Harry Redknapp believes Gareth Bale could lead Tottenham back into the Champions League places if the club complete a sensational transfer this summer.
The Real Madrid star has been linked with a move back to his former side and Redknapp, who had four years with Welshman in north London, thinks it would be a great deal for both parties.
Bale left Spurs for La Liga in a record £86million deal in 2013, a year after Redknapp departed White Hart Lane.

The 31-year-old has gone on to win 13 trophies in seven years but has fallen out of favour with Real boss Zinedine Zidane and is seeking a way out. His agent Jonathan Barnett told BBC Wales that 'Gareth still loves Spurs... It's where he wants to be.'
And Redknapp thinks the winger would light up the Premier League once again and could take Tottenham back into contention for the top four.
'He'd be great for Tottenham and great for the Premier League,' Redknapp told Sky Sports News.
