Bale could still leave Spurs

ESPN understands that Gareth Bale could still be allowed to leave Tottenham this summer if the club are offered a massive fee for the winger.

Bale, 22, has been linked with a move to one of Europe's elite clubs but recently signed a new White Hart Lane contract that includes no release clause.

That deal, though, will not stop Spurs selling Bale should they receive an offer of anything approaching the £80 million Real Madrid paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo.

An ESPN source said: "Yes, Bale might well have signed a new four-year contract, but that won't stop a club making a big enough offer if they wanted the player badly enough - and Spurs are not going to turn down £80 million or even €80 million.

"Of course that sounds a lot for Bale, but you have to consider that he is 22, and was Ronaldo worth that high a fee when he was 22? He wasn't.

"If you consider that Andy Carroll cost £35 million, than it is easy to see why Spurs would place such a massive value on Bale."

Bale's renewal comes at a time when no team was believed to be willing to meet Tottenham's valuation of the player. However, there are still reports linking Bale with a move away from the club this summer.
