Spurs’ director of football tying up loose ends with Real Madrid hierarchy…
Tottenham’s director of football Franco Baldini is currently in Madrid, finalising a £93m deal for Gareth Bale to join Los Blancos, according to respected Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
Di Marzio states that a deal will be just for cash, and will not include Portuguese left-back Fabio Coentrao, as was previously reported.
If the Bale to Real Madrid move is completed, the Welshman will become the most expensive player in history.
