Zinedine Zidane says Real Madrid will not be put off by Tottenham's asking price for Gareth Bale and hopes the player asks to leave.
Real Madrid are keen to land the winger during the close season but there have been suggestions they would be put off by Tottenham's £60million valuation of the Welshman.
However Zidane, who is sporting director at the Bernabeu, says they would be willing to stump up the cash and has urged Bale to put in a transfer request if he wishes to move on.
"I think Real Madrid have made their admiration of Gareth Bale very clear - and it has been made clear that we would not be put off by the cost of the player," Zidane told the Sunday People.
"But if Gareth feels now is the time to move then he has to have a private discussion with his club and express that he wants to leave."
