Madrid eye Bale closure

Real Madrid are reportedly determined to successfully wrap up negotiations for Tottenham’s Gareth Bale inside the next two weeks.

Los Blancos, who this week begin the second stage of preseason with a tour of the US, are reportedly keen to bring in the Welshman before they return to Spain.

Madrid, who apparently have had a bid of over €93m rejected for the 24-year-old, are believed to still hold hope that the player’s intention is to leave Spurs and play for them.

Whilst it is seen as an issue that could drag through to the end of the transfer window, reports in Spain from more than one outlet have Florentino Perez’s club as keen to sign up the player before the conclusion of Madrid’s US tour, which ends on August 11.
