Real Madrid preparing €109m deal for Gareth Bale?

by Kevin Coleman

Our old friends at Sky Italia are reporting that negotiations have accelerated between Tottenham and Real Madrid for the services of Gareth Bale over the last few hours. The latest figure mentioned in Gianluca Di Marzio’s report is £93million, just under €109million.

It is also mentioned that the deal will facilitate negotiations for Fabio Coentrao to go in the other direction.

Accurate or not, one thing’s for sure – Gareth Bale won’t be a Tottenham player by the first of September. A quick move this week will allow Tottenham plenty of time to secure the signature of Brazilian midfielder Willian, with rumours that a €35million move is in the pipeline, and possibly dip in for one more marquee signing at the 11th hour.
