Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti admits that his club are keen on bringing Gareth Bale to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The unsettled Tottenham Hotspur star has already shown his desire to leave White Hart Lane and join the Spanish giants, whom he has been heavily linked with, in what is believed to be a record breaking mega-money deal.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has been reluctant to let Bale slip out of his hands, and has tried everything to block the deal by trying to frustrate Real Madrid, who seems to be relentless in their efforts in pursuit for the Wales international.
Finally, it looks as though the north London club have bowed to the pressure, and they are ready to go to the negotiating table with Real Madrid as confirmed by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy on Wednesday.
Speaking to a reporter in the United States, Real Madrid boss Ancelotti is quoted by Goal.com: "It's difficult to talk about Bale because he doesn't play for Real Madrid.
"We'll see what happens; I'm happy with the current squad. I have not spoken to Bale. Usually I do not speak to players in other teams. The club is looking for a solution in the case of Bale though there's no new development with regard to this."
The 24-year-old Wales international is ready to play in La Liga this coming season, and he is just hoping the club does not drag the deal as it has been for a couple of weeks now, since he has already made it clear to the club and to his manager that he wants to leave.
The combination of Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo is just a huge prospect to Real Madrid fans who have strong hopes of winning La Liga and the Champions League that has eluded them for years now.
Most players will relish the chance to play for Real Madrid, and it looks like Bale doesn't want to miss out on this opportunity, that's what Los Blancos might be banking on.
