Real Madrid have made a world record bid of over £85m to Tottenham for Gareth Bale Sky Sports understands.

Real's offer has been on the table for over a week and Bale is becoming more and more frustrated with the situation.

The bid does not include any Real Madrid players moving to Spurs as part of a package.

Sky Sports understands Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is currently in Miami and that the club's stance - that the Wales international is not for sale - has not changed.

Bale has so far kept his feelings to himself making no public declaration about what he wants to happen next.

Tottenham and Bale are back from the Asia Trophy and will resume training on Wednesday.

But speaking on the Sky Sports Football Season Preview show former Spurs player and Sky pundit Jamie Redknapp said he thinks it is inevitable Bale will now move.

"How can he turn it down?" Redknapp said. "I also believe Spurs are a selling club - go back to Michael Carrick Luka Modric Dimitar Berbatov - okay they also sell at the right price.

"I think there'll be a conversation between Daniel Levy and (owner) Joe Louis and I can only see one outcome that he'll be a Real Madrid player."

Earlier on Tuesday Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas backed his club's chase for Bale.

"We are talking about one of the top three or four best players in Europe" said Casillas "and it's normal that his name is being discussed because he has all the qualities a footballer needs."

Madrid-based newspaper Marca which is effectively a mouthpiece for Real claimed on its front page on Tuesday that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is demanding a fee of £126m which would shatter the world-record fee for a footballer - the £80m Real spent on Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009.

Spain-based journalist Graham Hunter says the La Liga side are prepared to offer a huge sum to tempt the forward to Madrid.

"The briefing between Real and the Madrid media is that verbally - and I don't think there's a written offer - Spurs are aware that Real are willing to go to 93m euros for Gareth Bale" said Hunter.

Online bookmaker Sky Bet have now gone odds-on that Bale leaves Tottenham in the current transfer window for the first time this summer with Madrid the clear favourites at 4/7 to land his signature.
