Madrid claim agreement with Tottenham on Bale transfer fee

Real Madrid have agreed to pay Tottenham Hotspur a world record £105m for Gareth Bale, the Daily Mirror has reported, in a deal that would see players move in the opposite direction, but it is not yet known who will be joining the Premier League club.

It was claimed on Thursday evening by Madrid that a fee had been agreed with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy with only the exact make-up of the transfer to be decided on. Levy also wants the money on offer to exceed the current world record sum of £80m, paid to Manchester United by Madrid for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009.

Left-back Fabio Coentrao is one of the players mentioned as on the way to White Hart Lane and he was withdrawn from a Madrid friendly with LA Galaxy, although Madrid claimed the defender was injured.

It had been reported that Tottenham wanted young striker Alvaro Morata as part of the deal but Madrid have rejected the proposal; likewise Carlo Ancelotti will not allow Luka Modric to be included in the offer, while Angel di Maria does not want to leave Madrid.
