Bale can leave once replacement is found
Spurs chairmen Daniel Levy has finally agreed to sell the Welsh international, the newspaper has claimed, despite the fact the club continue to deny that the transfer has progressed.
But still this transfer saga changes every day, with reports saying in the last couple of days that another team has bid for Bale, and a race is on to sign the PFA Player of the Year.
Bale’s move to Madrid has been the definition of a transfer saga this summer, with reports changing what seems like hourly over whether he will leave.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have all claimed that they are not pursuing Bale, and in terms of other foreign interest there appears to be none, so the mystery over who the second bidder is remains a mystery.
The Daily Mail has said however that no matter who the second team is, the Welshman is only interested in Real.
The newspaper says Levy flew to Madrid with Bale’s agent and Franco Baldini last Wednesday to agree terms between the two clubs, and the winger now has his sights set on a move to the La Liga.
The fee too has finally been agreed and personal terms are in place, The Daily Mail has also stated.
How true all this is remains to be seen, but it does seem likely that Bale is on his way out of White Hart Lane, but Levy knows they need a replacement for him before they can let their star man walk.
After losing out to Chelsea to Anzhi Makhachkala star Willian, Levy knows that Andre Villas-Boas will need another player to try and step into the massive shoes of Gareth Bale.
Roma star Erik Lamela has long been linked with Spurs, and this possible move has been fired up by the fact he was left on the bench for Roma’s match with Livorno on Sunday.
Other options include Real Betis forward Alvaro Vadillo, an 18 year old who has drew comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo.
£8m is a transfer fee that is possible to sign the Spaniard, but Tottenham’s North London rivals Arsenal are said, by the newspaper, to also been in the hunt for the ‘next Ronaldo’.
