Real Madrid’s hopes of signing Gareth Bale have taken a knock. According to the ‘Daily Mail’, PSG is prepared to offer Tottenham some £85 million (almost €100 million) to sign the Spurs winger.
The sheikh and president of the Paris outfit, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, wants the Welshman to form the cornerstone of his new project at PSG and is willing to beat any offer which Real Madrid comes up with to snatch the Premier League’s 2013 Player of the Year.
PSG are also considering bringing in Villas-Boas to replace Carlo Ancelotti, which could boost Bale’s chances of ending up in the French capital.
Real Madrid have been busy this offseason. President Florentino Perez and director of football Raúl Sanllehí have been all around the world trying to put together a team worthy of the club’s budget. One player they had their sights set firmly on was Premier League star Gareth Bale, but a recent turn of events have darkened those chances.
The English press reported today that Real Madrid is preparing a bid for Gareth Bale, a Florentino Perez target this summer, especially if Neymar eventually signs with FC Barcelona. According to ‘Daily Star’, the Madrid offer contains 50 million euros plus a player among the group of Pepe, Higuain, Di Maria and Marcelo. According to their information, Tottenham desires Higuain to bolster their front, so the Argentinian could be the key for Real Madrid to recruit the Welsh product.
The extra responsibilities Zinedine Zidane will take on at Real Madrid, when Florentino Pérez decides to call on him, will be nothing new for the Frenchman. Zidane has already advised the Real president in the past – as was the case with the signing of Raphaël Varane, who was recommended by the club legend – and it seems his advice was spot on.
Zidane has also been acting as a club scout this season and is closely monitoring Gareth Bale, one of Real’s summer transfer targets. The former France international went to see the Welshman in the Europa League tie between Lyon and Tottenham. It seems Zidane is impressed by Bale and believes he would make a useful addition to the Madrid squad.
