Gareth Bale could become the most expensive football player in history, with reports that Real Madrid will pay Tottenham up to £100m to sign the Wales star.
That would eclipse the £80m the Spanish giants paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo.
These are football's five biggest transfer fees to date:
- Cristiano Ronaldo - £80m - Manchester United to Real Madrid, 2009
- Zlatan Ibrahimovic - £60.1m - Inter Milan to Barcelona, 2009
- Kaka - £56.1m - AC Milan to Real Madrid, 2009
- Edison Cavani - £55m - Napoli to Paris Saint-Germain, 2013
- Radamel Falcao - £51m - Atletico Madrid to Monaco, 2013
