Real Madrid's pursuit of Gareth Bale continues to twist and turn. After weeks of courting the Welsh star, it seems the La Liga side will now face a bidding war to land his signature.
As reported by Dan Roan of BBC Sport, Los Blancos could battle it out with an unnamed Premier League club:
Tottenham have received a separate offer in addition to Real Madrid's world record £86m bid for Gareth Bale say sources at the north London club.
The Spanish giants remain in pole position to sign the 24-year-old Welshman, but Spurs say no agreement has been reached with Real.
The second bidder's identity is not known but Manchester United have been linked with the forward this summer.
Spurs have approached Chelsea about buying a player to replace Bale.
While it seems Bale is leaving no matter what happens, the importance of Ronaldo is galvanised with such a development.
The two players thrive in similar positions and have the potential to form one of football's greatest ever attacking relationships, but the Portuguese star is unlikely to accept anything aside from a starring role at the Bernabeu.
Whether Bale arrives in Madrid or not, Ronaldo's career will be impacted. Keep an eye on this one for further developments.
