Santiago Bernabeu club can meet Spurs’ demands, says Calderon.
Real Madrid can meet Tottenham’s asking price for Gareth Bale, according to former Los Blancos president Ramon Calderon.
Bale scored twice in Spurs’ 3-2 win over West Ham, including a stunning last-minute winner, to make it nine goals in his last five appearances for Spurs.
The Welshman has now scored 19 gaols in all competitions this season and six in five successive Premier League games.
The 23-year-old has been linked with big-money moves to Real Madrid and Barcelona but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is a notorious negotiator, known for demanding big money for the club’s star players.
Even so, Calderon believes Real Madrid would not have a problem meeting Tottenham’s hefty asking-price for the former Southampton star.
“He’s a fantastic player. He’s one of those players that you would always like to have in your team – no doubt,” Calderón told talkSPORT.
“It’s true that Real Madrid have spent a lot of money in the last two or three years, but we are in a position to pay the money that Tottenham will ask for.
“Not any amount of money, there are always limits in a sense, but Real Madrid have a very healthy economic situation so I think they could sign him.”
Spurs signed a strategic partnership with Real in the summer following Luka Modric’s £27m switch from White Hart Lane to the Bernabeu.
The club have denied that the agreement entitles the La Liga giants to first option on any of their stars and no players have moved between the clubs since the Croatian.
