Tottenham star seeks £200,000 deal to stay put

Published 4 Comments

Gareth Bale is willing to stay at Tottenham next season - if the club offer him a new £200,000-per-week contract.

Bale has been in sensational form this season, scoring 31 goals for club and country. 

While his efforts weren't quite enough to lift Spurs into a Champions League qualification spot - they were pipped by rivals Arsenal by a single point - the Welshman has reportedly caught the eye of Real Madrid.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas remains adamant that Bale won't be sold this summer despite the club missing out on a top-four spot.

That looks to be the case with reports yesterday suggesting Bale could soon put pen to paper on a new contract that will keep him at the club next season - although the deal also includes a release-clause that will let him leave if someone offers £50 million next summer.

The Independent claim that Bale's advisors are looking for a pay rise to £200,000-per-week which would smash Spurs' wage structure and comfortably make him the club's highest earner.

While Spurs are unlikely to be able to offer Bale a contract that would put him on par with the Premier League's highest earners, they are reportedly ready to offer a deal in the region of around £150,000-per-week.

Bale's current contract is said to be worth £100,000 and expires in 2016.

According to the Independent Bale won't be sold this summer regardless of whether he signs the new deal or not.

As of next summer the 23-year-old will only have two years left on his current contract, something which would then force the north London club to start listening to offers.
