Marca, who have had Bale's likely move to Real Madrid on their front page almost every day this summer, point to the change as a surefire indication that a deal for the Welsh winger is imminent.
Unfortunately, their argument is undermined slightly by the fact that the background image also showed American striker Clint Dempsey, who has just completed a transfer to Seattle.
So we've got a lot of sympathy for Spurs here. The picture needed changing urgently to get rid of Dempsey, so what could they do? Doing a new picture of Bale while it's a matter of public record that the two clubs are in talks about a potential transfer would be ludicrous.
Then again, pointing out that Marca are being ludicrous over the Bale transfer is like pointing out that Sky Sports News presenter Jim White gets excited about transfer deadline day.
