Metro have a big claim for us today here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they think that Tottenham’s Gareth Bale could well have moved off the radar of Real Madrid, well at least for the time being!
The Welshman has been linked non-stop with the Spanish giants this summer and a move certainly seemed on the cards.
Now it seems however that Florentino Perez has given up hope of landing the forward and is willing to move onto other targets and revisit the bid for Bale at a later date.
In news that will of course please Andre Villas-Boas and Spurs supporters everywhere, Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett claimed that: “There’s no offer from Madrid; they have to talk between themselves and we will see what happens.”
Of course Real Madrid will return to court the player next summer even if they do fail to land their top target this time around and no matter how shrewd Daniel Levy is, as one of our punters quips, it is doubtful that Bale will not link up with the Spanish Giants at some point in his career; especially as the speculation over Cristiano Ronaldo’s long-term future increases.
Tottenham fans. Are you more confident now at this point in the summer that Bale will stay? Let us know your thoughts below.
