Gareth Bale's Spurs future in doubt as agent admits 'problem' over Euro loss
Looking elsewhere? ... Gareth Bale

Spurs unluckily missed on Champions League football, despite finishing fourth in the Premier League, due to Chelsea’s final triumph over Bayern Munich.

Now Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, has urged interested parties to step up if they are serious about taking his client to new heights.

‘Yes, it is clear that this [no Champions League football] is a problem,’ said Barnett.

‘The big European clubs already know how much it would take to do a deal and therefore if you are interested you know what kind of offer has to be put on the table.’

Barnett, did though, admit there was currently no bid on the table from La Liga giants Barcelona.

‘I think it’s too expensive for Barca,’ he told Catalan-based newspaper Sport.

‘To my knowledge, Barca have not made any offer for him.

‘If interested, they would have to put money on the table and then start talking. But it seems that Barca are working on the signing of Jordi Alba, a cheaper option.’

Bale is also thought to be unhappy with the sacking of manager Harry Redknapp, who left Spurs in the early hours of this morning.
