Real Madrid offer Tottenham €60m + Di Maria + Coentrao for Gareth Bale, Levy wants €120m [AS]
Tottenham fans won’t be happy this Sunday as momentum appears to be building pointing Gareth Bale to a world record move to Real Madrid before the new season kicks off.
While the Mail on Sunday reports that “Gareth Bale cannot see himself wearing the white of Tottenham again”, over in Spain AS claim to have the skinny on the latest transfer negotiations between Los Blancos and the Lilywhites.
According to journalist Sergio Gomez, Real Madrid are offering Tottenham €60m in cash plus Angel Di Maria (valued at €30m) and Fabio Coentrao (valued at €20m) for Gareth Bale. The deal, according to Real Madrid, is worth €110m to Tottenham.
The news outlet then say that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy have rebutted that offer demanding €120m for Bale: which more than anything highlights that Tottenham do accept that their Welsh superstar does have a price at which they are willing to let him go.
At this point it is worth remembering what Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett said to Spanish TV at the start of the summer.
Barnett said the following:
If someone like Mr Perez was interested in Bale it would be a great honour. And we would listen. We’re not speaking to anybody… Bale is better than Neymar. He’s proved himself better than Neymar. He’s proved himself in the best legue in the world.
I would hope that any club who wants him, wants him not because they lost Neymar. I would think he’d have to be their first choice… Listen, it’s crazy, but whatever Neymar cost, Gareth Bale is worth more.
