Agent for Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale says Barcelona have not bid for the Welsh star

Barcelona have not made a bid for Gareth Bale, according to the player’s agent.
The Spurs star has been linked with the La Liga giants but his representative, Jonathan Barnett, has played down the speculation, indicating that no bid has been made.
“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.”
He did add however, that the lack of Champions League football at White Hart Lane is a problem.
“Yes, it is clear that this is a problem. 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 put on the table.”
