Bale Contract Leak Alleges Real Madrid, Tottenham Transfer Clause

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly have a first refusal option up until June 2019 should Real Madrid receive a bid for Gareth Bale from an English club.

As reported by Juan Ignacio Garcia-Ochoa and Pablo Polo of Marca, the Football Leaks website has released a set of documents claiming to show the Welshman’s contract with the Santiago Bernabeu side. And among many interesting details, it’s suggested Spurs can act as an obstacle to any Premier League rival looking to sign Bale. 

“Tottenham covered themselves against the possibility of Real Madrid selling Bale to a fellow Premier League side,” write Garcia-Ochoa and Polo. “Until the 30th June 2019, Spurs have the right of first refusal on any bid for the Welshman, a condition that expires 72 hours after Real Madrid inform the North Londoners of any offers received.”

The clause’s very existence offers new light on the many rumours linking Manchester United to the forward. According to Jonathan Northcroft of the Sunday Times, the Red Devils had been plotting a £90 million summer move for Bale, although this report surfaced before it was confirmed Real would be serving a one-year transfer ban from the summer.

It seems, should United move for Bale, Spurs would have first say over the deal.

Bale has been a success since moving from White Hart Lane to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Although some would argue the Welshman still has some way to go to live up to the tag of the most expensive player in the game’s history, this alleged contract leak casts aspersions over the exact amount Bale cost too.

Javier Hernandez and Carlos Forjanes of AS write Bale cost Real more than €100 million: “The six-page document reveals that, under Madrid’s preferred payment plan of instalments, the price was €99,749,542 (plus a solidarity contribution of €1,015,875). In total, €100,759,418, more than the €96 million that they spent on signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.”

Hernandez and Forjanes also report that as part of the transfer it’s claimed Los Blancos abandoned the rights to any amounts owed for Tottenham’s capture of Rafael van der Vaart.

Since joining the Madrid giants Bale has endured some ups and downs and while he’s currently sidelined with an injury, the current term is the one in which he’s showcased his very best form. Already this season he has notched 13 goals and eight assists in 15 La Liga appearances.

At the moment it looks very unlikely he’ll be going anywhere, given his form and that Real, even if they did chose to cash in, wouldn’t be able to bring in a replacement until the summer of 2017. Spurs’ reported clause, even though they probably wouldn’t be able to afford the price needed to prise Bale away from Madrid, would only serve to complicate matters for any potential suitors.
