We want Bale at Barca! Spurs star tops Guardiola”s summer wishlist
Tottenham superstar Gareth Bale has emerged as Barcelona”s No 1 transfer target for the summer.
The Catalan club have failed to hit the dizzy heights of last season and they have set Bale in their sights to ensure they don”t fall behind rivals Real Madrid.
No 1 target: Bale is top of Barcelona”s wishlist
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp this week said that only Manchester City could afford to sign the Welsh winger but, according to the Daily Mirror, that has not put Barca off.
Manager Pep Guardiola has reportedly drawn up a three-man shortlist for the summer, and Bale tops the bill.
Barca are known for driving a hard bargain, as they did when coveting former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas last summer, and it is reported they are not willing to pay more than 25million for Bale.
Star man: Spurs are likely to demand much more than the 25m Barcelona are hoping to pay
Spurs will no doubt demand a much higher figure than that for their star man.
Also on Barcelona”s shortlist are AC Milan defender Thiago Silva and Valencia”s Spain international left back Jordi Alba.
