Gareth Bale has agreed personal terms with Real Madrid ahead of his £86m record-breaking move from Tottenham, according to BBC reports.
It is claimed the Spanish giants are still in discussions over the fee for the 24-year-old forward, with a bid of £86m already submitted to Spurs.
In addition to the world-record offer, which beats the £80m paid by Real Madrid to Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009, the Spanish club have also made an alternative bid of £70m - a one-off bid for the Wales international.
Bale, who joined Tottenham in a £10m deal from Southampton in 2007, was named player of the year by both the Professional Footballers' Association and Football Writers last season after scoring 26 goals for Spurs.
He has been linked with a move to Real all summer, with Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas saying on Wednesday the transfer "could happen very, very soon".
