Gareth Bale’s future looks like it could finally be resolved this weekend.
Just a day after Madrid mistakenly listed Bale as a Madrid player on their official online store, pictures have now emerged of a stage being erected inside the Bernabeu.
It is a similar stage to the one that was used in 2009, when the Spanish giants unveiled their world record signing, Cristiano Ronaldo.
It has become a tradition for Madrid to use a stage to unveil big signings, with Kaka and Karim Benzema also being introduced to the fans via the big stage.
The exact details of the Bale deal is still unknown and is likely to be kept a secret until Bale officially signs for Madrid.
There have been plenty of rumours concerning the deal, such as Real Madrid players being sold to Spurs alongside a huge sum of money.
This saga has dragged on all summer but it finally looks like Madrid are about to get their man, despite the best efforts of Spurs’ chairman, Daniel Levy, to try and convince Bale to stay.
Whatever happens this weekend, you can guarantee that the money involved in this deal is going to be CRAZY!!!
