Tottenham braced for £43m bid

Gareth BaleHe may have been linked with signing a new deal at fifth placed Tottenham Hotspur but now it is claimed here at the Football Transfer Tavern by Caught Offside that Gareth Bale is set to be subject of a huge bid from Real Madrid.

The player had been set to pen a new deal at Spurs worth around £150,000 per week and given that he has been one of the best if not the very best player in England this season, it is no shock that Daniel Levy wants to tie the former Southampton man down to the club for at least one more season before selling for mega bucks in the summer of 2014.

Now however, fresh doubt has been cast on the player’s future in the Premier League after Real Madrid were claimed to be preparing a bid of £43 million plus mega wages and huge endorsement deals for the Welshman. The new contract that Spurs are trying to get him to sign would mean that a release clause of at least £50 million is placed there to prevent the forward from leaving for less than that and Real are mindful of this issue.

For now, Spurs value the player at significantly more than the £43 million the Spanish giants are looking to pay and are hopeful that Bale will sign a new deal to keep him for at least 12 more months as Andre Villas-Boas’ side look to finally finish above Arsenal next season.

Would Spurs consider parting with Bale for £43 million? Rate this rumour below.

    ‘One of the best in England’? Yeah, I hear Mt Everest is one of the biggest mountains in Nepal.

    He still needs to develop his game to be worth that much. He’s got a stunning left foot but is still one dimensional and predictable. He has failed to distribute the ball all season even when his team mates are standing in space. How often have we seen the ball go off target as he goes for glory again and again? The Premier league opposition doesn’t measure up and neither does Bale just yet. I think he will stay at Spurs near his family and young baby rather than try to get a game in Madrid.

    Its not the same as matt le tissier at southampton is it? Journalists are acting as though bale has no chance of success staying at spurs. Runners up to united in the final in 2010 with spurs, quarter finals of the champions league again with spurs and this year we should have thumped basel after eliminating inter, lyon two big teams along the way. World class training facilities and a new stadium as well as players such as hugo Lloris, Sandro, Kaboul, jan vertonghen, Lennon and Dembele. He is at a great club with huge support and a glorious history.

    This is the lowest price so far, who quoted it, it appears no-one.
    All the other sites claim he is now staying. Conjecture at best from a journo with no more than a nodding acquaintance with the truth.

    All the other news (apart from one) have ”quotes” from Bale suggesting he is staying, your story is just a fairy tale of what some lazy journo would like or thinks might happen. Plenty of room for improvement here.

    Micha so all he has going for him is a great left foot? Try watching a Spurs game now and again. As for £43m that is obviously what Real are viewing as a starting bid which they would expect to go higher, but there is absolutely no chance at all that Levy will sell Bale this summer.

    Rob, that is not what i said. I do watch most games and have just highlighted a couple of things I think he is deficient on. A couple of weeks ago he admitted himself in a TV interview that his right foot is not his strong point and is working on it. His ball distribution since moving in-field is not as good as it was. In Sunday’s game, the free-kick he missed in the second half was a predictable shot on goal but on that occasion there were two spurs players standing in space who would have had a better scoring opportunity than he did. He ignores the element of surprise and most defenders and goalies assume he’ll shoot at goal. This is not just the case from free-kicks and some of his team-mates (Dembele & Ade in particular towards the end of the season) denounce his greed. Open your eyes to the position of the whole team and you will see what I mean. If the focus is just on Bale with the ball and not the positions of the attacking players, you won’t see it. He is a brilliant player but still developing his skills. Can’t wait to see how he plays after the summer.
