Ahead of the start of his second spell at Tottenham, Gareth Bale got the most outrageous prediction from Harry Redknapp. 

Harry Redknapp is one of the few managers who know Gareth Bale quite well, he is the one who changed his position before anybody else did. After failing to find happiness at Real Madrid during his last two seasons, everybody wonders if the Welshman can reach his top-level again.

Jose Mourinho fully backs his player to become important for the Spurs, but Redknapp took his opinion a little further. Contrary to what others might believe about Bale’s veteran status. Harry is convinced that the new arrival can help Tottenham win the Premier League.

We all get such blind faith from Redknapp to ‘Gary’. However, we’ll leave the statements for you to decide. Is it too soon to start talking about winning titles even before Gareth Bale makes his debut against West Ham United? 

Bale hits the ground running at Spurs. 

One of the biggest reasons we can see Harry Redknapp so excited can be found inside Tottenham’s training grounds. The Welshman hasn’t struggled one bit to integrate himself with the rest of his teammates. He’s always chatting with everybody and we can always see a smile on his face. This is a very different player to the one who left Real Madrid as an alleged flop. 

“Gareth coming back will make such a difference to Tottenham, he’s an amazing player.” Redknapp told BBC Sport Wales.

“With [Harry] Kane, Son [Heung-min] and Bale that’s an amazing front free that could scare any team. I honestly think they’ve got a squad there capable of having a real chance to win the Premier League.

“You’ve got to fancy Liverpool and you’d have to fancy Manchester City, they would have to be favorites. But if anybody else is going to challenge them this year I think it’s Tottenham.”
