Manchester United have been offered hope in their pursuit of Gareth Bale after Tottenham Hotspur told the Premier League champions they could sign the player for £125million, reports The Sun.

The 24-year-old has been the subject of intense transfer speculation all summer, with the Welsh winger heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Bale spent the weekend in Spain in the hope of finalising a dream move to the Santiago Bernabeu, but has now been forced to fly back to England as the saga surrounding his future continues.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was angered over the weekend by reports that Real Madrid had erected a stage to unveil the world-record signing, in addition to selling personalised shirts with the player's name on the Spanish club's official website, before a deal had been officially agreed.

Manchester United might look to capitalise on the uncertainty surrounding Bale's La Liga switch, by making a bid to entice him to Old Trafford.

David Moyes refused to confirm the club's intentions to bid for the Tottenham star, but said that the Red Devils are always in the market for world-class talent.

"The owners have given me every opportunity to bring in whoever I want," confirmed the Scot, after last night's 0-0 draw with Chelsea. "So we will continue to try and find those players.

"I said when I got the job that Manchester United will always be interested in the best players and we're always looking to improve the team.

"It's been tough in this window but we're always looking at the best players. I can't say any more."

Tottenham would be reluctant to sell Bale to a rival Premier League club, but could struggle to turn down an offer of £125million if it was forthcoming, a staggering £39million more than Real Madrid were set to pay for his services.
