Tottenham are prepared to sell prize asset Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in the summer for £55m, according to reports.

The Welsh winger has been in scintillating form this campaign scoring 14 goals in 29 appearances and has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane at the end of the season.

If Spurs were to accept such a bid, Andre Villas-Boas would be able to invest heavily in his squad but could he find a replacement of Bale's quality?
