Real Madrid are lining up an offer of £51 million plus Angel di Maria and Fabio Coentrao to convince Tottenham to part ways with their star man Gareth Bale, reports The Sun.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has so far remained true to his reputation of being a hard negotiator and has refused to entertain any offers for his prized jewel, but this latest offer from Madrid should really test his resolve.
Bale is determined to play Champions League football with Madrid next season and is said to be unhappy with the way his present club has handled the transfer so far.
He is miffed with chairman Levy for having refused two bids from the Spanish capital side, the latest of which would have topped the previous world record transfer fee of £80 million, after seemingly promising him last summer that he would be allowed to move if a good offer came along.
Though he is happy at the White Hart Lane, the lack of Champions League football at the north London side and the chance to link up with footballing greats like Cristiano Ronaldo, in what he believes to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is a keen admirer of Di Maria and has shown an interest in the last few days in acquiring the player in exchange for Bale.
Madrid president Florentino Perez is determined to bring Bale to the club and has decided to include the Argentine star in his latest offer to Tottenham in spite of convincing the wide-man to stay with Los Blancos after Jose Mourinho's departure.
Di Maria is however, not too keen on a move this summer and wants to stay at Madrid with his family settled.
Coentrao on the other hand is not settled in Madrid and is believed to be keen to leave the club this summer; hoping for this transfer to take place after seeing his future put in the back burner.
