Tottenham star Gareth Bale in the mix for a £50m move to Real Madrid
After scoring a stunning hat-trick against Aston Villa on Wednesday the Tottenham Hotspur forward Gareth Bale is found to be in the mix of a move to Real Madrid once again. A number of other suitors have come forth with interest in Gareth Bale as well, but Tottenham Hotspur have refused to negotiate with clubs without a treasure chest of money.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas claims Gareth Bale is priceless asset for the club after his side thrashed Aston Villa to obtain a 4-0 victory. Gareth Bale inspired Spurs to a stunning victory against a side that has now conceded 12 goals in their last two Premier League games.
Gareth Bale has been linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid since last year. In recent months reports about Gareth Bale’s inevitable move to Real Madrid have intensified, although Tottenham Hotspur have time and again announced that they are not interested in selling their prized asset.
A £50 million transfer deal was proposed by Tottenham Hotspur a year ago. Since then little progress has been made until now. Insiders at both clubs suggest talks for a transfer move have begun once again.
“We recognize he is one of our major assets for sure, but in England there are no release clauses and a player of this dimension has a market value that is not attainable for most other clubs,” Andre Villas-Boas stated after victory over Aston Villa.
“His skills and talents put Gareth up there with the best and he is improving every day. Also, he is such a young player and has a wonderful personality. As he learns to feel even better in this team then probably his performances will improve.
“His finishing is very accurate and he has been prolific in front of goal. He is enjoying getting into those positions and his left foot is wonderful. He is doing great things.”
Gareth Bale is interested in moving to Real Madrid in the near future, but if Tottenham Hotspur secures a spot in the Champions League the 23-year-old Welshman will extend his stay in England.
Tottenham Hotspur’s victory over Aston Villa took them to the fourth spot in the Premier League. Andre Villas-Boas refused to get carried away by his side’s rejuvenated form. The former Chelsea manager told reporters that he was and his team were focusing on one game at a time and now their next target was Sunderland.
“Everyone is so tight at the top of the table and our target has to be to open a gap ahead of the rest of the teams sitting near the top,” Andre Villas-Boas said.
“Our aim is to take this form to Sunderland, where the Premier League champions just lost. It will be a tough game.”
