The Tottenham player has stated quite clearly that he wishes to remain at Tottenham for the forseeable future, and has recently signed a new agreement that shall keep him at White Hart Lane for a good five years at the very least.
Unfortunately interest in a player does not cost anything. Teams, especially those from abroad, whether through an agent or not, will always open their mouths regardless of what type of dung emerges from the pharynx.
Fortunately for Tottenham Hotspur fans, players are well advised at reading anything “the press” may release, good or bad. News of interest in Gareth Bale is not new, his hat trick against Inter Milan in the Champions League at the San Siro stadium went round the world in minutes but Bale seems intelligent enough to be able to brush any rumours off, without it affecting his game play.
That is the biggest negative that agents and “interested clubs” bring with them these days. For those players that do read the papers on a daily basis, the biggest factor is money. Should a story reveal itself that one of the Spanish or Italian giants are prepared to bump their pay to extravagant heights, then all of a sudden, that player becomes interested in a move away.
Thankfully there has not been any talk from Bale about it. He has signed a nice new deal, is doing well for club and country, and looks to be an extraordinary talent both presently and in the future.
Five years down the line may see Bale wanting to join another club, the quest for trophies is just as important for players than it is for fans, however, should Tottenham bring some silverware to North London in the next two or three years, then it will be others looking to join Tottenham, and not vice versa.
The Tottenham boss, Harry Redknapp has invested well, and he has a few world class players at his disposal. the back from Daniel Levy is dynamite, without it, things may be heading in a different direction, but now he has tasted some of Europe’s finest football, the whole club want more and they will need to back their manager 100% to make it a continued success.
Gareth Bale is still a young lad, still learning, yet capable of upsetting may of the worlds best defenders, but for his sake and for the sake of football, rumours and interests should be left well alone.
