Bavarians want Welsh winger at the Allianz Arena next season.
Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are lining up a big-money end-of-season swoop for Tottenham Hotspur’s in-form midfield player Gareth Bale, reports the Daily Mail.
The Wales international is enjoying another eye-catching campaign for the North London club, scoring two more sensational free kicks in Tottenham’s Europa League round-of-32 tie with Lyon on Thursday night.
However, the Bavarians know that they will face stiff competition for the 23-year-old’s signature from a whole host of other top European clubs, with Liga outfit Real Madrid believed to be the favourites to sign the winger when he eventually decides to leave White Hart Lane.
Pep Guardiola, who will take over as the new Bayern coach for next season, is understood to have told his new employers to splash out £50 million on Bale though, a move that is sure to test Sours’ resolve to keep hold of the player.
“This is probably the best I’ve been playing so far in my career,” Bale said after the Lyon match. “I’m enjoying my football and the team’s playing well, which obviously makes it easier for me.
“I’ve just got to keep my head down, keep working hard. I’ve still got a lot of room for improvement.”
