Tottenham won't be messed around by Real Madrid over 'Bale installments' push

Tottenham owner Joe Lewis is ready to play hardball with Real Madrid if they insist on paying Gareth Bale's transfer fee in installments The Mail on Sunday says Lewis will not settle for less than £100million in cash for his star man.

He knows Real president Florentino Perez is under massive pressure to land Bale for Madrid and may try to negotiate payment of the transfer fee in installments to avoid falling foul of the financial fair play rules.

But if the Spaniards want five years to complete payment, Spurs could try to push the transfer fee up to £120m.
