Tottenham enter Bale talks over record £170,000-a-week deal

Tottenham are in new contract talks with Gareth Bale this week.

The Mirror says boss Andre ­Villas-Boas and technical director Franco Baldini will lead the attempt to convince Bale to commit himself to White Hart Lane for at least one more ­season.

Spurs are prepared to smash their wage structure and pay £70million-rated Bale £170,000-a-week if he agrees to extend his deal.

Real Madrid and ­Manchester United are at the front of the queue for Bale . And Spurs know the two clubs will return next summer because the ­London club's ­bargaining power will ­decrease once he enters the final two years of his present deal.
