Incoming Bayern Munich boss, Pep Guardiola will further add to the certainty that Gareth Bale will not be playing at Tottenham Hotspurs next season, as he is now ready to make a move for the Welshman.
The former Barcelona manager is ready to go head-to-head against his old rivals Real Madrid in a battle to capture the £30million-rated Spurs winger.
Guardiola, will take over at Allianz Arena in the summer, and Pep, who has confessed that he is a huge fan of the Welsh wizard, has indicated he will want Bale on board.
Pep was already tracking the Spurs winger more than a year ago before he took 12 months out of the game after stepping down at Barcelona, reports futaa.com.
Since then Bale, 23, has taken his game to even higher levels. His displays have established him as one of the hottest properties in European football.
Meanwhile, Tottenham keep insisting that their star asset is not for sale, but with all the speculations and big money flying around, it is certain their resolve will be tested.
