Gareth Bale could return to Tottenham in mid-May to take part in Ledley King's testimonial match.

With the Champions League final set to take place on the May 24, the Welsh Galactico is unlikely to be given permission to participate in the game, for fear that he picks up an injury in the process.

Nevertheless, Standard Sport claims that Bale is keen to support his former captain, who is being honoured for his services to Spurs following his retirement in 2012.

King's testimonial is on May 12, a day after the Premier League season concludes. Whereas Real Madrid's season finishes on May 18. With Real Madrid still in contention to win La Liga, albeit with the destination of the title out of their hands, and the European showpiece on the horizon, it may be that the club take the decision to not even allow Bale to travel to White Hart Lane.

Continuing with the Real Madrid theme, former Spurs fan-favourite Rafael van der Vaart and Luka Modric have reportedly been invited to the ceremony by King, but their availability has yet to be determined.
