Bale Pushing for World Record Transfer to Real

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has returned from his family vacation in Florida in order to hold crunch talks with star player Gareth Bale over a potential move to Real Madrid. The Welshman was reportedly left “distraught” by Levy’s refusal to consider a world record bid of $132.5 million from the Spanish giant. The two-time Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year now plans to tell Spurs management he wants to move to Real in a face-to-face meeting this week.

According to the Guardian, Bale desperately wants to play in the UEFA Champions League, which is something Spurs cannot offer him after finishing fifth last season. The report claims that the situation could quickly turn ugly if the player is not allowed to leave. At the moment, the 24-year-old is carrying a slight injury, but once he recovers, he may refuse to play in order to force through a transfer to Real. If it gets really bad, he might hand in a transfer request, which would immediately lower his transfer price.
