Real Madrid have been revealed as Gareth Bale’s mystery suitors according to the Sunday Mirror.
Wales boss John Toshack had claimed over the weekend that a sizeable offer had been tabled for the left-sided player, but refused to name the club involved.
But it appears that the Spanish giants were responsible for the attempted transfer, which was rejected out of hand by Tottenham.
However, it seems Jose Mourinho is planning to come back in January with a larger bid for Bale, who has gone from the brink of a Championship loan deal to becoming one of the most important players for Tottenham in eight months.
Daniel Levy has become insistent that Spurs are not happy selling on their best players to the top clubs, and is determined to change that ‘feeder club’ mentality.
So a bid for Bale may not be welcomed again, with the Welshman tied down to Spurs for another four years.
It is good to see Levy take this stand, having seen our better players poached by higher ranked sides in the past and Bale will be key to any success Spurs have in the future.
