Spurs reject Real’s £94 million package for Bale

Tottenham Manager Andre Villas-Boas insisted over the weekend that Gareth Bale will remain at Spurs and play another season. Tottenham rejected a record breaking £94 million package from Real Madrid.

Gareth Bale is without a doubt Real Madrid’s long-term transfer target. After refusing various offers over the years, Tottenham and Chairman Daniel Levy has now refused a record breaking £94 million offer for Bale.

The Welshman played 6 years at the White Hart Lane, played his most impressive season last year, scored 26 goals and became the PFA’s player and young player of the year and the Football Writers’ Association player of the year. However, according to different sources, Bale is inclined to leave the Spurs for Real. He has been loyal to the club for almost 6 years now, grew and became the player he is today. However, Bale wants to play Champions League football, something that the Spurs cannot offer. His skill, qualities and ambition are the key driver for his success. However, with those, he has certainly outgrown the Spurs.

According to different media reports from Spain and England, Real Madrid offered not only a transfer fee of £52 million, but also Angel Di Maria (value of £25 million) and Fabio Coentrao (£17 million) – a total package of £94 million for the Welshman. The previous transfer record was paid in 2009 for Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid paid £81 million to Manchester United.

Gareth Bale is upset with Levy, who promised him that he can leave the club if the Spurs can’t secure Champions League football and if the Spurs receive appropriate offer. Bale has a contract until 2016.

Real Madrid will continue pushing for the Welshman, it’s a matter of time and money when Levy will agree to a deal. According to reports, Spurs are asking over £100 million. It remains to be seen what the next move might be.

The biggest transfer of the summer was Edinson Cavani’s £55 million move from Naples to Paris St-Germain. Real was also already active on the transfer market and bought Isco for £26 million from FC Malaga and Illarramendi for £26 million from Real Sociedad.
