Tottenham Hotspur May Offer Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for £88million Plus Alvaro Morata

alvaro morata Tottenham Hotspur May Offer Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for £88million Plus Alvaro Morata

Is Gareth Bale staying or is he on the brink of a departure?

The rumor mill this summer has hit a distinct level of boredom, with the press reporting on stories such as Wayne Rooney’s displeasure in Manchester, Luis Suarez nattering on about a switch away from the Kop and Cesc Fabregas’ non-mover to sure up Man United’s midfield with a move from the Nou Camp. And now, The Guardian newspaper is reporting this evening that Tottenham want £88million plus Alvaro Morata in exchange for Bale. Morata is a highly-rated 20-year-old striker at Real Madrid who promises to be one for the future.

Most notably, ever since the last kick of the 2012-13 season, the future of Tottenham’s Gareth Bale has been under scrutiny, with ongoing posts deliberating his future with a suspected move to Real Madrid on the cards.

Cutting the story short, Andre Villas-Boas wants Bale at White Hart Lane, Bale has apparently spoken of his desire to play in the Spanish capital and chairman Daniel Levy simply will not budge.

This is a story that suggests business is a childish form of game-play with ongoing spouts from North London and reports from Madrid suggesting that movement is swinging from one capital to the next.  Real have officially submitted a world-record bid whilst Levy is holding out and ready to draw his revolver at any future requests.

The question is simply this… is Gareth Bale a better player than Cristiano Ronaldo?  There are concerns over Bale’s aptitude to fit within the Bernabeu fold.  With an 85,000 capacity seater-stadium and a rise in expectancy from Los Blancos fans, it has been publicly announced that Bale may fall into crisis in similar fashion to former Spurs team-mate Luka Modric.  At Tottenham, Bale is the big fish but Madrid pose a bigger pond that has seen the likes of Modric feeling bloated from failing to establish himself as a regular first team choice.

The scale of Bale’s profile over the past twelve months is enormous in comparison to the Croat’s but with the likes of Ronaldo, Ozil, Isco and company, competition for places will be intense.  Spanish soccer boils a different kettle of fish that has seen the likes of Fabregas experience difficulty in reaching their pinnacle in the land of the glorious pass and move game.  The proposition Florentino Perez offers is what dreams are made of due to the calibre of talent Madrid have displayed throughout their history alongside a cabinet of silverware that only leave clubs such as Spurs in a trance.

Whilst some support Levy’s tactics, others have politely branded the business tycoon as a raving madman.  Clubs such as Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester United have snapped the hands off Real in order to receive world-record fees for their most prized assets.  Nevertheless, despite Levy’s ruthless stance on the move, many believe that Madrid’s monopoly approach will help them get their man, as they seem to have a gift of being able to do so through the power of money.

The nine-time European champions have seemingly tried their best to reason with the Lilywhites by offering gifted winger Angel Di Maria and impressive full-back Fabio Coentrao as part of the deal.  Despite the appeal here, should Spurs pull-off a deal for Valencia striker Roberto Soldado and recruit a promising replacement for the departed Steven Caulker, keeping Bale on the cards could prove pivotal to Spurs’ top four hopes for 2013-14.

Aside the debate of whether Bale is worth between £85-125m, the media will persistently align the Welshman’s path by reporting the goods, whilst the odds on him boarding a plane to Spain continue to work their way in favor of Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Of course, only time will tell despite the transfer manual favoring the planet’s richest clubs.  Bale’s maturity will also be tested, especially if a deal fails to materialize.

  1. Pete Q says:

    This would be a smart move. But when Morata’s contract runs out in 2015 (2 years), more than likely he’s going to return to Spain.

    Why would “Real Madrid’s future #9″ stay in Tottenham, when he could go back to Madrid?

  2. Yespage says:

    This article sites two rumors, I mean fabrications, as truth. Then goes on talking about the mythology the fabrications mean.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      Tottenham Hotspur have issued no public statements to deny that the stories are not true. Plus, when Andre Villas-Boas was asked whether Real Madrid had made an offer for Gareth Bale, the Tottenham manager refused to comment.

      It’s time for Tottenham Hotspur to let the fans know what the truth really is. Otherwise all we have to go on is what is being reported by reputable media publications.
