Man United set to battle Tottenham for 23-year-old Spanish defender

According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have so far been reluctant to accept Real Madrid's buy-back clause demands for Sergio Reguilon.

Bale has been frozen out by Real manager Zinedine Zidane and the Wales star said earlier this month that he was open to joining a Premier League side.

Manchester United have also always been linked with Bale, who is still viewed in Old Trafford as a potential transfer target should they fail to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

And the Telegraph are reporting that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is ready to offer Real a swap deal with Dele Alli.

Bale has divided opinion among the Real Madrid's fanbase, with some supporters frustrated by a perceived lack of commitment from the Welshman, and he did not feature in their final seven league matches as they pipped Barcelona to the Liga title while he watched on from the bench.

Manchester United have also been linked with the player in recent days, so it does look like Bale's days at Real Madrid are numbered and that he'll soon be back in the Premier League.

Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett has previously dismissed talk the forward could leave on loan.

Any transfer move concerning Bale would also depend on the outcome of United's pursuit of Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

Jose Mourinho has Ryan Sessegnon and Ben Davies as his options at left-back but it seems he's not pleased.

Bale is firmly out of Real Madrid's plans and came close to moving to China a year ago.

Perisic joined Inter in 2015 and still has just under two years left to run on his contract with Inter.

The report goes on to reveal that neither Manchester United nor Spurs would have a problem meeting Real Madrid's asking price for Reguilon.
