Tottenham are close to agreeing a new contract with Gareth Bale that will more than double his salary and make him the best paid player in the club’s history, Goal.com UK can reveal.

Spurs are in advanced talks with Bale’s representatives about an improved deal that will keep him away from the clutches of a queue of suitors led by Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

Chairman Daniel Levy is prepared to shatter the club’s strict wage policy to keep Bale and has put together a basic £100,000-a-week package that will rise during the length of the contract depending on the team and player hitting targets.

It is believed that the terms have been agreed for a five-year deal but negotiations are continuing on the structure of bonuses and image rights payments.

Spurs rewarded Bale with a four-year £40,000-a-week deal last May but Goal.com UK understands that the midfielder’s camp rejected the opportunity at the time to sign a six-year agreement. (Goal.com)

One can see why Tottenham are so keen to allay exit fears by offering Gareth Bale a lucrative new contract. It has become increasingly apparent just how crucial a part the Welsh international has played in Tottenham’s 18 months of staggering progress and Daniel Levy and Harry Redknapp know that the kind of interest being shown in the 21 year old will clearly play on the youngsters mind but by showing their complete faith in the winger in the form of a huge pay rise they will help to make such exit talk a moot point.

Bale went off injured after just 11 minutes of Tottenham’s match at St James’ Park yesterday and the North London club will hope that his back injury is not going to keep him out of the team for too long but perhaps this huge offer will help him heal even quicker.
