Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Tottenham Hotspur midfield player Gareth Bale has now flown to Spain ahead of his expected presentation as a Real Madrid player on Tuesday, although both sides are still understood to be finalising details over the Welshman’s exit from White Hart Lane, according to reports in the Mail on Sunday.

The 24-year-old landed in Malaga on Sunday morning and then took a taxi ride to Marbella, where the wide man will now wait in a hotel while his club and los Blancos attempt to put the finishing touches on his world-record transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Liga giants have reportedly offered the north London club two different bids to ponder, the first worth a world-record 100 million euros (£86m) to be paid across a three or four-year period, while the second is understood to be worth £70m, but that will be paid in full in one lump sum, and could also include a Madrid player in part exchange.

And while Spurs chairman Daniel Levy decides which of the two offers to accept, with the club said to be concerned about the length of time it will take to receive the money in the first option, the Wales international will simply wait to be given the green light that the deal has been done.

Tottenham have made one last-ditch attempt to persuade Bale to remain in the capital by offering the player a new deal worth a whopping £200,000 per week, but the winger has already made up his mind though and is expected to finally be unveiled in the Spanish capital on Tuesday after Madrid play Granada in La Liga on Monday night.
