Well things seem to be going from bad to worse for Tottenham at the moment. After the 5-1 defeat in the FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea it now seems Tottenham could be losing their prize asset Gareth Bale.
Bales agent has stoked transfer rumours of his clients imminent departure from London. Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett was quoted by French media as saying:
“Bale is the type of player PSG need…but he is very happy at Tottenham”.
Although the “he is very happy at Tottenham” quote may have many Spurs fans exhaling a sigh of relief is it inevitable the Welsh winger will leave Spurs?
The Daily Mirror claim Tottenham may be forced to sell some of their stars this summer should they complete a titanic slump and failure to qualify for the Champions League. Bale has been a long-term target for Barcelona – a move I’m sure he’d relish – but they are only willing to pay £30m for the winger, £20m below Spurs asking price.
Should newly-rich PSG stump up £50m then this may be an offer even Daniel Levy would struggle to turn down. This amount of money could see Spurs rebuild their squad and maybe strengthen weaker areas such as their forwards and defence.
Eden Hazard is a target for Spurs so you have to wonder whether they are already lining him up to be Bale’s replacement.
Tottenham fans what do you think, would you rather see Bale stay at the Lane or use his £50m transfer fee to improve the squad?
