Barcelona have reached an agreement with Tottenham winger Gareth Bale and are set to pay €40 million (£32 million) to swoop him into the Camp Nou.
The Catalan giants are desperate to strengthen the left-back position due to the long-term absence of Éric Abidal, and the Welshman has been their long-term overwhelming favourite target.
According to the program 'Futboleros' from Marca TV, the 23 year-old has said 'yes' to a £4 million tax-free five-year deal. Reports suggest the Blaugrana have beaten the competition of Chelsea and Manchester City, who were also keen on luring the player.
Barça will now hope that themselves and Spurs shake hands over a £32 million deal, with the player having a role to make in order to convince the Londoners to let him go. If the switch is completed, Bale is set to become the first signing for new Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova, set to replace Pep Guardiola at the end of the season.
