Gareth Bale to stay put at Spurs for now, but away move set for future
Gareth Bale has reiterated his will to move away from England in the future. The young Wales international has once again expressed desire to move to foreign clubs at some stage in his career, however he has no intentions of moving away from Tottenham Hotspur in the next couple of years.
The attacking midfielder’s superb form in the Premier League has turned heads in Europe. Clubs ready to shed millions are ready to break their banks for his services, Real Madrid being at on top of that list.
Gareth Bale’s spectacular form this season led him to the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award and Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year award. The 23-year-old is held in high esteem throughout Europe, such that he is being considered to be from the same breed as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
This is also why top clubs are ready to spend big bucks on the versatile forward. A move has been in the making for Gareth Bale for years. Gareth Bale was on the verge of moving away from Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season if the London outfit hadn’t earned a Champions League berth, but the winger has decided to extend his stay at the club now.
“I have said in the past I would love to experience playing abroad,” Gareth Bale told Sky Sports. “You can never tell what the future holds, but at the moment I am concentrating on what I am doing here.
“It gets asked a lot at the moment, but it is something I am not thinking too much about at the moment. My mind is not wandering anywhere.”
With just one match remaining in the Premier League this season, Tottenham Hotspur are still in the hunt for Champions League action. Tottenham Hotspur are breathing down the necks of fourth placed Arsenal, who are only a point above them.
Gareth Bale admits Tottenham Hotspur must provide him with Champions League action if they want him to remain at the club in the future.
“We have a job to do,” Gareth Bale said. “We set a goal at the start of the season and we want to achieve it. Winning is a massive thing and playing against the best teams is what a footballer wants to do. Champions League is a massive thing. We have been there before, playing against the best teams in the biggest stadiums, testing ourselves.”
Gareth Bale has proven himself to be one of the most threatening forces in the Premier League, yet the youngster admits he has a lot of areas to improve in and his “right foot” is one of them.
“I need to work a lot on my right foot,” Gareth Bale added. “Sometimes I get a bit of confidence with it. But it can be a bit all over the place. I will look to strengthen it over the summer and work on it in pre-season.”
