The source said one possibility is a part-exchange deal, although the Spurs chairman values Eriksen, 27, at more than three times higher than Bale, who turns 30 in July.
The cons of this transfer doesn't end here; the Welshman is inordinately injury-prone and to play in England which has the busiest of schedules in all of Europe, it will be more of a challenge for the ageing Bale to stay fit rather than perform on the pitch.
But Pogba has been, arguably, Manchester United's best player this season and it was originally thought the club would be opposed to letting him leave.
According to AS, when asked about whether Gareth Bale would feature against Real Betis, Zidane said, "I'm not sure". "He has got a contract, he will quite happily see it out until 2022". In both his stints as Real Madrid manager, he's usually been calm and collected to the point of being boring.
Real Madrid are gearing up for a squad overhaul in the summer with several first-team members reportedly on their way out.
While Zidane has offered support to the likes of Karim Benzema, Marcelo and Raphael Varane, he has refused to offer assurances over Bale.
Daily Mail claims Zidane has informed Bale that he is not in his plans for next season, while Kroos has struggled for form and Isco has been out of favour.
Paul Pogba has been linked with a move to Real for most of the season and it's said that the France worldwide is keen on going.
