The Guardian are reporting that Gareth Bale is set to sign a new contract worth £150,000 a week.
There has already been plenty of speculation over Bale’s future at Tottenham, but according to the report Bale is set to pen a deal which is expected to include a release clause for bids over £50m that can be triggered at the end of next season.
The release clause would price out many clubs from luring Bale away from White Hart Lane – but the fact is simple, we want Bale to be playing Champions League football at our club. If Bale is to pledge his future to us for another season it would represent a massive boost – the ball is then in Levy’s court, strengthen the squad to get into the competition we crave or risk losing our star players.
Andre Villas-Boas is set to meet with Daniel Levy and Joe Lewis over the course of the next week while Spurs take on the Jamaican national team on Thursday in a post-season Caribbean tour.
Bale has travelled with the rest of the Spurs squad for the trip and he should feature in the friendly y at the Thomas A Robinson National stadium on Nassau island.
AVB told The Guardian: “You have to hold on to your best assets. Gareth is travelling with the team. This is an opportunity for him to touch that fan base that he has around the world, so we are looking forward to him coming and competing. All of our players will be coming down. We have a few developmental players and we hope to bring them all so that they can get the experience.”
