Man United have made their interest in Tottenham winger Gareth Bale known but have been told that they will have to fork out £70m if they want to sign the 23 year old according to the Daily Express.

This source reports that David Gill discussed the possibility of a Man United move for the Welsh international but was told by White Hart Lane chairman Daniel Levy that it would cost the Old Trafford side £70m to buy the in-form wide-man, a fee that is the Premier League table toppers are said to have been taken aback by.

Tottenham will look to double Gareth Bale’s current £75k a week deal and offer a fresh new £150k a week five year deal, this despite the fact that the former Southampton man still has three and a half years to run on his current contract.

The North London club are clearly keen to avoid Bale being lured away and will hope that the securing of a Champions League berth will help to convince the Tottenham man to stay and Andre Villas-Boas’s side look a decent bet to clinch such a spot, sitting as they do in third place, some four points clear of fifth place Arsenal and with a game in hand to boot.

Sir Alex Ferguson is said to be keen on Gareth Bale but may not be willing to meet such a valuation.

Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid are also said to be keen on Bale, who has netted 16 Premier League goals this season.
