Real Madrid have asked for first option on Tottenham star Gareth Bale, while Paris Saint Germain have also joined the hunt.
Interest in the Welshman is growing by the day with reports claiming Europe's big guns are ready to break the bank and pay in the region of £50million to land him in the summer.
Yesterday, Bayern Munich were heavily linked as the German giants look to back new boss Pep Guardiola to the hilt in the transfer market and now reports are claiming that Real want first refusal should Tottenham decide to cash in.
Real believe they have forged a good relationship with Spurs after landing Luka Modric last summer and hope that will give them the edge in the race to sign the winger.
Meanwhile, PSG also have cash to burn and will be in a strong position to bid for Bale should he leave White Hart Lane.
