Real Madrid cap transfer fee in pursuit of Tottenham winger Bale

Real Madrid are willing to pay no more than £45m in their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale, the Daily Mirror has reported, but could be tempted into offering a big name player as part of the deal for the Wales international, with Angel di Maria or Gonzalo Higuain among the possibilities mooted.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has insisted Spurs have no intention of selling Bale to Madrid this summer but that has not stopped the La Liga club from lining up their offer, said to be worth a huge amount in terms of both the transfer fee and the wages the former Southampton player would receive.

But Bale recently signed a new deal to stay at White Hart Lane until 2016, with a reported £75,000 per week pay packet, and could even be offered fresh terms by Spurs in an effort to ward off the interest from the Santiago Bernabeu.

Bale has scored 23 goals in 41 games for Andre Villas-Boas’ side this season, including the third goal of Sunday’s 3-1 win over Manchester City, helping Tottenham to the brink of next season’s Champions League.
