The Welshman remains No.1 priority for the Spanish giants.
Real Madrid continue their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur ace Gareth Bale as it looks increasingly more likely a world record bid will be placed for the 24-year-old.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has his hands well and truly full trying to convince Bale to stay and also keeping Madrid at bay until the transfer window is closed.
As the Daily Mail reports Levy has flown home early from a holiday in Florida in order to have further talks with the winger, having initially spoken to the Wales international during Tottenham’s mini tournament in Hong Kong.
Bale missed both matches on that tour – against Sunderland and South China – and now the chairman faces over a month of pressure from the capital of Spain.
However, according to the Mirror Levy is not going to be budged by any price that Madrid offer and will also remain silent with the player.
Last summer Spurs essentially had their hand forced to sell Luka Modric to the Santiago Bernabeu and are determined not to repeat that difficult time.
Not that it will stop Los Blancos, as reports in the Sun state that the La Liga runners-up are preparing an astonishing deal worth £95m for Bale.
The club will pay a cash fee of £51m and then just to sweeten the deal, will also include Angel Di Maria and Fabio Coentrao – two players that cost Madrid over £50m between them when bought from Benfica in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
The current market value of the duo would take the bid up to £95m and technically of course becoming a world record; topping the £80m the Spaniards paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo four years ago.
Along with the pair, according to the Daily Star Spurs will also go in for Paris Saint-Germain’s Javier Pastore with their new found wealth.
Although the Argentine plays more centrally than Bale, Pastore is another attack-minded midfielder and having failed to truly impress at the Parc des Princes, could be available for around £25m.
