The fee for the 24-year-old is unknown and it has not yet been stated whether the price is more or less than the £80m Los Blancos paid for Cristiano Ronaldo four years ago.

It has been a deal that was a long time in the making, but was always likely to go through and after driving a hard bargain Spurs chairman Daniel Levy finally commented on the transfer.
“Gareth was a player we had absolutely no intention of selling as we look to build for the future,” Levy told the Tottenham website.
“Such has been the attention from Real Madrid and so great is Gareth’s desire to join them, that we have taken the view that the player will not be sufficiently committed to our campaign in the current season.
“We have, therefore, with great reluctance, agreed to this sale and do so in the knowledge that we have an exceptionally strong squad to which we have added no fewer than seven top internationals.
“We wish Gareth all the best in the future and he shall always be welcome at the Lane.”
Bale is expected to be presented officially as a Madrid player at midday on Monday.
