And Spanish newspaper 'ABC' also reports that Bale has reached an agreement with Real Madrid in which he would sign a six-year contract for around 10M€ per year. 'Marca' agrees with 'The Sun' and believes that the Bale-saga could end in the newxt few hours. Daniel Levy is now willing to negotiate after the player told him he wanted to leave, according to these reports.
André Villas-Boas would like to have Ángel Di María as Bale's replacement, and that would make the transfer a lot cheaper, but the Argentinian player wants to stay in Madrid by all means. In the meantime, Villas-Boas has confirmed that Tottenham and Bale are discussing an extension. But the Portuguese coach admitted that this discussion might not lead to an agreement.
Manchester United would also want to land Gareth Bale, but Daniel Levy would rather sell him to Real Madrid. The Spanish club is reportedly offering more money than the Red Devils, and it seems quite obvious that the Spurs would not want to reinforce one of their Premier League rivals.
'Marca' reports that Levy will sell Bale if Florentino Pérez offers 96.000.001M€, a transfer fee that would be the highest paid ever in football history.
On the other hand, the Daily Mirror says that Levy has told Bale he will not be sold this summer.
It would be surprising to see this saga ending in the next few hours -that's what 'Marca' says-, but it is all starting to look quite better for Real Madrid's board.
