Report: Spurs Would Sell Bale for Record Price

MOST COMMENTED

According to Spanish daily AS, Tottenham owner David Levy is willing to sell Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a world record $159.2 million; Real, however, is only prepared to counter that with a cash-plus-player offer for Angel Di Maria worth $114 million.

The report claims further that Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas is a huge fan of Di Maria and sees the Argentine as the ideal replacement for Bale, while Di Maria has been unsettled by Real’s pursuit of a player who would take his position.

AVB on Friday admitted that talks between Spurs and Bale’s agent are ongoing. "There were contacts last year between the club and his agent," said Villas-Boas. "And there are still ongoing contacts between club and agent. The player renewed his contract last year by the beginning of the season, if you remember, and it's something that is being dealt with by the chairman and the agent. Talks are ongoing, but that doesn't mean there is an agreement."
