Tottenham Request Pre-Season Friendly Against Real Madrid Because Of Gareth Bale Clause

Tottenham are set to play Real Madrid in a pre-season friendly as part of an agreement from the Gareth Bale signing.

For the second consecutive season, Real Madrid plan to hold their pre-season in Valdebebas.

The North London club have, meanwhile, reminded Los Blancos of a clause from the signing of Bale in 2013, which requires them to play a friendly game in London.


Gareth Bale has one year remaining on his contract and everything signifies that the Welshman is on his way out of Madrid following the conclusion of his contract.

The game is set to be played in part of the agreement made between the two clubs for the transfer of Gareth Bale.

The absence of tours, both in the United States and in Asian countries is another of the sporting and economic obstacles that large European clubs have encountered due to the Covid-19 pandemic.


Pre-season tours are an important source of income and a key preparation tool ahead of the season commencing.

Yet teams are now constrained to playing friendlies in European countries, with income considerably less than the common fee.

Despite this, sooner or later the aforementioned friendly will have to be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.


The prospect of hosting multi Champions League winners, Real Madrid at the new London stadium as well as welcoming back their spectators is an exciting and lucrative strategy for Spurs.
