Daniel Levy rejects world rejects world record Real bid for Gareth Bale.
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy will allow Gareth Bale to join Real Madrid for £96m – but not until next summer, according to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.
Los Merengues have reportedly tabled the world record offer but Levy has rejected it, insisting Spurs’ prized asset must remain in north London for one more season.
Bale reportedly feels cheated by Levy, who is said to have promised the Welshman he could leave White Hart Lane if a Champions League club came calling.
The forward is considering holding a press conference this weekend to express his disappointed at the chairman and publicly state his desire to join Real.
The 24-year-old is thought to have already told Levy he wants to leave in private.
It is worth noting that Cadena Ser is a Valencia-based radio station, who were consistently first to break any developments relating to Roberto Soldado’s protracted transfer to Tottenham from Los Che, which was finally completed on Thursday.
But there is little reason to suggest the organisation would be on top of any developments relating to Real’s pursuit of Bale, so it would be wise to take this story with an almighty pinch of salt.
