Report: Bale Out; Willian, Lamela In at Spurs

MOST COMMENTED

It looks increasingly likely that Gareth Bale’s transfer package to Real Madrid, which the Daily Express is reporting will cost the Spanish giant $163 million (which includes Fabio Coentrao for $28 million), is being used to fund the $47 million transfers (each) of Willian from Anzhi Makhachkala and Erik Lamela from AS Roma to Tottenham Hotspur.

While the Bale deal is not yet completed, Willian has already completed his medical and Lamela is reportedly on his way to London to do the same. The additions of wingers Willian and Lamela would take Spurs’ total spending this summer to $213.4 million. The London club has already spent $90.3 million on Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Nacer Chadli and Etienne Capoue.

Meanwhile, a source close to the Bale deal told the Express on Tuesday: “Talks are still ongoing. It is not tied up yet, but we hope soon. There are still some details to be agreed.”
