Despite everyone thinking that a deal had been done and dusted for Real Madrid to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s Gareth Bale, the BBC is reporting this morning that the Spanish club have made two separate offers for Bale for the White Hart Lane club to consider. And the Spanish club are waiting to see which one Tottenham will accept.
Option 1 is £86million “with structured payments over three to four years, which would surpass the world record fee Real paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo (£80m).”
Option 2 is a one-time, up front payment of £70million for Bale. For this option, Real Madrid may offer a player to sweeten the deal.
If you’re Tottenham Hotspur, which option would you select?
Earlier this week, it had been revealed that Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid had agreed a world transfer record fee of £85million for Gareth Bale to move to Spain, according to a report in the Spanish media.
