Manchester United have made an enquiry about Gareth Bale's availability - and been stunned by Tottenham's asking price. The Daily Express says United have been left stunned by Tottenham's £70million valuation of Bale.

The 23-year-old is perhaps English football's hottest property after some excellent performances for Andre Villas-Boas' Spurs side this season.

Bale has also been linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona.
