PLAYERS: Gareth Bale
Tottenham star Gareth Bale has told Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy that he only wants to play for Real Madrid, and that Levy has broken his promise to let Bale join the Spanish club, according to a new reports in Spain. Here’s what Bale allegedly told Levy, according to Marca: “You made me a promise. You promised me if we didn’t qualify for the Champions League and a good offer turned up you’d listen to it. “Well that offer has arrived and I want to play for Real Madrid. So keep your word and negotiate. “I’m not interested in Manchester United or any other club. I only want to play for Real Madrid.” Bale supposedly told those words to Levy last week in London before the player headed out to Asia for the Barclays Asia Trophy. Spanish newspaper AS reports that Levy is only willing to let Bale go for offers of more than £100million. At the same time, Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas says that contract talks are undergoing between Bale’s agent and the London club regarding a new contract to fend off interest from Real Madrid. Villas-Boas said: “There was contact between the club and his agent last year and there is ongoing contact between the club and his agent. “We renewed his contract at the beginning of last season, if you remember, and it’s something that is being dealt with by the chairman and the agent. “Talks are ongoing but that doesn’t mean there is an agreement. At the moment we’re confident that the player is under contract at Tottenham, as was done last year. It’s something that we’re speaking about, but there aren’t any developments.” The longer that Bale and Tottenham stall on agreeing a new contract, the more tense the situation becomes regarding whether Bale will stay in England or not. What do you make of the developing story? Are Real Madrid trying to unsettle Bale by feeding lies to Madrid newspaper Marca? Or is everything rosy between Bale and Tottenham as Villas-Boas infers? Or is the truth somewhere in between? Let us know what you think in the comments section below. Gareth Bale Tells Tottenham, “I Only Want to Play For Real Madrid” is a post from World Soccer Talk.
