Even though it could be argued that due to it only being a loan with no option or obligation to buy that he will be returning to Real Madrid, it would be a very surprising and shocking climax if Bale ever wears a Real Madrid shirt again.
Spurs confirmed the injury, saying "We now anticipate that he will be match fit after October's worldwide break".
Spurs have been in discussions to sign 31-year-old Bale seven years after he left for a then world-record fee and it appears all financial hurdles have been overcome.
Zinedine Zidane needs to "look in the mirror and ask himself: Did I make a mistake?" when it comes to Gareth Bale, says Graham Roberts, with a Tottenham legend looking forward to see a familiar face back in north London.
Number 9 at Tottenham is now vacant, with Harry Winks holding the number 8 shirt and Harry Kane the number 10 shirt.

Real Madrid have confirmed Gareth Bale's return to Tottenham Hotspur, publishing a 50-word statement on their website.
Jose Mourinho's men are badly in need of a lift after failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in five years last season and starting their new Premier League campaign with a dispiriting 1-0 home defeat to Everton.
He said: 'It's nice to be back, where I made my name. All of the players who play for Madrid are aware of the club they're joining and I think that he's proved his ability. It happened to James, who went to Bayern when he was wearing the Madrid 10 and when he returned he had to play with the 16 because Modric had kept his number in his absence. "What an wonderful club, awesome fans, and it's just incredible to be back".
Bale is expected to be part of a double swoop on Madrid as Tottenham are also on the verge of signing left-back Sergio Reguilon on a permanent deal.
Reguilon enjoyed an excellent season for Madrid in 2018-19 but Zidane sent the 23-year-old on loan last year to Sevilla, where he helped the club win the Europa League.
By every tangible metric, the Welshman's stay in the Spanish capital was a success; four Champions Leagues, two La Liga titles and one Copa del Rey, as well as multiple UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup wins.
