THE Daily Bale: Anorak’s look at the Tottenham Hotspur star in the football transfer gossip mill. Having heard Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas state that Bale not leaving the club, today we get news that he is. Well, maybe.

TalkSport says Bale is heading to Real Madrid and Angel di Maria is heading in the opposite direction with lots of cash.

The GiveMeSport site says that’s great news. It says that with new signings, Spurs can improve. Bale is old news. Well, not quote. The Real Madrid spokesperson is talking about him:

“We are on it. The president is excited to bring him [Bale] to Madrid. The new Real Madrid coach Ancelotti also voted his support in the favour of signing the North London sensation by claiming that: ‘If we can bring him here, it would be very good.'”

Or as Ancelotti actually said:

“We’ve not spoken of signings because today is the first day I am here. I cannot give any information on the players who might come in or those who will leave. The squad is very good. In the next few days we will talk with the club about what we need. It has a lot of young players from the youth set-up. That’s good. Having youth products is good because they have ambition and enthusiasm.”

This blog adds:

Despite the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy slapping a 100 million euro price tag on Gareth Bale…

When did he do that? All we know of Levy is that he, apparently,  told AVB that Bale is staying put. AVB told media in Portugal:

“The chairman said that we are not open to offers, whatever they are, and that the player will stay.”

Or as the Daily Mirror puts it:

Spaniards hope a players plus cash offer will make Daniel Levy take his fingers out of his ears and stop saying ‘Na, na, na!’

What do Spurs get for Madrid tapping up their player?

Argentina winger Angel Di Maria is among several stars that the Spanish giants are willing to hand over to the White Hart Lane club with in order to land the Premier League’s Player of the Year.

But better than that, the Times says Real are offering Spurs cash and Gonzalo Higuain. That’s he player the Sun has alreayd dubbed ‘Gunnzalo‘ on account of his impending move to Arsenal.

The Express says such things were discussed when the Welshman’s reportedly met Bernabeu officials in  Madrid lest week.

Finally, the Borehamwood & Elstree Times, Gareth Bale has signed a new contract with Tottenham“.

More balls every day….
