Bale Bids Spurs Teammates Farewell as Real Move Looms, Sun Says

Aug. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Gareth Bale bid farewell to his Tottenham teammates as he prepares to join Real Madrid, the Sun reported.

Real is closing in on a world-record 95 million-pound ($145 million) move for the Welsh winger, who yesterday said good-bye to coach Andre Villas Boas and Spurs players prior to their departure for an exhibition game in Monaco, the Sun said. Several players asked Bale to sign shirts for them, the newspaper said.

Bale, 24, reiterated his desire to leave Tottenham in a meeting with club chairman Daniel Levy this week and Real coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed yesterday talks are ongoing, the Sun said.
