Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale could be subject of a £45 million bid from Barcelona next summer, according to

The Welshman was expected to be linked with a host of European clubs this summer, however a serious ankle injury at the back end of the season has put the winger on the sidelines and out of the transfer spotlight.

However, next summer Barcelona are preparing to test Tottenham's resolve with a bid worth £45 million, despite Manchester United being interested.


“Chelsea and Manchester City are not suitors at the moment, Manchester United flirted with him but have not gone for him and he is out of Arsenal and Liverpool’s price range,” an insider told

“Most of the interest in Gareth is from the continent but he is not ready to go abroad yet and is happy to stay at Tottenham for another season.”

Following Tottenham's heroics in the Champions League, which saw them beat Inter and AC Milan, attention has swelled around Bale.

United, despite having signed Ashley Young, are still searching for a long-term replacement for Ryan Giggs.
