Gareth Bale has been much sought after since his Champions league exploits against Inter Milan a couple of years ago. It seems though that his head has finally been turned. There are plenty of teams interested in the player from Barcelona and Real Madrid to Manchester United & Manchester City.
“If we don’t [qualify for the Champions League], I have to discuss what’s best for myself,” Bale told the BBC, when asked about his future.
He added: “I had a taste last season and thoroughly enjoyed it. Everyone wants to test themselves against the best players in world.
“I am still a Tottenham player and need to keep performing for the team.”
With manager Harry Redknapp maybe taking up the England position, Bale would be willing to move on. Tottenham Hotspurs chairman Daniel Levy is though notorious for driving a hard bargain or not selling players who want to leave at all. If you look at last summer when Modric wanted to leave to go to Chelsea the board did not sanction a move. It will be interesting to see how this scenario unfolds especially if Modric wants to leave again.
