Real Madrid outcast Bale passes Tottenham medical

Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale has passed a Tottenham medical.

Efe reports the 31-year-old has received the green light to move after health checks at Real's Valdebebas training ground.

Real are keen to get Bale off the wage bill — but are willing to continue to pay up to 50 per cent of his astonishing £650,000-a-week salary.

Bale, whose Bernabeu contract runs out in the summer of 2022, won four Champions League titles with the Spanish champions but has played just 100 minutes since football resumed in June.

Spurs appear sure to beat Manchester United in the hunt for Bale.

The Sun reports Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is as desperate as manager Jose Mourinho to tie up a £20million season's loan for the wantaway Real Madrid attacker.
