09:38 AM ET 06.11 | Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale recently hinted that he was set to return to White Hart Lane where he would finish out his contract through 2016, but now a new report makes things a bit more interesting. Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid has always been linked to the 23-year-old, but now they could be willing to put together an offer that would blow away the Spurs and cause them to seriously reconsider. Real Madrid adviser Zinedine Zidane hinted that the team could be prepared to make a "record-breaking transfer offer" to bring Bale to La Liga. In order to break the transfer record, Real Madrid would need to offer Tottenham more than the 80 million pounds that they sent to Manchester United in 2009 to bring Cristiano Ronaldo on board.
