Chelsea are poised to make a £40million bid for Gareth Bale in the summer.

And the Stamford Bridge club believe their hopes of enticing the Welsh wonder away from White Hart Lane can be boosted by beating his current club on Saturday.

A defeat for Tottenham would be a devastating blow to their flickering chances of Champions League football next season.

Bale signed a four-year deal with Spurs last month worth £60,000 per week, and his family are understood to feel his development would be better served by extending his stay in N17.

But the 21-year-old, voted the PFA Player of the Year, has not hidden his desire to play in Europe’s elite competition next season after lighting up the Champions League this season.

Chelsea have three main target areas for the summer, with Ajax right-back Gregory van der Wiel the prime target for that berth and a big-name central midfielder also on the agenda.

The third is a flying winger who can replicate the attacking threat of Jose Mourinho’s title-winning side, who had Arjen Robben, Damien Duff and Joe Cole at their disposal. Bale is seen as the ideal answer.

Tottenham will be reluctant to sell at any price, but persuading Bale – and Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart – to stay will be much harder if they cannot offer Champions League football.
