Real Madrid launch charm offensive for Spurs star Bale

Real Madrid are keeping their No11 shirt free for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

The Mirror says Real Madrid have stepped up their campaign to land £85million-rated Bale - by reserving their no.11 shirt for him.

In tactics similar to those that saw them land another Tottenham star, Luka Modric, last summer, the Spanish giants are already describing Bale as 'The Eleventh Galactico'.

Real's No.11 shirt is free, as it was worn last season by ex-Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho, who recently completed a transfer to Monaco.
