In the next step in the recently revived Bale transfer saga, Tottenham need to think of some alternatives should Gareth Bale be sold.
Admittedly, this is unlikely to happen.
If the Modric saga is anything to go by, chairman Daniel Levy will do all in his power to hold on to his star players. No matter, some replacements should be waiting...just in case.
These are some pretty big shoes to fill, should they need filling.
And yes, I realize Danny Rose and Steven Pienaar are waiting for some playing time (when they're not injured). And yes, I understand that this could be the opportunity of a lifetime for Giovani Dos Santos.
I'm not interested in all of this, frankly, because Bale's hypothetical departure would leave a huge hole in the Tottenham attack.
Spurs will need a player that comes close to the level that Bale plays at week in and week out.
