The race to sign Gareth Bale has become an £80million four-way fight after Premier League big hitters Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea joined Real Madrid.

According to the Mirror, the three clubs from Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge and Etihad Stadium are ready to move in with £80million bids as soon as they are given the green light.

Real Madrid had been leading the race to sign Bale and, despite Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy’s determination to hold onto his prised asset.

The report claims Spurs are fighting a losing battle as the Santiago Bernabeu club are ready to make an initial £60million bid, though that will not be enough to convince Levy to sell.

New Manchester United manager David Moyes is looking to make his mark at the Red Devils and signing Bale would be a massive statement of ambition.

Meanwhile, both Chelsea and Manchester City are also ready to appoint new bosses and have the requisite spending power to outbid the other clubs credited with an interest in Bale.

Jose Mourinho’s likely return to Stamford Bridge is reportedly going to coincide with a £100million transfer kitty – more than enough to land Bale.

However, the report does concede it is more likely that Bale will leave White Hart Lane next season rather than this summer.

Though it does claim encouraging noises about a Real Madrid switch made by the Welshman’s agent on Spanish TV this week make Bale signing a new contract very unlikely.
