Spurs old boy Gareth Bale considers buying Arsenal star Mesut Ozil’s old house in Madrid
Former Tottenham star Gareth Bale is thinking about buying the former Madrid home of Arsenal’s record signing Mesut Ozil.
After his protracted summer transfer saga, the Welshman is hoping for a simpler deal when it comes to snapping up Ozil’s £1m pad.
Ozil has already put his former home on the market for rent or permanent sale. Bale’s lawyers are said to be trying to negotiate a deal.
The 24-year-old and girlfriend Emma have reportedly already viewed the property, which is in the plush La Moraleja district near the Madrid suburb of Alcobendas, the Daily Mirror reports.
Real superstar Cristiano Ronaldo would be a new neighbour, and David Beckham also chose to live in the area when he moved to Madrid.
As detailed in the video above (in Spanish), the house has previously been targeted by a serial burglar known as the Grasshopper.
