Gareth Bale’s Future at Tottenham Uncertain
Gareth Bale was already expected to be in thicket of ‘transfer talks’ as soon as the summer transfer window opened. However, after grabbing the PFA Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards, the Welsh attacking midfielder has quickened the process.
Some of the biggest clubs are now chasing after the 23-year-old Wales international. In recent months, Gareth Bale has been linked with Real Madrid and Bayern Munchen. Other clubs such as Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have also sought after the possibility of acquiring his signature.
Previously, Gareth Bale admitted he would welcome a move abroad at some point. However, the Welshman set no date on his exit from the Premier League, which means Gareth Bale's Tottenham Hotspur future is up in the air.
Upon being questioned on how he was taking all the transfer rumors surrounding him, Gareth Bale insisted he wasn’t disturbed or distracted. Bale told reporters that he was not paying attention to speculation.
“I just take no notice. It's all speculation. I can't do anything about it. I just concentrate on my football and play as well as I can and do my best for the team,” Gareth said.
Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has already declared he expects Gareth Bale to extend his stay at White Hart Lane, but deep down the Portuguese boss knows that acquiring a Champions League berth is essential to ensure his prodigy stay at home.
Meanwhile, Gareth Bale claims he would be willing to swap his double PFA honors for Champions League action next season. Well, this comes as no news since Bale has always said that he would like to play for a team that offers regular Champions League football.
Tottenham are fifth on the Premier League table. The London outfit is only two points away from fourth-placed Arsenal and has a game in hand, which means Tottenham are still in strong contention for a Champions League spot. Only time will tell us where Gareth ends up.
