It is set to be a busy day for Tottenham, with the club closing in on a sensational double swoop for Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon while starting their Europa League campaign.
Real Madrid forward Bale is edging closer to agreeing a deal to return to north London, according to the forward’s agent, with Daniel Levy leading the negotiations.
Meanwhile, Bale’s Real team-mate Reguilon is on the verge of a £25million switch to Spurs which could be announced today – though the deal has a number of clauses.
Aside from the excitement of the summer transfer window, Jose Mourinho’s side will have to navigate the first of two qualifying rounds if they want to compete in the Europa League group stages.
Spurs are in Bulgaria today for a second-round qualifying test against Lokomotiv Plovdiv (5pm BST), and they need a win after starting the season with a Premier League defeat to Everton.
