Tottenham Hotspur are confident Gareth Bale will sign a bumper new contract to stay at White Hart Lane despite interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid, the
A deal worth £170,000 per week is said to be on the table for the Wales winger, which would also see an extra year added to the duration of his contract with Spurs – potentially tying him to the club until 2017. It is expected that the Bale camp will meet with the Tottenham hierarchy at the start of June, and the Mirror claims it is expected to be an easy coming together between the parties with few problems envisaged.
Bale, who has picked up three separate Player of the Year awards in recognition for his form this season, is understood to be valued at £60m, with La Liga side Madrid thought to be keen on taking him to Spain. But Madrid would have competition for Bale’s signature from Manchester United, where new manager David Moyes is looking to put his stamp on the side.
But Bale is not known to be seeking a move away from his current club – and indeed, the newspaper adds that signing Bale to a new contract will act as a catalyst for Spurs to dip into the transfer market, using the retention of Bale as proof they can both attract and keep big names.
