Football icon Zinedine Zidane said Gareth Bale’s high price tag won’t prevent bidders interest.
Zidane, now Real Madrid’ director of football, warned Tottenham Hotspur that not even a 60-million pound asking price will put interested clubs off from trying to acquire the 23-year-old winger.
Seen at White Hart Lane a number of times this campaign, the legendary Frenchman 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.
As quoted by the Daily Mirror, Zidane said: “Tottenham could command 40 million pounds, 50 million pounds, maybe even 60 million pounds for him.”
He added: “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.”
Zidane also stated that Bale is the best player in Europe this season and predicts 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,” he continued.
