Barcelona put off by 'sky-high' Spurs valuation - reports

Published Add your comment

Barcelona have reportedly decided not to follow up their interest in Gareth Bale due to Tottenham's hefty valuation of the Welshman.

According to The Mirror, Barca are long-term admirers of the 21-year-old, but have been put off by Daniel Levy's 'sky-high' price tag.

With Spurs unwilling to negotiate, Pep Guardiola will allegedly instead focus his attention on bringing Chelsea's Ashley Cole to the Nou Camp.

Bale's future at White Hart Lane has been the subject of frequent speculation since numerous swashbuckling displays for Spurs last season.

The defender-cum-winger is said to have been identified as a target for Inter Milan after he almost single-handedly destroyed the Italian giants in the Champions League last-term.

Spurs, however, have demonstrated an admirable resolve in recent months and have no intention whatsoever of selling Bale.

The north London club rejected numerous bids from Chelsea for Luka Modric during the summer, despite the Croatian stating he wanted to quit Spurs.
