Bale's future at Tottenham in doubt

Published Add your comment

Tottenham could sell Gareth Bale this summer in order to balance the books, but only should they failed to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Spurs are now facing the realistic prospect of missing out on a place in Europe's premier club competition, having enjoyed a spot in the top four for the vast majority of the season.

Harry Redknapp's side are only above fifth placed Newcastle by virtue of goal difference, and Chelsea are just two points further back in sixth place.

Missing out on the Champions League may see the club's more ambitious players look to forge a career away from White Hart Lane, and the likes of Bale and Luka Modric will have no shortage of suitors.

According to, either Bale or Modric will be sold by Spurs in the summer if they are unable to book a spot in the Champions League.

Modric is being pursued by Manchester United, while Bale is reportedly being closely monitored by Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The 22-year-old Wales international scored 11 goals for Spurs before the turn of the year, but has been a little more subdued in the second-half of the season.

Bale has netted only three times since January, but this recent blip is unlikely to drive down his transfer fee come the summer window.
