Real Madrid’s interest in Gareth Bale has been sparked alight yet again as there have been rumours that they are prepared to put in a world record breaking bid of around £85 million for the Welshman. After the original outburst from Real Madrid about wanting Gareth Bale, they died down a little bit as it was believed that Bale was under-going negotiations to do with renewing his contract at Tottenham Hotspur. However, Gareth Bale and Real Madrid are capturing the headlines once more as the Welshman wants to talk with one of the biggest clubs in the world.
Tottenham Hotspur want the Welsh wizard to stay for at least one more season in order to try and help them get into Champions League places, despite him having 3 years on his contract remaining. Nevertheless, if Real Madrid’s manager, Carlo Ancelotti, does put in a bid worth around £85 million or even rumoured at £100 million, then surely that would be too expensive for Spurs to reject. Gareth Bale is in such high demand as he won both the PFA Young Player and Player of the Year, and single-handedly won Spurs matches with some wonderful and unforgettable individual goals.
Gareth Bale has been in London whilst Tottenham have been playing in the Barclays Asia Trophy due to a muscle problem. However the more grabbing news is that Spurs’ chairman, Daniel Levy, has abandoned his family holiday in Florida, USA to go to London to talk to Bale about the Real Madrid situation. Levy has revealed that he will do his best to keep Bale at the club, but the player who scored 26 goals in all competitions last year demanded to know whether there has been contact from the Spanish giants.
Gareth Bale has not yet handed in a transfer request, but with arguably the world’s biggest club interested in him, if they make an official massive bid, will he want to move? He has been with Spurs since 2007 and has a good relationship with his fellow players and staff, the fans and especially the current manager, Andre Villa-Boas. It is not sure whether Bale will play for Spurs in this weekend’s friendly against Monaco due to his muscle problem, but Ancelotti is already making plans for the Welshman.
In Real Madrid’s friendly against PSG on Saturday, Carlo Ancelotti moved Cristiano Ronaldo from the wing, which is Bale’s position, to a more central role in attempt to see whether the Portuguese could play well in that role. This would suggest that Real Madrid have their sights set on Bale and keeping Ronaldo, which would be a lethal partnership, one to rival that of Lionel Messi, Andre Iniesta and Xavi. On the other hand, there have also been fans claiming that if Real Madrid do capture Bale, there could be motives to let Cristiano Ronaldo return to his former club, Manchester United.
If Real Madrid does make a written and official bid of £85 million, which looks likely, it would break the previous record held by Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009 when the same team paid £80 million for the Portuguese. Currently, the second highest transfer fee is the £56.5 million Barcelona paid for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Spurs have made a £23 million offer for the Real Madrid striker Roberto Soldado, so could he be a part of the deal? Will Real Madrid make an official offer and if so, will the Welshman bail Spurs for the Spanish giants?
