Report: Bale Talks Hit a Snag

MOST COMMENTED

Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy and Real Madrid President Florentino Perez are still $21.7 million apart in their respective valuations of Gareth Bale, the Guardian reports. While Perez has offered Levy a world record $133.8 million for the coveted Welshman, Levy either wants $155.5 million in cash, or $155.5 million in total value, with young striker Alvaro Morata as a makeweight in the deal.

However, the report claims Real is unwilling to part with Morata, whom it considers to be a future Spain No. 9. Nevertheless, once the parties reconcile the $21.7 million, the deal will go through.

Bale, meanwhile, still desperately wants the move to go through, and has been encouraged by Levy’s willingness to entertain Perez. Even though Bale has not been involved in any preseason games with Spurs, Wales coach Chris Coleman has called him up to play for his country next week.
