Manchester United and Real Madrid could be set to do battle over £85m-rated Gareth Bale with Tottenham concerned the winger has become unsettled amid all the talk of a big-money move this summer, according to the Mirror.

The 2012/13 PFA Player of the Year has been strongly linked with a move away from White Hart Lane again this summer with both Manchester United and Real Madrid credited with an interest.

Reports in Spain on Tuesday claimed Bale had already agreed terms over a six-year contract with Madrid and the La Liga giants were believed to have tested Tottenham’s resovle by tabling a mammoth £85m offer.  The north Londoners refused to comment on the speculation last night but have insisted throughout the summer that their prized asset is not for sale.

However, the Mirror suggest that Daniel Levy feels the 24-year-old has become unsettled at all the reports linking him with a move this summer, with Madrid’s public pursuit believed to be a huge contributing factor.

Marca were at it once again yesterday when they printed a front-page spread suggesting Bale missed Tottenham’s 3-1 defeat to Sunderland because he was gearing up for a switch to the Bernabue after apparently handing in a transfer request. These claims have been rubbished with Spurs declaring the winger missed the game due to a buttock injury, but rumours of a move refuse to go away.

There was talk of Bale signing a new deal at the start of the summer but as yet, no new contract has been signed which is only leading to more speculation over his future. The Mirror claim that Manchester United and Real Madrid are ready to spark a bidding war over his signature if they’re given any indication he’s unsettled and wants a move, and the players silence on the matter is only adding to the unease in north London.

Personally, I feel Bale will give Tottenham one more season but with over five weeks left until the transfer window closes, anything can still happen.

        Correcting someone on their spelling when it’s obviously their second language? You’re low.

        Well when you say all Utd fans are outside Manchester you would be wrong.If you said most of Utd fans are not from Manchester then you would be correct.The city would be very crowded with all 659mill fans living there.

    Who’s unsettled? There’s no-one in our camp who’s unsettled. So, that’s just a complete lie. Liars aren’t worth a piece of sh*t!
