The report claims that Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy recently contacted Florentino Perez regarding the purchase of Gareth Bale. The meeting has left him confident that he can convince Real Madrid to part ways with the 30-year old. However, the Lilywhites are still struggling to strike an agreement with Bale regarding his salary. The Welshman earns an exorbitant £500,000 a week at the Bernabeu.
Should an agreement struck that satisfies all three parties, then Tottenham will pull off the most sensational transfer of the January transfer window. However, there’s a lot of variables involved and too little time.
Despite the bad blood between Zidane and Bale being an open secret, the Frenchman is surprisingly reluctant to allow bale to leave.
“Gareth is here with us and I am counting on him,” the Frenchman said this morning when the prospect of Bale leaving was put to him. “I am not contemplating this possibility.”
