I was saying that when he was not known in European football, just in England, so I know the great player he is.
What young player would say no to Barcelona or Real Madrid? Probably none.
I think for the amount of money involved, it is not easy to buy and we have players for that position.
If we’re talking about Barcelona or Real Madrid, two of the world’s biggest clubs, it’s a bit like Harry Redknapp and the England job, it’s a once in a lifetime thing.
Recently, it was revealed by The Sports Review that Bale insists that he turned down a move to Manchester United to move to Spurs a few years ago, but that loyalty will be tested this summer.
The 22-year-old was also quick to point out that with plenty of time remaining on his contract at Tottenham he is only focused on their chase for next season’s final English Premier League spot in the UEFA Champions League:
He is still young and there is a big space for him to improve so he will be a really top, top, top player. It is a club that buys.
Tottenham’s Welsh sensation, Gareth Bale, has been linked with both Barcelona and Real Madrid in the recent months.
. I have no doubt about that.
If that were to happen, I would obviously have to consider it seriously.
The valuation of the play looks to have Barcelona willing to sell off some of their key youngsters such as Cuenca and Cristian Tello in order to fund a move for the promising attacking leftback and winger, but in all likelihood he will be in a Tottenham kit next fall.
Tottenham is not a good club to sell though.
The moment your mentality changes is when speculation turns into reality and you accept an offer.
When you want to spend big money you do it in areas where you have problems, but I have no doubt he (Bale) is a very good boy.
I have three more years left on my contract and I’m really happy at Tottenham.
We have Cristiano Ronaldo who plays in the same position he plays, and Marcelo at left-back.
Bale himself has also said that a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona would be a dream move in an interview published by Football.co.uk:
However, despite all the rumors of the Welshman moving across the English Channel and heading south to Spain the Daily Mail has reported that Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho may not be as keen on the player as many believe:
Barcelona are reported to have been taken aback by the Lily White’s valuation of their prize left winger, and it now looks as if Real Madrid is emerging as the favorites for his signature, according to Goal.com.
I was one of the first to say he will be an amazing player
