Real Madrid and Spurs Talks at Advanced Stage

BaleNorth London side Tottenham Hotspurs are believed to be in advanced talks with Spanish giants Real Madrid over the proposed move for Welsh superstar Gareth Bale.

The transfer has yet to be agreed, but it could happen in the coming days and is set to eclipse the £80m world record fee Real paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009.

Bale, 24, did not travel for Thursday’s Europa League game with Dinamo Tbilisi.

Should this record breaking deal come to fruition, the Barclay’s Premier League will be losing one of its brightest young stars. Not only this, but it underlines La Liga’s power to attract the world’s best players.
