Bale: I couldn't say no to Barca or Real

Tottenham midfielder Gareth Bale has admitted he wouldn't turn down a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid if the Spanish giants came calling in the summer.

The Welsh winger is one of the hottest properties in Europe and has fuelled speculation over his future by conceding a move to Spain would be too good to refuse.

Bale has been linked with a big-money transfer away from White Hart Lane this summer and is also high on the wish lists of both Manchester City and Inter Milan.

But manager Harry Redknapp and chairman Daniel Levy are desperate to keep hold of their prize asset, who joined Spurs from Southampton for £7million in 2007.

Bale was again the star of the show as Tottenham moved level with Arsenal and five points clear of Chelsea with a 3-1 victory over Swansea at the weekend.

And while admitting interest in a move to La Liga, Bale insists he remains focused on Tottenham's fight for Champions League qualification.

"If you are talking about Barcelona or Real Madrid, two of the biggest clubs in the world, then it's a bit like Harry and England, it's a once-in-a-lifetime dream," he told the Daily Telegraph.

"If you said to any young player that you could play for Barcelona or Real would they turn it down? Probably not.

"If a bid was accepted you would obviously have to seriously consider it. But that has not happened so, at the moment, I'm just concentrating on Tottenham."
