Gareth Bale: What will the summer hold for the Tottenham star?
With Gareth Bale showing world-class form, will he leave Tottenham at the end of the season?
Gareth Bale has been in incredible form this season and has been the leading star at Tottenham.
The winger has all the attributes needed to be one of the best players in the world, with terrific pace, pinpoint passing and blistering shots.
At just 23-year-old, he looks like a player that can change a game in a matter of minutes, and this has prompted many clubs to exhibit an interest in signing the Welsh playmaker.
Real Madrid have been keeping a close eye on Bale, as he could be a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, should he return to his former club Manchester United in the summer.
The talented forward has many similar characteristics to Ronaldo, including his strength, shot, crossing and speed. This could also be a chance for Bale to link up with his former Spurs teammate Luka Modric, who joined Madrid from the London club in the previous summer.
Barcelona have also shown interest in adding Bale to the list of world class players that they already have in their ranks. Although an offer from such a huge club would be very tempting, let's not forget that forcing your way into such a star-studded line-up is not a very easy task.
It's impossible to talk about a big-money transfer without mentioning Manchester City's interest. City will definitely be looking to strengthen their team due to their failure to defend the Premier League title, and Bale certainly looks like a player that can help them regain it.
Although it is interesting to imagine Bale joining one of these big-spending clubs, there is also a big chance that he could stay at Spurs for one final season, especially if they will be able to offer him the luxury of Champions League football.
