Los Blancos prepared to offer £86m plus Di Maria for Welsh winger.
Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts
Tottenham Hotspur are willing to sell star man Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, but only for a word-record fee of 120 million euros that is, reports the Daily Mail.
The coveted Wales international has been the subject of intense speculation of late linking the pacy wide man with a big-money move away from White Hart Lane during the summer transfer window.
However, as yet the north London club have not received any bids whatsoever for the 24-year-old, although according to reports in Spanish sports daily AS, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has told his Spanish counterpart, Madrid president Florentino Perez, that he can bring the playmaker to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, but that it will cost him a whopping £103.5m.
And that has reportedly scared off los Blancos, who have already forked out a word-record transfer fee of £80m in order to sign Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009.
Madrid are though still hopeful of being able to persuade Spurs to do a deal for Bale that would involve a lump sum of £86m plus Argentina international Angel Di Maria in part exchange.
However, whether Tottenham would be willing to accept such an offer for a player who scored 26 goals in just 44 matches for the club last season very much remains to be seen.
