Tottenham technical director Franco Baldini has flown to Spain to re-open negotiations with Real Madrid over the transfer of Gareth Bale - who could become a Real player as soon as tomorrow, according to reports.
The Welshman is expected to complete his work record 'dream move' to the Bernabeu in a deal expected to be around £100m, after Baldini arrived in Madrid.
And the well-documented transfer saga looks set for a conclusion with Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas spending the best part of £120million this summer - which is speculated to be funded from the Bale departure.
Spanish radio station Cadena COPE, sourced by Marca, who have been close to the deal all summer, has revealed that the signing of the 24-year-old will be confirmed after the club's friendly against Qatar side Al Sadd.
Bale's departure from White Hart Lane is set to break Real's previous record of £80m when they captured Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.
And with Fabio Coentrao is expected to be part of the package deal, although chairman Daniel Levy wants a separate deal for the left back.
Villas-Boas has been busy spending with Roberto Saldado, Nacer Chadli, Paulinho and Etienne Coupe have all been drafted in, with the eagerly awaited arrival of Willian and Erik Lamela expected in the coming days.
AVB has denied a deal was completed on Wednesday but conceded the player can leave the club.
"Ideally we want to keep everyone to make us stronger - that is the ultimate objective of the club. In the end, anything can happen," he said.
