French legend and current Real Madrid assistant manager Zinedine Zidane has made it clear that the Spanish club will not give up on signing the 2012/2013 PFA Player of the Year Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur.
Bale is currently the subject of a world record transfer bid, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is ignoring the interest from the Galacticos.
Zidane - who is now working alongside new manager Carlo Ancelotti - expressed his admiration of the Welshman, and has made it clear that Real Madrid will do what is needed to bring Bale to the Santiago Bernabeau.
Zidane said: "We're not giving up on Bale. It's impossible to forget about a player of his quality.
"It's normal Tottenham wants him to sign a new contract but we've made it clear that he's one of our main objectives."
Real Madrid and Spain goalkeeping legend Iker Casillas also heaped praise on the 24 year old winger saying he is one of the best players in Europe.
Casillas stated: "We're talking about a player who figures amongst the three or four best players in Europe and it's natural everyone is talking about him because he is such a talented player."
These statements will surely be accepted gratefully by Bale, and has surely now turned his head and he is considering moving to the Bernabeau.
Spanish newspaper AS reported that Spurs are willing to negotiate with Real Madrid, but will demand 98 million euros along with Fabio Coentrao who is valued at 20 million euros.
