Spurs are willing to pay €60m for the Welsh winger which is still half of his wages at Real Madrid. His agent Jonathan Barnett, however, has called the deal “rubbish.”
Bale, 30, is not part of Zidane’s plans for the 2019/20 season although Bale has reconfirmed his full commitment to the club. Interestingly, Bale also has better career stats than his legendary boss.

Will Bale stay or will he go?
Bale has been bonding with Madrid's new signing Eden Hazard in pre-season training. Should Real Madrid not be able to land Pogba before the summer transfer window, the two of them — Bale and Hazard — could pair together to wreak havoc on defenses. Word on the street is that Real President Florentino Pérez is also trying to convince Zidane to hang on to Bale.
Gareth Bale has helped Los Blancos win four Champions League trophies, scoring one of the all-time best goals in the 2018 Champions League finals against Liverpool.
