Barcelona's spending power for Tottenham star Gareth Bale will fall hopelessly short. The Daily Mail says Bale looks unlikely to move to Barcelona this summer, with the European champions unwilling to pay more than €20m (£16.5m) for the Tottenham winger.

Pep Guardiola has long admired the Wales star and is keen to bring him to the Nou Camp. But the Catalan club are refusing to break the bank and won't offer anywhere near the £40m Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy would want for the 22-year-old.
