Gareth Bale agrees personal terms with Real Madrid

Published Add your comment

The BBC are reporting that Gareth Bale has agreed personal terms with Real Madrid.

In possibly the slowest moving transfer of recent memory, Bale's agreement of personal terms has moved the world record breaking move that one step closer to completion.

"While discussions in Madrid have taken some days, it's important to stress this was always a formality," said BBC chief sports correspondent Dan Roan.

"The agreement over personal terms has no bearing on the timing of the actual transfer being announced."

The move is reported to be around £86m but the BBC is claiming that Real Madrid have offered a lump sum of £70m as an alternative to the latter, which involves a number of instalments and clauses.

Bale has recently returned from a holiday in Spain and is refusing to train or play for Tottenham ahead of the move. He has also apparently said goodbye to his Spurs' teammates already.

"The conclusion of the talks over personal terms separate from negotiations between Real Madrid and Spurs regarding the amount and structuring of a transfer fee," Roan added.

"All that remains now is for Spurs to formally accept Real Madrid's offer and to agree on simultaneous announcements."

It is still not certain whether Bale will be a Madrid or Spurs player by the Monday deadline, but it seems as though it's edging towards sunny Spain.
