The Daily Bale: Spurs transfer news round-up – Morata, Lamela and Real Madrid cash
TRANSFER Balls in association with the Daily Bale: a look at Spurs striker Gareth Bale’s movements in today’s media:
So. Is Bale on his way from Spurs to Real Madrid?
Spy on Ghana: “£87m Tottenham For Gareth Bale Sealed”
Indy: “Real have been heavily linked with Bale throughout the summer, leading to suggestions that they are willing to break the £80m world record transfer fee – set in 2009 when they signed Cristiano from Manchester United.”
The Drum: “Gareth Bale to continue as BT Sport ambassador even if £85m switch to Real Madrid goes through”
The Guardian: “Real have so far bid a world record €100m (£86m) in straight cash for Bale, which has not been enough to sway the Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy.”
Daily Star: “Bale wants to talk to Madrid, who are likely to have to stump up an incredible £100m to convince Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to do business.”
Got that? He’s gone for £87m; will cost £85m; has not gone for £86m; and could cost more than £80m; or £100m.
Who replaces him?
Give Me Sport: “Tottenham have identified AS Roma star Erik Lamela as Gareth Bale’s replacement – should the Welsh wing wizard move to Real Madrid”
