Zidane: Bale price tag won't deter bidders

The Real Madrid director of football believes that suitors will be willing to pay 60 million pounds for the Welshman, whom he feels can make the difference for a club.
Real Madrid director of football Zinedine Zidane has warned Tottenham that not even a 60 million pound asking price will put interested clubs off bidding for Gareth Bale.

The legendary Frenchman has been spotted at White Hart Lane a number of times this campaign and believes that the newly crowned PFA Player and Young Player of the Year could prove the pivotal difference between a club winning the league and Champions League.

"Tottenham could command 40 million pounds, 50 million pounds, maybe even 60 million pounds for him," Zidane is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror. "It is a lot of money but there are maybe three or four teams in the world that can pay that sort of transfer fee and it won't put them off. A player like Bale can be the difference between a big club winning the league or Champions League.

"They would be getting the best player in Europe this season and he is at an age where he can still play at the top for another 10 years. What I like about him is that he has this electric pace but also a big footballing brain to go with it. That is very rare."
