Neil Ashton of The Daily Mail is exclusively reporting that Real Madrid and Tottenham have finally thrashed out the final terms of a deal which will see Gareth Bale move to the Spanish capital.
And it's a deal which, at £86 million, will break the world record fee paid for a football player, according to Monday morning's report.
Other newspapers, both in Spain and in England, seemingly expect the transfer to be tied up soon, but none are yet reporting that it is done.
For many it may be a case of the sooner the better, with the prolonged transfer having rumbled on all summer now.
UPDATE: It's Wednesday and Gareth Bale is still not a Real Madrid player. The latest news is that he skipped training on Tuesday as he grows frustrated over the length of time the transfer has dragged on for, via football-espana.net.
As we say, any minute now...
UPDATE: It's actually still going on. We're dangerously close to the slamming shut of the transfer window and Gareth Bale remains a Tottenham player. Kind of.
The latest line from The Telegraph is that Daniel Levy continues to hold the deal up. Levy is supposedly unhappy with the way Madrid have conducted themselves, while his manager, Andre Villas-Boas, has already pretty much confirmed it's a matter of time until the deal goes through.
Please Daniel, put us out of our misery.
