Harry Redknapp is planning on holding onto Gareth Bale in the summer, no matter what clubs think they can offer for the 21 year old.

Bale has starred for Tottenham this season, in both the Barclays Premier League and the Champions League, and in a sea of frustration and failures against Real Madrid on Tuesday night, Bale shone through for Tottenham with his raw talent.

But Redknapp has made it clear Bale will not be moving to any other clubs in the summer, with Manchester United and Inter Milan reportedly preparing bids.


"If Tottenham start selling players like Gareth Bale then you have to accept that you're never going to be a top club," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

"I'm sure the chairman, Daniel [Levy], wants to be a top four club.

"Man United, Chelsea and Arsenal do it every year, if we want to do it we have to keep improving, not selling players.

"Otherwise you'll do it one year and you might never do it again."

Manchester United were rumoured to be chasing Bale as part of a £150 million spending spree which Sir Alex Ferguson is planning for the summer. With definite Champions League experience next season on offer, it was thought Bale might head to Manchester United depending on whether Tottenham qualified for the Champions League or not.

And Inter Milan are reportedly also chasing Bale after his fantastic display against the Italian giants in the Champions League.
