The Tottenham star remains the Spaniards’ number one transfer target, and the club are refusing to rule out the possibility of signing him until the transfer window officially slams shut.
The news will come as a blow to Tottenham, who thought they had done enough to convince the Welshman to stay for at least another season. Now they are fearing a late bid from Madrid may turn their star man’s head, and not leave the club with enough time to find a replacement.
Real Madrid remain confident of pulling off a deal, with a source close to Real president Florentino Perez saying: “We will try to sign Bale until the day the summer market closes. He is our top long-term priority.
“If we can sign players like Zidane, Beckham and Ronaldo, we can sign Bale.”
Bale proved once again to be Tottenham’s star man last season, bagging 26 goals on course to winning both the PFA Player and Young Player of the Year award.
Tottenham insist that the player is not for sale, and value him close to the £100million mark.
