Football fans here in the Transfer Tavern are following the latest news with intent.
Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Chelsea fans in particular.
This is because this trio of Premier League clubs have been put on alert by Real Madrid’s apparent willingness to sell Gareth Bale, according to a report by The Mirror.
After growing frustrated by his injury problems, Real Madrid are ready to cash in on the Wales international with Man United, Chelsea and Spurs all ready to make a move.
The Spanish giants have slapped an £85m price tag on Gareth Bale’s head as they look to recoup most of the transfer fee they paid Spurs.
The 28-year-old is likely to miss the rest of the calendar year after picking up a calf injury but this is unlikely to deter the top Premier League sides when the transfer window re-opens in the new year.
Since moving to Real Madrid four and a half years ago, Bale has won three Champions League titles, the La Liga on one occasion and he has also helped his side lift the Copa Del Rey.
Our landlord admits that he would love to see Bale back in the Premier League this season.
