White Hart Lane side set for tempting offer from the Bernabeu giants.
Real Madrid are readying a bumper summer bid for man of the moment Gareth Bale. The Daily Star claim that the Spanish giants are willing to offer £30m plus the addition of former Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric in a swap deal that may just tempt the North London side.

Andre Villas-Boas faces something of a struggle to keep hold of in-form 23 year old winger Bale and an offer that would see Croatian Modric return to White Hart Lane could be on that interests the Portuguese boss.
Clearly the Spurs boss wouldn’t want to lose Bale but if the Welsh international were to have his head turned by an offer from the Bernabeu side then this particular combination of cash plus a world-class talent is not to be sneezed at.
Though Modric scored a cracker in Real Madrid’s midweek win over Man United the 27 year old schemer has been little more than a bit part player at the club he joined in the summer, the tricky midfielder facing an uphill struggle to retain a spot in Jose Mourinho’s first team set-up whilst battling the likes of Mesut Ozil, Angel Di Maria and Kaka for attention, and a move back to Tottenham may also be an option he would consider preferable to warming the bench week in, week out.
One potential stumbling block could be the relationship between Modric and chairman Daniel Levy, with the pair falling out over the player’s attempts to leave Tottenham a season earlier than he did. One also wonders how Spurs supporters would treat the pint sized midfielder, should he return.
Bale has been in inspired form this season, scoring 21 goals in all competitions, and any potential move away from Tottenham would be aided should Villas-Boas be unable to guide the club to a Champions League berth.
