There has been a twist in the story of where Wales footballer Gareth Bale will be playing next season.
Spanish giants Real Madrid are favourites to sign the Cardiff-born star for what could be a world record fee but Spurs are now considering an offer from another unnamed club.
From Madrid, sports reporter Ashleigh Crowter has been finding out about the local reaction to the speculation.
He talked to Helen Jones, a translator based in the Spanish capital, Blanca Barranco, who is married to a Welshman, and journalist Filippo Ricci, who writes for La Gazzetta dello Sport.
