Welsh international to leave White Hart Lane for the Bernabeu next summer.
Tottenham have reportedly agreed a deal to sell Gareth Bale to Real Madrid next summer with the Spanish giants ready to fork out €96m (£83m) for the Welsh international according to Spanish source Cadena Ser.
The deal is said to have left the 24 year old furious with his White Hart Lane employers and is ready to call a press conference to state publicly that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy had not kept his word with regards to allowing him to move to the Bernabeu this summer.
Such a move would leave Bale in a state of limbo and could well lead to Tottenham fan’s turning against the talented attacker throughout 2012/13 and Levy’s decision to delay a promise to sell the player echoes claims made by Luka Modric when he too publicly spoke of an agreement he had with the club over his protracted move to join Real Madrid.
Clearly such an arrangement could also be derailed by an injury of significant loss of form as presumably a number of factors would be written into any ‘deal’ the two clubs have agreed over a move to sell Bale in the summer of 2014.
Real Madrid’s decision to accept such a move could perhaps be in part due to the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo is still to sign a long term contract and with two years left to run on his current deal president Florentino Perez may be concerned about losing the Portuguese international for a fraction of his true value.
Therefore if by next summer the 28 year old has not signed a new deal Perez could seek to sell their star player knowing that they had Gareth Bale ‘in the bag’.
Bale netted 26 goals in all competitions last term and won both the PFA Player and Young Player of the Year awards.
