Bell and Mourinho have always had no relationship. Whether in Real Madrid or Manchester United, Mourinho threw an olive branch to Bell several times, but the two have never been able to form an intersection.
In many ways, Bale is Mourinho's ideal type of player. He has strong physical fitness, excellent athletic ability, superb skills and a winning temperament. In 2012, when Bell was still a rising star, Mourinho tried to bring him to the Bernabéu; in 2016 and 2017, Bell has grown into a top star, and the Red Devils coach Mourinho still misses him. The Welshman has repeatedly reported scandals with Manchester United.
By 2020, Mourinho finally ended the long wait, and the once Tottenham favorite, the tired bird, returns to the nest. It seems that the two have already bid farewell to the peak. In fact, there is no more perfect cooperation opportunity than this.
The problem before Bell is that he needs to come out of his semi-retired Real Madrid career. The Welshman has completely lost the trust of Zidane. In the two rounds of the Champions League 1/8 final match between Real Madrid and Manchester City last month, Bell and Ronaldo both fell out of the squad. When things have reached this point, Real Madrid's attitude towards Bell has been very clear. If you still want to save your career, Bell needs to say goodbye to Madrid.
According to people close to Bell, for the new owner, Bell tends to choose an environment that he is familiar with, and he needs a "feeling of being needed". It is best for friends and family to gather around, so there is only one place to stay— Tottenham.
According to Bell’s national teammates, Bell is extremely excited every time he reports on the national team, and the national team occupies a large proportion in his heart. In Real Madrid, Bell, who is depressed, regards the national team as his body and soul. Pinned.
Bell chose his old club, on the one hand because of his familiarity with the environment, and partly because of Mourinho. Mourinho has publicly expressed his appreciation for Bell on many occasions, which is also one of the main reasons Bell rejected Manchester United this summer.
However, according to people close to Bell, the Welshman did seriously consider the offer from Manchester United. Bell rejected Manchester United once before joining Tottenham in 2007; 6 years later, Bell chose the former between Real Madrid and Manchester United, so Bell is open to Old Trafford this time.
Things turned around soon after-Manchester United told Bell that they were chasing Sancho with all their strength, and the Welshman was just a spare tire for the latter. According to insiders, despite this, if Manchester United speed up the pace of introducing Bell, Bell still has a high probability of choosing the former between Manchester United and Tottenham, but Manchester United has always been on the sidelines, which prompted Bell to make up his mind to go home.
According to ESPN's news, Mourinho's friends at the Bernabeu tried to dissuade the Portuguese from introducing Bell. They were skeptical about whether Bell could return to the peak of two goals in the 2018 Champions League final. They believe that Bell has been ruined by injuries, but Mourinho has confidence in Bell, and he hopes that the Welshman will bring the current experience of the competition that Tottenham lacks.
On the one hand, Mourinho hopes that Bell can bring a stable offensive output to the team. On the other hand, the Portuguese hope that the arrival of the big winner Bell can boost the team's ambition and build the team's championship temperament. Bell himself also expressed his desire to help Tottenham win the heavyweight championship.
Although Bell’s contract with Real Madrid expires in two years, the 2020 European Cup will start next summer. Bell hopes to get enough playing time in the next six months, so he returns to the Premier League he is familiar with. It is a wise move. Last season, Bale had few chances at Real Madrid, and Ramsey only played 11 times for Juventus. Welsh coach Giggs has made it clear that he hopes the two will get a stable playing time in the league. Compared to staying at Real Madrid, joining Tottenham is undoubtedly a better choice.
Mourinho provided Bale with a platform, and Bale brought Mourinho the level of a first-line superstar and unparalleled experience in the competition. The two can be said to have their own needs. If the two cooperate happily, the team will become the ultimate beneficiary.
As for whether Mourinho and Bell met too late, only time can give us the answer.
