Londoners will not sell playmaker at any price before 2014 though.
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is prepared to offer star man Gareth Bale a new deal worth £150,000 per week in order to keep the player at White Hart Lane this summer, reports the Daily Mail.
The in-demand Wales international has been the subject of intense speculation throughout the entire close-season transfer window, with both Premier League champions Manchester United and Spanish giants Real Madrid reportedly happy to break the bank in order to land the 24-year-old.
However, the north London club have so far steadfastly refused to even enter into negotiations with those two clubs for the wide man’s sale, although there is also a realisation at Tottenham that Bale may seek a new challenge in his career next year.
But to ensure that last season’s double Player of the Year does remain in the capital this summer in the face of offers such as the £200,000-per-week contract that los Blancos have on the table for Bale, Levy recognises that Spurs themselves must reward the playmaker with a bumper new deal following his eye-catching campaign last time out.
Bale scored 26 goals in just 44 matches for the Londoners in the 2012/13 campaign and will become the club’s highest-paid player were he to agree to the new contract.
