Bale asking price could scupper move

Reports claim Real Madrid have slapped a £200m price tag on Gareth Bale following his exploits in the Champions League final.

The former Tottenham man again showed his class with two goals, one a stunning overhead kick, as Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 in the Champions League final on Saturday night.

However, speaking afterwards, Bale hinted he may not be with the European champions for much longer after a season where he struggled for starts on a regular basis and will consider his future over the next few weeks.

Manchester United are known admirers and are said to be at the front of the queue, but Bale's performance at the weekend appears to be a costly one for the Red Devils, who will have to smash their transfer record to land him.

There is also the fact he has four years left on a lucrative five-year deal with Los Blancos so any would-be suitor would have to at least match that package meaning he is likely to still be with Zinedine Zidane's men next season.
