Wales star Bale has been linked with a world record £105m move to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
"One of the senior players said that he was surprised that Perez was willing to pay so much for one player and another asked, 'What about us?'" The Mirror quotes a source in Spain as saying.
"A third player was adamant that Bale was not needed, and that the squad Carlo Ancelotti already has is strong enough without him."
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is believed to be in negotiations with Real about Bale's world record switch.
