The North London club are reportedly hoping to sell Gareth Bale for a world record £100 million.
Tottenham have finally opened talks with Real Madrid over the sale of Gareth Bale, with the North London club looking to sell the winger for a world record £100 million, Goal.com reports
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy set to meet Real’s president Florentino Perez on August 6th to finalise a deal, with officials at White Hart Lane becoming convinced that the Welshman’s future lies in the Spanish capital.
Levy had originally stated that Bale wouldn’t be sold for any price but his stance has softened in recent days as Real continue to bump up their price for the winger.
Bale is also desperate to move to the Santiago Bernabeu and has demanded talks with Levy, where he has stated his desire to leave White Hart Lane for Madrid.
Despite Levy now being open to a sale, he will only accept an offer that will smash the current world record of £80 million that Real paid Manchester United for Cristano Ronaldo in 2009.
It is thought that the Spurs chairman is holding out for a whopping £100 million for Bale and will then use the money to lure either Angel Di Maria or Fabio Coentrao to White Hart Lane.
Despite Bale’s desire to move to Real Madrid, he doesn’t want to hand in a transfer request at Spurs and if a move doesn’t materialise he will still have the backing of manager Andre Villas-Boas.
