There is a rather sensational claim from the London Evening Standard for us to mull over here in the Football Transfer Tavern today involving Tottenham’s Gareth Bale and our punters are loving it.
The publication claim that despite constant speculation over his future, Gareth Bale will not be going anywhere this summer and in fact the player is more than happy at White Hart Lane, relishing life under current manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Not only have Spurs placed a rather hefty price tag on the Welsh international’s head but Real Madrid are thought to be prepared to pay it.
Whilst the links are of course flattering to the former Southampton man, he has claimed when talking to Spurs TV that: “The manager has helped me in all aspects of my game.
“In training we have been working on things that I can do in games and in games he has given me the confidence to do what I want and do what I do best, which is a massive thing for a player.
“Everyone was excited about him coming in. He is a young manager and he has got a great past at Porto. Maybe not so much at Chelsea but given time, like he has been this season, he has shown what a good manager he is. It has been a very exciting time for the club.”
Is you gut feeling that Bale will stay this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
