Deal For Gareth Bale Agreed, Real to Pay 120M€, According to 'As'

The Spanish sports daily is clear: Tottenham and Real Madrid have agreed a 120M€ transfer fee for Gareth Bale that will be announced as soon as the Spurs sign some other players to reinforce the squad after Bale's departure.

This is all but confirmed, though. 'As' reports on its cover that Ancelotti will give minutes to Ramos, Arbeloa, Casillas and Marcelo against L.A Galaxy but these players aren't even on the list, so the reports about an agreement for Bale could be wrong as well. 'As' credibility has not been really strong these last few years, but they seem willing to put a little bit more at stake with this report about the Gareth Bale-saga.

On the other hand, 'ESPN' believes that Morata could be involved in the transfer after Ancelotti denied Modric's departure in press conference. Even though Álvaro Morata is not a better player than Ángel Di María or Fàbio Coentrao, it doesn't seem likely to see the young-Spanish forward leaving the club in what could be his break-out season.

The British newspapers are starting to see Gareth Bale on Real Madrid's uniform in the 2013-2014 season, but the saga could be far from over, as some report Tottenham want only cash and others say that the Spurs want a player involved as well (likely Di María or Coentrao).
