Tottenham’s asking price could prove beyond Perez and Real Madrid.

Florentino Perez has hinted that Real Madrid may struggle to afford Tottenham’s Gareth Bale this summer.

The La Liga outfit have been aggressively pursuing the 24-year-old, who reportedly wants to quit White Hart Lane for the Spanish capital.

Real reportedly had an £86m (€100m) world-record bid rejected by the North London outfit but Perez is said to have met Spurs chairman Daniel Levy in Miami on Tuesday night to continue negotiations.

Various UK newspapers claimed Levy demanded £100m straight cash for the Welshman, who scored 21 Premier League goals last season.

But when asked about Bale making a mega-money move to the Santiago Bernabeu, Perez hinted that even £86m, more than the £80m Real paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo, is too much for one player.

“I don’t talk about players that don’t belong to us (Real Madrid) and €100M is too much for any player,” Perez told ESPN.
