Manchester United are reportedly planning a summer move for Gareth Bale but have been put off by Spurs £70million asking price.
It has been reported that United chief executive David Gill has approached Spurs chairman Daniel Levy in regards to a summer move for the Welsh winger.
However, Spurs hope to tie Bale down to a new long-term contract and have told United it will take a bid in the region of £70m to convince them to cash in on the 23-year-old.
It has been suggested that Bale will remain with Spurs as long as they secure Champions League football for next season, although it remains to be seen whether or not he will sign a new deal at White Hart Lane.
If United do decide to make a move in the summer they are likely to face plenty of competition as Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester City are all ready to battle for the Spurs star's signature.
