To add more drama to what is an incredible story, Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale's parents have entered into the fray over the ongoing saga regarding where the phenomenal Welshman will ply his trade next season.
According to the Sun, the 23-year-old star's mother and father were seen going into a meeting with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has made Bale his number one priority signing after missing out on Brazilian wonderkid Neymar, and is prepared to shell out a new world record transfer fee to land the winger.
The Spanish capital side has made several bids for the Welshman, but Levy remains adamant that Bale will stay at London next season.
Bale has made his intentions clear as to which side he would like to represent next season, apparently saying to chairman Levy that he wants to play "only for Real Madrid" and is believed to be anguished at Tottenham's stance regarding the transfer.
The English club have refused to even consider a massive €100 million bid for the Welsh star in spite of the player and his agent informing the club how much the player wants to play for Madrid, leading to a very ugly standoff between the player and his chairman.
This ridiculously dogged stance from Tottenham has now forced the Bales to intervene on behalf of their son, and they were spotted arriving at the club's training ground yesterday to have talks with Levy.
Levy was in Florida on holiday with his family and had to jet back to London for this hastily arranged meeting.
Reports from Spain are optimistic of a deal happening later this week as Levy and co. are increasingly getting accustomed of the idea of a Bale-less Tottenham side next season.
