Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Gareth Bale has come on leaps and bounds since he first joined the club and converted from a left back to a left sided midfielder. His biggest asset is his lightning quick speed, closely followed by his devastating goalscoring ability. Real Madrid have been rumoured to be interested in making Bale their biggest signing in the transfer window, and what a signing he could be.
But Bale signed a contract extension at White Hart Lane that made him one of the best paid players at Spurs recently, earning £5 million a year and being cementing him contractually to being on their books until 2016.
The price that Daniel Levy, known as the tough negotiator in Madrid over the sale of Luca Modric, will be willing to let Bale go for, though, is going to be right up there with the most expensive players in the world. The Welshman’s last interview in which he did not close any doors and in which he stated that his goal is at some point in his career playing to play overseas, the winger said: “I have no fear of leaving the country, if there’s a great opportunity to consider it seriously. I left home at age 15. If I leave the Premier, learn another language, I will know other people, another country, I will grow as a person.”
Also, he did not hesitate to praise Real Madrid: “I grew up watching and admiring Zidane, Figo, Ronaldo … And yes, it has an incredible aura you are talking about the best club in the world. Madrid has history, personality, glamour. ”
We can only wait and see where Gareth Bale will be playing after the January transfer window, but don’t rule out seeing this amazing player in La Liga some time in the future.
