MOST COMMENTED

Zinedine Zidane has added fuel to the Gareth Bale transfer saga fire by claiming that the option to join a club as prestigious as Real Madrid “might only come around once in a lifetime.” Speaking at a press conference in Los Angeles, the Real sporting director pressured Tottenham by saying, “If [Bale] has expressed a desire to join Madrid then Tottenham should give him permission to speak with us.”

According to the Daily Mail, Bale has already told Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy that he wants to leave for the La Liga giant, but he is reluctant to force a move by handing in a formal transfer request as he believes that might damage his relationship with Spurs fans. The report further claims that Levy would sanction a move if Real offers a world record fee of close to $130 million plus another player, rumored to be either winger Angel Di Maria or left back Fabio Coentrao. Bale, meanwhile, has told Levy that he wants his future resolved this week.
