Gareth Bale could cost £200m - report

Real Madrid may end up spending more than £200 million on bringing Gareth Bale to the Bernabeu, according to a report in the Telegraph.

Gareth Bale's future at Tottenham has been the subject of speculation
Real Madrid are believed to be ready to smash the world transfer record to land Gareth Bale.

• Rigg: Bale saga rumbles on

Bale, 24, is Madrid’s No. 1 transfer target this summer but Spurs want Los Blancos to smash the world record fee in order to land their Welsh talisman.

The saga has dragged on for months, and it’s thought that Spurs will only opt to sell if an offer of over £100 million is made.

But that could only amount to half the cost of the overall transfer, with the Telegraph claiming Bale would be paid £7.8 million a year in wages over a six-year deal. With Spanish tax laws demanding 52% be paid to the government, the winger’s salary would be doubled to ensure he still takes home £150,000 a week.

Agent’s fees and other payments will take the full total of the transfer to over £200 million.

The Telegraph suggests any potential deal is still a long way off, despite Bale himself reportedly asking to leave White Hart Lane and Tottenham’s non-executive director Sir Keith Mills admitting on Tuesday it would be hard to keep him.

"We very much want Bale to stay," Mills told the Evening Standard. “[But] If a player is desperate to leave, it’s very difficult to force him to stay. We’ve seen it in other clubs. Even if he has a contract, you can’t force somebody to play for you."

Madrid broke their own world transfer record when they signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United for £80 million in 2009.
