The instalment plan would enable Madrid to only pay £20 million to Tottenham up front.
Real Madrid are set to sign Gareth Bale for a world record fee but only want to pay £20 million up front and spread the rest of the payment over a number of years, the Sunday Mirror reports.
Tottenham are in talks with Madrid about the transfer of Bale and have given up in their attempts to persuade him to stay, with Andre Villas-Boas already planning for life without the star winger.
However, chairman Daniel Levy will push for better terms with Madrid and will want a lot more up front for their star player.
Spurs are set to demand a world record £100 million for Bale, an amount Madrid are willing to pay but only if they can create an instalment plan, where they pay a sum every season.
Although talks are going on, the deal isn’t completed yet and it is becoming complicated as the North London club want to have Fabio Coentrao as part of the deal.
However, the defender is unsure whether he wants to move to White Hart Lane as he doesn’t know whether it will be good for his career.
A meeting over Coentrao’s future is set to happen sometime on Sunday.
