Just when you thought this summer window wasn’t crazier enough!
Spanish newspaper Marca have reported that Tottenham Hotspur want as much as €145 million for Gareth Bale. (Almost €50 Million higher that what Real Madrid payed for Ronaldo?) If true, Spurs clearly want Bale to stay at the Lane. But you can never overlook Perez and Madrid’s craziness, they can still lure them into selling the Welsh star.
Here is the picture of Marca’s front page.
The same Marca, reported last week that Bale has accused Tottenham chief Daniel Levy over false promises after he snubbed Real Madrid’s initial offer. He was quoted as saying:
“You made me a promise. You promised me if we didn’t qualify for the Champions League and a good offer turned up you’d listen to it.
“Well that offer has arrived and I want to play for Real Madrid. So keep your word and negotiate.”
The double PFA winner, had an excellent relationship with Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas, and the fans as he single-handedly took them to the brink of Champions league qualification. But when a club like Real Madrid come calling, Bale will have to choose between two very difficult choices.
