Bernabeu side hope to tempt White Hart Lane side into selling prized asset.
Real Madrid will reportedly look to offer bit-part forward Jose Callejon as a sweetener ahead of a big money offer for Tottenham winger Gareth Bale according to the Daily Mirror.
Despite Tottenham’s resilience to turn down any offers for 23 year old wing wizard Bale it appears that Spanish giants Real Madrid continue to look to force the issue but one wonders just how the offer of a player who rarely makes it into Jose Mourinho’s first team starting line-up would give the Bernabeu side the edge in the chase for the Welsh international.
Callejon has proven to be a useful ‘go-to’ player to either close out games or to use sporadically when average form from other ‘big name’ players dictates it necessary and is seemingly not a player who is likely to charm Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy into selling the White Hart Lane side’s prized asset.
Any chance Real Madrid have of luring Bale depends heavily on three factors. One, Tottenham clinching a Champions League berth, which could greatly affect the chances of keeping the former Southampton man. Two, Gareth Bale himself looking to force the issue by putting in a transfer request, a request that doesn’t look likely to be made anytime soon. Three, on whether the Spanish giants are willing to fork out the type of huge fee it would take to persuade the North London side to sell.
26 year old Callejon, who perhaps tellingly is yet to win a senior Spanish national team cap, has made 13 La Liga starts thus far this term but has managed to register just three assists and one solitary goal.
