Spurs and Real Madrid ‘agree £93m deal’ for Gareth Bale
Tottenham have agreed to sell Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in a £93m deal, according to reports in Italy.
Sky Italia are reporting that the transfer is now just a matter of time.
If you’re wondering why an Italian news outlet would be the first to report that, Bale’s replacement-in-waiting, Roma winger Erik Lamela, is said to be on the verge of completing his move to White Hart Lane. Roma director of football Walter Sabatini is reportedly in London to finalise the move.
Since Lamela’s arrival is probably dependent on Bale leaving, it’s not entirely unrealistic to think that Roma’s representatives might have been given the nod that the deal is on.
And with the signing of Anzhi playmaker Willian for around £30m also rumoured to be close, Spurs’ spending plans would indicate that they are expecting a windfall very soon.
