Real Madrid Transfer Update : Gareth Bale
Real Madrid want to announce the completion of Gareth Bale's transfer this weekend, and for Bale to arrive on Monday for a medical ahead of a presentation on Tuesday.
Real is already preparing for Bale’s presentation as the club’s new £85 million signing. A stage was erected in Real Madrid's 85,000 seat stadium where President Florentino Perez is planning on handing Bale his new number 11 shirt.
Madrid will have set a new world record in the transfer market for the fourth time in their history if the fee does reach £85 million. Real Madrid are willing to pay even more for Bale than they did to sign Cristiano Ronaldo for £80m from Manchester United in 2009.
