Gareth Bale is reportedly furious after Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy rejected a world record bid of £82million from Real Madrid for the Welsh winger.
Levy is insisting that Bale will stay at Tottenham for the remainder of his three-year contract and that no bid will be excepted from anybody, no matter how high the price may be.
This news has left Bale in turmoil as he is now starting to realise that this is the correct time for him to move. He is angry that he is being denied the chance to play for one the biggest clubs in the world, alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Ozil. The Welshman also dreams of playing in the Champions League, something that Spurs have only managed to do once during his career.
I can 100% agree with how Bale feels on the situation. With the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea seemingly getting stronger year by year and Arsenals promise of spending big in the transfer market, it will be even harder for Spurs to get in the top four this season. Now at the age of 24, a player of Bale’s ability needs to be playing at the top level in my opinion. He deserves to be in a title winning team, whether that be in England or Spain, and also showing the world what he can do in the Champions League.
The week ahead could be a very interesting one for the on-going Gareth Bale saga.
What do you think? Should Daniel Levy let Bale have his wish and let him leave White Hart Lane?
