Bale Becoming ‘Increasingly Frustrated’ After Madrid Table Record £85m Offer

By on July 30, 2013

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Real Madrid have tabled a world record bid for Gareth Bale.

Gareth Bale is becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of movement over his future after Real Madrid tabled a world record £85m offer for the Tottenham Hotspur attacker, according to Sky Sports News.

The Welshman’s future has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks with the Spaniard’s making a public their desire to lure him to the Bernabeu this summer.

It now appears they’ve made a formal move with Sky Sports reporting that Madrid submitted a world record £85m bid last week, with the offer being a straight cash deal that didn’t include any players in exchange.

The report claims that Bale has been made aware of the mammoth offer and is becoming increasingly frustrated with the situation, with the bid believed to still be on the table as Tottenham are yet to officially respond.

Spurs have always maintained the 24-year-old would not be sold this summer and chairman Daniel Levy is currently away in Miami on holiday, so the potential deal is at a stalemate.

Bale and the rest of the Tottenham squad are now back from their pre-season tour of Asia and are set to return to training on Wednesday, so he may seek talks with manager Andre Villas-Boas sometime this week to clarify what’s going on.

The former Southampton trainee has so far kept his feelings to himself and he’s made no public declaration about wanting to leave. However, perhaps worryingly for Spurs fans, the player has also failed to make any public declaration that he wants to stay at White Hart Lane.

    Who cares if Bale is frustrated so are we frustrated at him leaving. You can’t blame Levy for wanting to get the most money he can.

    Where did that quote ‘increasingly frustrated’ come from? Marca by any chance?

      Beat me to it 😀

      Real/Marca say: “we have a right to any player we goddam want and it is an affront to the Divine Order if any resists us or even tries to get a good deal. Gareth Bale is increasingly frustrated but we do not know this because we are illegally in contact with him/are just making this hokey BS up .

      Shame on RM for their behaviour and shame on the British media for accepting their rubbish as definitive proof.

    I’m sure Bale is happy generally at Spurs – clearly enjoys his football and role in the side, and equally clearly gets on with the manager and teammates. I imagine he’d like to earn a bit more and I suspect Spurs would no doubt put that on the table for him. If I were him, I wouldn’t want my agent meddling, and so I’d just announce, “I’m very happy at Spurs. If Madrid make an offer that makes sense for Spurs and is accepted by the club then of course, it would be an honour to play for Madrid. But otherwise, I am fully focussed on winning with Spurs.” Diplomatic, probably honest, and would lead either to a great deal between Spurs, Madrid (who could make a fortune marketing him), and himself, or to a better contract at Spurs where he is clearly happy to play, and still the possibility he could go to Madrid in a year’s time!

    Where and whom did you get this “Bale becoming increasingly frustrated ” line form? Let me think, a horses ass no doubt. Yet another arsehole masquerading as a would be journalist in the know.

    This website writing is easy.Write a headline and quote the source as Sky.Bank on readers being too bored or too stupid to notice that it states “the report claims” Blimey,That’s close to insider trading. Seriously not on iota of substantiation or attributable source.Hans Christian Anderson would make a great sports “journalist” toay. Mind you he wouldn’t claim it was true.
