Madrid after Tottenham Star Gareth Bale
Published : 19 Oct 2012 09:01:16
Gareth Bale could be off to Spain – as former team mate Luke Modric has urged the Welsh winger to join him at Madrid.
Modric, 27, moved to Real Madrid from Totthenham Hotspur last summer in a £30million move – which saw Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur go into 'partnership' with each other – courtesy of Daniel Levy.
This partnership involves the two clubs working together in respect of players, coaching and commercial relationships. Now, although the partnership will see youth and fringe players arrive at Tottenham – as well as pre-season friendlies which will see Tottenham profit emphatically – the partnership ensures that Madrid have first refusal on players at White Hart Lane – such as Bale.
Modric played against his former team mate Bale, 23, last night in Croatia's World Cup Qualifier victory against Wales.
He said: “Gareth should player for Real Madrid and I hope he'll come. It would be amazing and I think he can – hes a good enough player.”
The idea of having Ronaldo and Bale marauding down each flank will be fantastic for Mourinho and all Madridista's out there – although Bale will no doubt require a 'Galactico' fee for his services.
It is believed that Tottenham will demand around £40-45million pound for Gareth Bale.
Since the night at The San Siro where Bale scored a hatrick and single handedly almost drew Tottenham back into the game against Inter Milan in their debut campaign in The Champions League – big things have been expected – with many people believing he is 'too big' for a little club like Spurs.
Cristiano Ronaldo, in 2009, was the last Galactico signed by Perez.
January 2012 could be time for a new Galactico to join Madrid.
