Bale agent speaks of Real Madrid move


The agent of Spurs start Gareth Bale has said his client would be ‘honoured’ if Real Madrid wanted to speak to him about a possible transfer to the Bernabeu.

Speaking to the Futboleros show on MarcaTV, Jonathan Barnett said no discussions had taken place with the Spanish giants, and nothing would change unless Los Blancos were given permission by Spurs to do so.

The Welshman, who scored 21 goals for the north London side in the Premier League this season, has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent days.

Barnett said:  “If Florentino is interested in Gareth Bale, then that would be an honour and we would listen, but his contract is with Tottenham. We are not free to talk to anyone.”

He also added that Bale – who won the PFA Player of the Year Award, PFA Young Player of the Year Award and FWA Footballer of the Year Award this year – was a better player than Brazilian playmaker Neymar, who recently signed for Barcelona.

“He is a much better player than Neymar, he has proven himself in one of the best leagues in the world, the Premier League. Whatever Neymar cost – Gareth Bale is worth more,” he stated.
