Manchester City are preparing a sensational £45 million January swoop for Tottenham midfielder Gareth Bale, UK can reveal.

City have started putting together a player-exchange package for the converted midfielder, who has become one of the most sought-after talents in Europe following his magnificent form in 2010.

City are desperate to rid their wage bill of high-earning fringe players such as Emmanuel Adebayor and Joleon Lescott, who are likely to be offered to Spurs plus cash in return for Bale.

But White Hart Lane sources insist the Londoners will batten down the hatches and are confident they can fight off any interest in their prize asset from the club funded by Abu Dhabi’s billions.

“There is more chance of us getting relegated this season than selling Gareth Bale,” said one Spurs insider. “Don’t worry, he is going nowhere.” (

So there you have it. Man City will apparently bid for the Tottenham starlet and Harry Redknapp will laugh in their face, that appears to be the general gist of this report. Clearly there is a growing interest in the Welsh international, which is to be expected given the performances he is consistently putting in, but is there a chance that the north London club could lose Bale if they fail to secure another top four finish?

The fact that the 21 year old has been even more impressive on Champions League duty than in domestic football makes him an even more attractive prospect, hence the reported interest from the likes of Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

I think that Redknapp can rest assured though that the former Southampton man will stick with the club who showed him faith during his not so spectacular start to this Tottenham career but perhaps a year from now things could be different dependent on just how far Harry can take the club.
