Real Madrid ready to make 50m bid for Spurs star

Real Madrid are reportedly ready to make an fresh attempt at signing Tottenham winger Gareth Bale.

The Sun reports that the Spanish giants could include Portuguese left-back Fabio Coentrao in a 50million deal for Bale.

Current Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas tried to sign Coentrao for Chelsea last year.

Villas-Boas also wanted to include the 24-year-old in the deal that took Luka Modric from White Hart Lane to Real Madrid.

Bale signed a new five-year contract with Spurs in August.
