Could Gareth Bale still be unhappy at Real Madrid and will Jan Vertonghen leave north London for Serie A?

What the papers say

The Daily Mail reports that Gareth Bale flew to London on Monday to meet his agent amid reports the Welsh international is looking to leave Real Madrid. The paper says the meeting was routine but that will do little quell the ongoing speculation that the forward wants to leave the Spanish giants. The 30-year-old had been linked with a move to China during the summer, and his appearance in the British capital comes less than 48 hours before Madrid face Leganes in LaLiga.

Inter Milan are still gunning for Jan Vertonghen despite Tottenham saying they are not interested in selling the Belgium international, according to The Guardian. The centre-back has been with Spurs since 2012 and is out of contract at the end of the season. Inter could not afford him over the summer but are now looking to offer the 32-year-old a three-year contract on a free at the end of the campaign.

Spurs are set to rely on young talent to 'revitalise their season', according to the Daily Star. The paper cites The Athletic and says manager Mauricio Pochettino will forgo a recruitment rush in January and instead look to youth players Troy Parrott, Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga.
