Real Madrid bid £85m for Gareth Bale

Real Madrid have brought the transfer market to life with a world-record £85million bid for Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale, reports Sky Sports.

The Spanish club have made an historic bid in an attempt to gain the services of the Wales international to La Liga.

This is the latest in the Gareth Bale fiasco regarding his future, and now that Madrid have made an official bid, he could be looking into trying to move away from the Premier League.

It is understood that Real Madrid could go to around 93million euros in order to attain the PFA Player and Young Player of the Year.

However, Madrid-based newspaper Marca claimed on its front page that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy demanded a fee of £126million. 

A bid in this nature could dwarf that of the big bucks that Real Madrid paid for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009. But, the paper has been scrutinised for giving false news in the past, so a 'final bid' – in a hypothetical situation – might not be as large as to hit triple figures.

In terms of who believes this news, online bookmaker Sky Bet have made Madrid odds-on-favourites to land the player with 4/7 odds for him to leave White Hart Lane in the current transfer window.

In the light of this news, many fans within the Premier League and Tottenham will be greatly melancholy if the news was to result in the eventual departure of one of the league's star players; except for Arsenal fans who would be greatly pleased to see their rivals potentially crippled in the coming weeks.

However, rivals of Spurs shouldn't become too pleased, as a bid in such high figures could buy Tottenham an entirely new squad, which could even see them stronger without notably their best player in recent memory.

Nevertheless, the league would see a great loss if the Welshman does materialise the move to Spain.
