Florentino Perez willing to wait until new manager is appointed before making an offer for the Spurs midfielder.
Real Madrid have re-affirmed their desire to sign Tottenham Hotspur Gareth Bale this summer, but president Florentino Perez has says they will look to appoint a new manager before making a bid for the forward.
Madrid are still in search of a new head-coach to replace Jose Mourinho at the Bernabeu this summer, with former PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti rumoured to be Perez’s first choice.
Perez again admitted he was interested in Bale, 23, but stressed he will wait to appoint a new manager before deciding whether to bid for the Wales international.
“Madrid always want the best. Tottenham is a very amicable club, but first we must see who our new coach will be and after that we will begin to arrange our new squad,” the Spaniard is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“We are not going to talk too much about Bale because he plays at a very amicable club and they will be annoyed by too much talk about him I know their chairman well and he doesn’t like things like that.
“But I repeat, we have a long list, but there will be one particular player, of course.”
Madrid have been chasing the Welsh star throughout the summer, and are willing to pay £85m for the player, which would be a world record fee, eclipsing the £80m Real paid Man United for Critstiano Ronaldo in 2009.
