The Daily Mail have us all sat up taking notice here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they think that Gareth Bale is set for a dramatic decision.
It was only yesterday that the forward was being linked with a move to the Spanish Capital and Marca – the national paper – even noted that Bale had agreed personal terms and a six year deal worth £80 million with Florentino Perez. Now however a move to link up with Carlo Ancelotti does not seem on the cards, as Bale has spoken out about his love for Spurs and also his desire to stay at the club and help them fight for a Champions League spot next season.
He noted that ‘ We all believe we can get into the Champions League otherwise there’s not point being here.
‘It’s just a matter of going out there and proving everyone we can.’
When asked about Andre Villas Boas and Spurs’ chances of the title, Bale further added that ‘We did a couple of seasons ago so there’s no reason why not.
We’ve definitely got a good enough team to challenge. It just depends on how consistent we can be.
‘We’re all looking forward to the season, hopefully we can improve on last season – I’m sure with a few more additions to the squad we’ll be a lot better.’
