In his latest attempt to try and unsettle Gareth Bale at Tottenham Hotspur, Zinedine Zidane has hinted that Real Madrid would be prepared to break the world transfer fee record.
The former French midfielder is now Madrid’s sporting director and has been linked with a move of £85million to the Spanish giants. That fee would exceed the £80million which Madrid paid Manchester United four years ago to capture the services of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Bale is settled at Spurs, even coach Tim Sherwood has publically stated so. However it seems Zidane is up to his old tricks once again in order to land their top summer transfer target. Whether Daniel Levy could resist a fee of that amount remains to be seen.
‘The talk about Gareth Bale is not a surprise,’ Zidane told the Spanish press.
‘It is impossible to have the season he just had and not be linked with the biggest clubs in Europe.
‘If any club is going to tempt Spurs, then it will take big money – maybe even record-breaking money.
‘There are four or five clubs at the moment who have the finances not to be put off by a record-breaking fee like that.’
