Real Madrid set about tapping up Spurs star Gareth Bale

THE DAILY Bale:  a look at the Tottenham Hotspur striker in the news. Is the Welshman on his way to Real Madrid?

The Sun:

REAL MADRID last night confirmed they will not baulk if Tottenham demand £85million for Gareth Bale. President Florentino Perez has smashed the world transfer record four times to bring in Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane, Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Perez told Marca newspaper:

“For those players and investments that generate and produce income, you can give everything in life. I showed in 2000 that with those players you change the dynamic and go from losing to winning. But we don’t speak of Bale so much because he plays at a friendly club to us and they will be annoyed if we speak. I know their chairman well and he doesn’t like these things.”

What’s the Spanish for ‘tapping up?’

The Spanish transfer window opens for business on July 1. What odds that by then Bale is being talked about in Spurs circles are being ‘priceless’..?
