Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to sell star man Gareth Bale to Real Madrid this summer, but only if the Spanish giants include promising young front man Alvaro Morata as part of any deal for the playmaker, according to reports in the Guardian.

Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti revealed on Wednesday that the two clubs were now finally in talks about a word-record transfer for the coveted Wales international, with los Blancos having reportedly offered a whopping 100 million euros (£86m) in straight cash for the 24-year-old.

However, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is determined that the north London club also acquire a player of their own choosing from the Santiago Bernabeu, and despite the Liga outfit offering either Portugal left-back Fabio Coentrao or Argentina wide man Angel di Maraa in part exchange for Bale, Spurs are believed to only be interested in Morata.

The 20-year-old, who has a contract in the Spanish capital that runs until the summer of 2015, is highly regarded by the new Madrid manager, having shone for his country at the recent European Under-21 Championship in Israel, where his goals helped Spain retain their title.

And despite having only scored two goals in his 18 appearances for Madrid since making his debut for the club in the 2010-11 season, the Italian was planning on using the striker in his first-team plans in the upcoming campaign now that Gonzalo Higuain has left to join Napoli.
