So Arsenal have done it again. For the sixteenth time now in a row they will be playing in the Champion’s League, marking a high point in Wenger’s career. But the team to lose out this season is Spurs yet again. Their bad luck continues as they try in vain to qualify for the Premier European League. But this season losing out the fourth spot may be a bit sourer as it may have deeper implications. Their star player Gareth Bale may just decide to leave, following his side’ inability to qualify for the Champions league. Real Madrid are already making enquiries about him and may lure him to Spain with a big money move while Manchester United may also move in for the player. We note three reasons as to why may Bale decide to leave Spurs and head to Madrid, even if Spurs break the bank and try to keep him.
There are reports suggesting that Bale has accepted a new £130,000-a-week Tottenham contract according to the Independent. However as of now there is no confirmation from both the parties and even if Bale accepts a contract, it could only increase his market value and we have the whole summer infront of us and anything could happen.
P.S: Tottenham fans reading this post, I have got nothing against you. It is just what I feel and your are welcome to have your say at the bottom of the article.
It is dream of any footballer to play in the Champions League and this may be one of the most vital reason why he would be even consider the offers. At the age of 23 Bale may feel that it is the right time in his career to make a big move and make a mark in European competition. The Champions League football may be one of the reason, but it is very promising one and let’s face it, how long will he single handedly carry Spurs season after season just to finish behind Arsenal.
Di Maria’s form
Angel Di Maria has been going through a poor run of form for a long time now and Mourinho has often hinted that the Argentine has not done enough to satisfy his boss. Although Mourinho will not be there at the Bernabeu next season, Real may consider selling Di Maria and that may open up Bale’s opportunity to feature in the first team. Unlike many players who get wasted in Real for lack of opportunity, Bale might not have to struggle hard and break into the first team easily. If Madrid do end up selling the winger, their first target will undoubtedly be Bale and if the Galacticos come calling with a £70 million offer, expect Daniel Levy to let go their priced asset.
The dream of playing in Real
Playing alongside Ronaldo is in itself a dream and the combination of the Welsh man and the Portuguese sensation on either wings would take Madrid to a whole new level, a lethal combination which every Real Madrid fan would fantasies about. In real he would get the opportunity to feature with some of the biggest names in world football, a factor motivating enough for Bale considering a switch. Thieu combination could be a notch better than the Ribery/Robben partnership at Bayern Munich.
