Tottenham have told Real Madrid that any deal for Gareth Bale will have to involve young Spanish striker Alvaro Morata travelling in the other direction according to The Independent.

Spurs are beginning to come to terms with the possibility that Bale could leave White Hart Lane this summer and are preparing to negotiate with the Spanish giants.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is a notoriously tough negotiator though and will try and squeeze Real Madrid for the best deal possible.

Bale still has three years remaining on his current deal so Levy knows that he currently has the upper hand at the negotiating table.

Levy has now reportedly made it clear to Madrid officials that any deal is contingent on Morata arriving at White Hart Lane.

Madrid are reluctant to part ways with Morata, who is widely tipped to have a bright future in the game.

It is thought that part of the reason Madrid allowed Gonzalo Higuain to leave for Napoli this summer is because it was felt that Morata was ready to make the step up and challenge Karim Benzema for a first team place.

Madrid are hoping to tempt Spurs into accepting an alternative player, with left-back Fabio Coentrao or winger Angel Di Maria expected to be offered instead.
