A report claims that Real Madrid will offer Gareth Bale to Tottenham Hotspur as compensation for manager Mauricio Pochettino, who remains their top target.

Real Madrid will reportedly give Tottenham Hotspur the chance to re-sign Gareth Bale next summer in exchange for in-demand manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The 46-year-old is thought to be high on the list of targets for both Madrid and Manchester United thanks to his impressive work in North London.

United are on the lookout for a new boss to succeed caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the end of the season, while Madrid may part company with Santiago Solari in six months' time, despite the former midfielder only being placed in charge last month.

According to the Daily Star, Los Blancos plan to match whatever Man United offer Tottenham for Pochettino, on top of giving the Lilywhites the opportunity to bring Bale back to the Premier League.

The report indicates that Spurs are after £45m in compensation for Pochettino, but re-signing Bale at a reduced price could help broker a deal.
