves' record. He'd become a God-like figure," he added.

"He's stated before that if he's not winning trophies he'll have a rethink.

"But I'm very confident with Kane because he's a top man who has been brought up very well. He's loyal and honest.

"I'd expect him to be here for at least another two years. After that, what Spurs win will dictate his long-term plans.

"He could go to any club at world, but at the moment he's still a Tottenham boy.

"One of the hardest decisions you'll ever make is leaving a club where you've risen up through the youth system. It gets into your heart and soul."
