According to a report in Marca (as relayed by One Football), Real Madrid are prepared to allow Gareth Bale to seal a permanent move to Tottenham Hotspur on a free transfer.

It was initially reported that the North Londoners were close to reaching an agreement to sign Bale on a season-long loan deal, with the club paying half of the winger’s bumper £600,000-a-week wages (The Athletic).

AFP then suggested that Spurs could potentially look to complete a permanent transfer for the 31-year-old instead of a loan.

Marca have now backed up that claim as they report that Madrid are pushing for a permanent transfer, something that Bale would also prefer.

The report reveals that negotiations are on-going between the two clubs and the winger might end up joining on a free.

Rather than receiving a transfer fee upfront, it is asserted that Real Madrid would only receive payment for the Wales international if various performance-related bonuses are met during his time in North London.

Spurs Web Opinion

While I can understand why Real Madrid and Bale will be keen on completing a permanent transfer, I suspect Levy would prefer a loan move as it would come with comparatively lower risk. However, if Real Madrid are willing to allow him to leave without a transfer fee, perhaps a permanent deal could be tempting for Spurs.
