Tottenham transfer rumors: Gareth Bale attracting $131 million offer from Real Madrid?


The Gareth Bale situation is beginning to get out of hand. According to a report from The MirrorTottenham Hotspur has rejected a $124.6 million bid from Real Madrid for the team’s star player. Tottenham has been rejecting offers for Bale left and right, but now Real Madrid has prepared a new offer that could blow the socks off of Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

If you believe the latest buzz, Real Madrid is currently preparing another offer for Bale that will be worth $130.8 million.

Real Madrid’s offer exceeds the previous transfer record, which was Cristiano Ronaldo’s fee when they acquired him from Manchester United, by nearly $7.7 million.

The bad news for Bale is that Levy is adamant that he will not entertain any of the offers. In fact, he will not even acknowledge them.

From ESPN reporter Miguel Delaney:

The interesting wrinkle in this story is that the club’s manager Andre Villas-Boas has repeatedly said in the past that Bale would not be leaving Tottenham. Now, he is suddenly quiet on the issue.

The growing belief is that a deal with Madrid is in fact in the works, so we will have to wait and see if something finally goes through. Until then, let the speculation continue.
