THE Daily Bale: Anorak’s look at the Tottenham Hotspur star in the news. Today’s Transfer Balls:

July 2:

Belfast Telegraph : “Manchester United manager David Moyes told: Go and buy Gareth Bale”

Manchester United told David Moyes yesterday that he can break the British transfer record this summer if he so desires.

The club’s American owners are happy to show they mean business by backing the new manager with a ‘marquee signing’ before the transfer window closes.

And for Moyes, that means carte blanche to land Welsh wing wizard Gareth Bale, even if it means having to spend an eye-watering £60m on the Spurs player.

July 1 :

Daily Mail : “Bale drops hint he’s ready to leave Spurs for Champions League (and forget winning the trophy, it’s the MUSIC that attracts him)”

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are both desperate to land Bale this summer in the wake of Tottenham’s failure to qualify for the Champions League. And in an interview with Esquire, Bale has spelled out what Europe’s elite competition means to him.

Is Bale now taling to Spurs through the medium of a men’s style magazine?

Esquire :

“I probably prefer Spanish football to the others,” admits the Welshman, who has been consistently linked with a move to Barcelona this year – despite insisting he’s staying at White Hart Lane for now.

So. No hint, then, that he is leaving Spurs this summer. He’s not ready, as the Mail states.

Bale adds:

“It’s very technical the way they play, they keep the ball well and whenever Spurs have played against Spanish teams in the past they’ve always made it difficult for us. So I’d say that Spanish football is probably the best I’ve seen. Obviously, I’d like to try other leagues in the future. Every player would like to get as high as they can and try different things. It’s something that the future holds and it’s something that I’m very interested to try in the least.”

So. He will leave Spurs one day.

“When you play in the Premier League, say you’re playing against a lower-end team, they set up to defend all the time, they set up to block you off,” he explains.
