Tottenham star Gareth Bale is eyeing a move to Real Madrid. The People says while Barcelona have been talked up, Bale would prefer to join his pal Cristiano Ronaldo at their La Liga rivals.

He does not believe his game is suited to that of Barca - so it is set to come down to a battle between Madrid and Manchester City. Roberto Mancini's side are willing to pay Bale more than £200,000-a-week to make the switch north, but people close to the player are urging him to move abroad rather than cave in to the advances of City's money men.
