Reports emerging from Spain have suggested that Welshman Gareth Bale has stunned Tottenham Hotspur by demanding a move to Real Madrid, citing broken promises by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. It is being reported that Bale was told there would be negotiations with interested clubs if Spurs failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League and if a reasonable offer was made for him.
The Madrid based paper that has reported the news has also insisted that Bale wants out of the club without delay and he is open to only a move to Real Madrid and would reject the chance to join Premier League champions Manchester United who are also keeping close tabs on development as they look for a stunning signing to kick off the David Moyes era at the club.
And by suggesting that Tottenham Hotspur have broken the promise they made to him, Bale could even demand a transfer in order to force through his dream move to Real Madrid. There have been unconfirmed reports that Real Madrid has already had a massive bid rejected for the player, which would have seen the transfer record shattered.
And although it is still unconfirmed who revealed Bale’s comments to the Spanish media, it is looking more and more likely that the player will be playing his football away from White Hart Lane this summer.
Real also want Bale to play his part in the transfer saga and hand in a transfer request and after publicly courting the player all summer, it seems very unlikely that the Madrid giants will take no for an answer and will pull out all the stocks to secure the signing of the player they have coveted for some time. And the ball is now in the court of Tottenham Hotspur and what they do.
