It looks like Real Madrid are desperate to offload Gareth Bale in the summer, if the reports coming out of Spain are to be believed.
According to Tuesday’s edition of AS, Tottenham Hotspur looks like one of the options for the Wales international, or that’s what Madrid hope.
Lucas Moura’s stoppage time goal against Ajax last week helped his side seal a berth in the Champions League final and they will take on Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano next month.
The Spanish newspaper explains Spurs would be a ‘good destination’ for the former Southampton man, especially if Mauricio Pochettino’s men go on to win Europe’s elite club competition.
Los Blancos are of the belief the 29-year-old still has a market in the Premier League and Manchester United are still ‘looking the like best option’ for the attacker.
Bale’s net salary of €14m-a-year is the biggest issue for any club to land him in the next transfer window, especially when he has played only 53% of the matches for Real Madrid since joining them in 2013.
The Spanish press are doing their best to push Bale towards Tottenham and/or United, but in AS’ report, there is no suggestion or claims if either of the two clubs are actually keen on landing him.
