Spurs chief Daniel Levy is prepared to allow Gareth Bale to leave for Real Madrid but only if they get a world-record fee and a player.
Levy has made it clear all summer that he does not want Bale to move on from White Hart Lane and that had appeared to match the player's stance earlier in the summer.
But things have changed since the pre-season tour of Hong Kong, where Bale apparently let it be known he wants to speak to Real Madrid about a move.
Spurs have been pushing for the Welshman to sign a new contract and they remain very firmly in the driving seat over the player's future, with Levy ready to demand a massive fee if he is going to be persuaded to sell. The latest suggestion is £85million up front, plus a player, just to persuade Tottenham to enter into talks.
Defender Fabio Coentrao and Argentina winger Angel di Maria are reportedly the players who are currently being offered as part of the package to entice Bale to the Bernabeu.
