Europeans want Tottenham ace at any cost

Gareth BaleWe at Football Transfer Tavern would love to see Gareth Bale stay in the Premier League next season but Real Madrid have other ideas according to the Daily Mail.

Real Madrid scout and legend Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that the European big boys will be willing to pay whatever Tottenham Hotspur demand for Welsh winger Gareth Bale as he is deemed worth a lavish fee.

Spurs could demand as much as £60 million for their main man this summer and Zidane believes that Real Madrid would see the deal as a long-term investment in success, just as they did when they signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.

“After the season he has just had – and still being so young of course Gareth Bale is going to be one of the most expensive players in the world if he decides to move,” Zidane said.

“Tottenham could command £40million, £50m, maybe even £60m for him. It is a lot of money – but there are maybe three or four teams in the world that can pay that sort of transfer fee – and it wont put them off.

“They would be getting the best player in Europe this season – and he is at an age where he can still play at the top for another ten years.

“What I like about him is that he has this electric pace – but also a big footballing brain to go with it. That is very rare.

“A player like Bale can be the difference between a big club winning the league or Champions League.”

Bale continues to score goals in the English top flight and even managed a scruffy opportunist finish against Wigan Athletic at the weekend when the Welshman capitalised on a Joel error. Of course, the PFA Player of The Year has scored scome spectacular strikes this season against Norwich City, West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United notably.

If Bale does go to Spain, how much will Real Madrid pay for his services? Submit your figures below.
