Spanish giants decide to wait until next summer for Tottenham star.
Tottenham fans will be breathing a sigh of relief after it was claimed that Real Madrid are pulling out of the race to sign Gareth Bale.
Reports in Spanish newspaper Marca are suggesting that the Spanish giants have finally run out of patience in the ongoing transfer saga after their latest bid was once again rebuked with a firm ‘no’.
Tottenham President Daniel Levy is known to be a tough negotiator and can stick his heels firmly in the ground when he is determined not to sell a player.
That appears to have persuaded Real that their energies are best spent elsewhere for this summer and that they should focus on alternative targets.
Unlike with Luka Modric, Bale has refused to hand in a transfer request, or put the kind of pressure on Tottenham that would be necessary to persuade the White Hart Lane club to sell.
Bale is more than happy to spend another year in England, and while it remains likely a deal will be done sooner or later, the Welsh youngster is in no rush to secure a move.
It is being suggested that Tottenham were demanding a fee in the region of £100 million for Bale, which has proved too much even for Real Madrid to spend on one player.
