Nou Camp side keen on White Hart Lane winger.
Barcelona are exploring ways of funding a £50 million bid for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.
The Daily Express says Barca are looking at ways of raising cash to fund a massive summer bid for Tottenham’s £50million-rated star Bale.
Barcelona will consider selling exciting youngsters Cristian Tello, Isaac Cuenca and Jonathan Dos Santos on buy-back deals after putting Bale at the top of their wishlist.
Barcelona have had Bale watched on several occasions this season. They have also made discreet enquiries about how much it might cost to buy him.
Given that Tottenham fought off Chelsea interest in Luka Modric last summer it may well be tough for Daniel Levy to consider offers for Gareth Bale, however hefty they are. Barcelona have reportedly sent scouts to monitor the Welsh winger on a number of occasions this season and the former Southampton man has not disappointed.
Thus far this term the 22 year old has notched up nine goals and eight assists in Premier League action and last term Bale showed what he could achieve on the Champions League stage so there will be no shortage of prospective suitors keen on landing the Tottenham youngster.
Guardiola may feel that the left side of his attack is a ‘weak’ area with new signing Alexis not being a huge success thus far. The Nou Camp boss may feel he needs to improve his Barcelona side after seeing them fall some seven points off leaders Real Madrid.
