Bale furious over Spurs claims
The Welshman feels he’s keeping everyone at Spurs informed, according to the newspaper, and speaks to Villas-Boas every day.
However, he’d earn £10million a year after tax with Madrid, the newspaper believes.
On Thursday, Tottenham manager Villas-Boas said, as reported by the newspaper :“Nobody knows his mental state because he doesn’t speak.
“The only thing that we are able to see, or you are able to see, is the player arriving in and out of the training ground.”
Bale however feels he’s kept everyone at Spurs well informed on his desire to join Madrid, speaking to Villas-Boas daily.
The winger is said to be in awe of the fact that Madrid value him so highly and that seems to be a major factor in his desire to go the Bernabéu.
The 24-year old, who will not be playing in Spurs’ season opener against Crystal Palace today, can expect to to top up his contract with image rights payments.
That will push Bale into the top tier of best paid players with his annual salary totalling around £10million a year, the newspaper claims.
Real offered the North London club £86.3million last month with £26.8million being paid up front and the remainder over his five-year contract, the newspaper claims.
The Sunday People revealed two weeks ago that this is what is causing the hold up in the deal with Tottenham wanting more of the transfer fee paid in cash this summer.
Spurs chief Daniel Levy is holding out for £100million with £45million of this being paid up front and the rest over his contract, the report states.
Spurs seem resigned to losing their talisman but Levy looks set to get the best deal possible for his club.
The Tottenham players are determined to qualify for the Champions League this time around, after the agony of missing out to Arsenal on the final day last season.
Spurs have had a much more productive summer, signing Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Nacer Chadli and Etienne Capoue so far, while the Gunners have only brought in Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer.
“As a club you never want to stand still – and we are moving forward,” said Dawson, as reported by the newspaper.
“I would not say there is a mental block with finishing above Arsenal. Arsenal are a top team and last year was unbelievable for us to miss out.
“At the beginning of last season it was our aim to be in the Champions League and 72 points was a club record. But it still wasn’t quite good enough.
“Now our aim is again to be back in the Champions League.”
