The Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has said that he will certainly consider the possibility of moving to and overseas club in the future, thus opening the door to a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona. The Welshman has been rated as one of the best players in the world with a number of high-profile clubs like Barcelona Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Manchester City showing interest in the player. However, it is thought that he would be extremely interested in moving to a foreign country to experience new cultures. Spanish clubs are the only favourites for this deal due to the transfer fees that he would command.
After a number of rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, he finally signed a new four-year contract with the club that will run until 2016. He is now the highest-paid player at the club, but even that falls way below the standards set by the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona. Gareth Bale is thought to be on a contract worth around only £ 75,000 per week, which is pale in comparison with the £ 200,000 per week enjoyed by some of the Real Madrid players. The Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas, though, has categorically stated that the club will not sell the player.
“It would be nice to experience other leagues and other cultures. I’m not afraid to go abroad. If the time comes and a team that’s right comes in for me, then I’ll look at it seriously. I’ll see what happens,” said Gareth Bale in a recent interview. Due to the recent negotiations between Tottenham and Real Madrid over the sale of Luka Modric, it is thought to be the Madrid club who were in pole position to sign the player in the coming seasons.
