White Hart Lane look to scare off interested parties with mammoth asking price.
Tottenham will demand a world transfer record fee of £100m from any prospective suitors keen on landing White Hart Lane’s prized asset Gareth Bale according to The Sun.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has slapped the massive price-tag on the 23 year old Welsh international in the hope that he will scare off interest in the in-form wide-man. Even though Bale is in excellent form this season, with 19 Premier League goals to his name, it is hugely unlikely any club would offer such a bid for his services.
A number of Europe’s ‘Elite’ are said to be keen on the former Southampton man with the likes of PSG, Bayern MUnich, and Real Madrid all keenly monitoring the youngster.
Andre Villas-Boas will hope to keep hold of Bale but the North London side know that if they fail to secure a Champions League berth this term then the talented attacker may well look to force the issue and demand an exit.
Tottenham currently sit in fifth place after a run of average form, including a run of just two wins in their last six Premier League fixtures.
Bale is into his sixth season at Tottenham and has racked up a total of 200 appearances for the club, scoring 53 goals in the process.
