- Match Analysis
According to the Sunday Mirror, Madrid have now revealed that it will take a massive bid of £85m to even tempt him away from the Bernabeu.
It could make way for an all out bidding war from English teams, with former club Tottenham rumoured to want a reunion, while Chelsea have also expressed interest.
The 28-year-old left White Hart Lane four years ago for a then world record fee but has been out of action since September with hamstring and calf troubles.
His injury meant he could only watch as Wales crashed out of the World Cup qualifiers in a 1-0 defeat to Ireland.
Bale isn’t expected to return until the new year and with Real reported to have set aside £200m for a ‘Galactico’ signing in the summer, he may seek pastures new for guaranteed first-team football.
Real Madrid are apparently interested in David De Gea, Harry Kane and Eden Hazard, so they may use Bale as bait in a potential swap deal.
