Gareth Bale wants Madrid move, says agent

Published Add your comment

Gareth Bale's agent and Real Madrid have agreed personal terms for a possible move to Spain this summer, according to reports.

Marca believe Bale will earn between €6m and €7m per year at "the club he wanted to play for . . . since he was a kid."

The 24-year-old's future is uncertain at Spurs, despite the north London outfit insisting Bale's future is at White Hart Lane.

Premier League champions Manchester United and La Liga runner-ups Real Madrid are both reportedly in the running for the player's signature, should he leave this summer.

However, the Spanish giants remain in pole position to land the former Southampton player.

Real president Florentino Perez met Bale's agent last month to discuss the move, where both parties agreed terms, as well as his shirt number, 11.

But Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is keen to keep Bale at the Lane and will resist any offers - unless Real Madrid offer a world-record transfer fee for the winger.

Cristiano Ronaldo's move from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009 holds the record transfer fee of €94 million, though Bale's fee would likely eclipse that.

While Bale's agent has said that the Welsh wizard is keen for a move to the Bernabeu this summer, a move is likely to be difficult to push through.
