“If you said to any young player that you could play for Barcelona or Real would they turn it down? Probably not. If a bid was accepted you would obviously have to seriously consider it.”
Every player has his price and this time, Gareth Bale has found it. After years of constant speculation, the Tottenham Hotspur winger finally looks to be on his way out. Since raising his profile in the Champions League games against Inter Milan in 2010, many high-profile clubs are in the hunt for the Welshman.
And it looks as if Real Madrid are right on top of the list.
Jose Mourinho has always claimed to be one of Bale’s biggest fans after labelling him ‘amazing’ in 2011 after Tottenham’s surprising debut in European’s greatest competition. The admiration for the winger’s speed and penetration in and around the opposite box has seen Mourinho target Bale ever since that year but now it seems extremely likely Spurs could lose yet another big name.
