Gareth Bale may soon be on his way to Real Madrid, if reports in today’s Spanish press are to be believed. The Welsh man has been in excellent form in recent weeks, and appears to have attracted the attention of the club.
According to an article in El Confidencial, Bale has make it clear that he wants to move to Madrid. The paper goes even further and claims that the players agent, Jonathan Barrett, has already held several meetings with the Real board. However, the tabloid have given little concrete evidence to back up these claims , and may just want to be first to break news of what remains a highly possible transfer. Timing may remain an issue however, as Bale has a long term contract with Tottenham and it would take serious money for the club to allow their star man to leave.
While £45m has been mentioned in today’s article, it may take more than this for Spurs to release the player from the remaining three years of his current deal. For now Real may just have to sit back and watch, as the Welsh wizard continues to dazzle the Premiership.
