Real Madrid legend Zidane: £60M not enough to keep Bale at Spurs

Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane believes Tottenham cannot price themselves out of selling Gareth Bale. Zidane the newly-crowned PFA Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year has been the best performer in the world this year and fully expects a big offer to arrive this summer.

He said: "After the season he has just had - and still being so young of course Gareth Bale is going to be one of the most expensive players in the world if he decides to move.

"Tottenham could command £40million, £50m, maybe even £60m for him. It is a lot of money - but there are maybe three or four teams in the world that can pay that sort of transfer fee - and it wont put them off.

"They would be getting the best player in Europe this season - and he is at an age where he can still play at the top for another ten years. What I like about him is that he has this electric pace - but also a big footballing brain to go with it. That is very rare.

"A player like Bale can be the difference between a big club winning the league or Champions League."
