Welsh flyer, Gareth Bale has returned to training with Real Madrid, suggesting he might be available to face his old club in the Champions League.
Bale has been struggling with a calf injury of late and had been expected to miss the game at Wembley on Wednesday night.
He was absent from the Real squad which was beaten 2-1 by minnows Girona on Sunday and there have been reports that he could be out until mid-November.
However, his presence in a session on Monday has given rise to the idea that he could be on course for a quicker-than-expected return to full fitness.
Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has been keen to remain coy about the extent of Bale’s injury in recent weeks.
He has given little indication of when he believes the forward will return.
Two weeks ago, Zidane said: ‘I hope he will be with us soon. It would be great to have him in London, but I can’t take it for granted.’
The trip to Spurs would be a fitting stage for Bale to make his comeback, given his history with the north London club.
The Welshman spent six years at White Hart Lane between 2007 and 2013, following his £7million move from Southampton.
When he was eventually sold on to Real, he commanded a world-record fee.
Bale was accompanied in training by the rest of the Madrid squad as they look to respond to the embarrassing weekend defeat.
Real now lie eight points off La Liga leaders Barcelona and have experienced their worst start to a league season in half a decade following the loss to Girona.
