Tottenham have confirmed agreement has been reached with Real Madrid for the transfer of Gareth Bale.
The club’s official Twitter account Tweeted: “The Club can announce that it has reached agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of Gareth Bale.”
The fee is said to be £86million, which is 100million Euros.
Chairman, Daniel Levy told the club’s official site, “Gareth was a player we had absolutely no intention of selling as we look to build for the future. He is a player whose career we have fostered and developed and he was only a year into his new four year contract.
“Such has been the attention from Real Madrid and so great is Gareth’s desire to join them, that we have taken the view that the player will not be sufficiently committed to our campaign in the current season.
“We have, therefore, with great reluctance, agreed to this sale and do so in the knowledge that we have an exceptionally strong squad to which we have added no fewer than seven top internationals. More importantly, we have an immense team spirit and a dressing room that is hungry for success.
“We wish Gareth all the best in the future and he shall always be welcome at the Lane.”
