Spanish outlet AS believes Spurs ex-ace Bale has been given a £113million price tag by Real.
The Wales international is obviously a talented player which, combined with his prior stint at White Hart Lane and his uncertain status at the Bernabeu, makes him a seemingly obvious choice in terms of Spurs transfer speculation.
According to Spanish outlet AS, Los Blancos have slapped a price tag of 130 million Euros (£113million) on the 29-year-old, which they consider a fair price given the sums involved in the transfers of Philippe Coutinho, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar in recent years.
On top of that, Bale reportedly earns £26million a year before tax (around £500,000-a-week), another thing that a prospective suitor would have to deal with, although Real are supposedly willing to discuss the potential of a part-exchange deal, with Christian Eriksen said to be on their radar.
Let's break it down - Tottenham, a club that has just spent a huge sum of money on a new stadium and ran by Daniel Levy, one of the shrewdest chairmen in football, spending a triple-figure amount of money plus exorbitant wages on a player who'll be 30 next season and has suffered 22 injuries during his time at the club?
According to The Mirror, Eriksen is valued by Spurs at £95million - even if they were interested in Bale, would they really send him to Real and cough up a further £18million for an injury-prone player who turns 30 in July?
It all sounds like a bad idea, doesn't it? Hence why it's pretty unlikely that Bale back at Spurs could happen, unless Madrid lower the figures at their end by quite a bit, but even then, surely there would be some great young attacking players that could be snapped up using some of that £95m kitty in case Eriksen chooses to leave.
