Tottenham want to loan Bale
The Welshman can serve as part of Christian Eriksen’s potential transfer to Real Madrid.
Real Madrid and Tottenham are still in the process of negotiations regarding Christian Eriksen’s transfer to Santiago Bernabéu.
Previously, Spurs demanded fabulous money for the Dane, then Tottenham president’s appetites subsided somewhat. Now, a new detail appeared regarding this potential move.
According to AS, the London club bosses want Gareth Bale to return to the capital of England, but on loan only. Spurs aren’t ready to pay €70 million for the 29-year-old Welshman, but they can offer an option, in which Eriksen’s price may be reduced, in the case of Bale’s loan to Tottenham.
The difficulty for Hotspur is the fact that the club is also not ready to pay Bale the salary he is receiving at Santiago Bernabéu. At the moment, Gareth’s salary at Real is €12 million per year.
Recall Gareth Bale moved to Real Madrid from Tottenham for €101 million in the summer of 2013 and the transfer was the most expensive in the history of football at that time.
Bale was playing for Tottenham from 2007 to 2013. During that time, the Welshman played 203 matches for Spurs, scoring 56 goals and giving 58 assists. Together with the Londoners, the footballer won the English League Cup in 2008.
