Gareth Bale has been a sensation for Tottenham this season, so much so he has recently picked up multiple awards in England.

This has sparked up a huge amount of rumours from the biggest teams in Europe - and we will look at where he could possibly be plying his trade next year.

Real Madrid

A team that love to snatch up the best talents from across the globe are Real Madrid, who have the Welshman top of their summer list.

With the possible departures of Angel Di Maria and/or Cristiano Ronaldo, Real will undoubtably be looking for a like-for-like replacement, and Bale would fit the bill.

He has the ability to get the fans in Madrid off their seats and that is exactly what they will be looking for in a player. He would be a great success if he moved to Spain - and there is a real possibility of this happening.

Manchester City

A team that would have no problem paying over £50m for a single player plus wages, but there are a lot of reasons why Bale might not be a perfect fit for Manchester City.

After failing to retain the Premier League title, City are desperate to build a team that could rival their neighbours next season and they believe Bale could provide that.

Bale, though, could prove unlikely to be that big a hit at City as recent history would show. The Welshman has been used to a large part of the season at Tottenham on the wings, and because there have been a large umber of failed wingers at City in recent seasons - including Adam Johnson, Scott Sinclair and Craig Bellamy - it shows they possibly don't know how to utilise wingers in a formation - and that could stunt the growth of Bale. 

Manchester United

Manchester United have followed Bale since before he signed for Tottenham, so they are obviously interested.

United's wingers have struggled this season to find any form and could find themselves on the way out of Old Trafford, so Bale would be a welcome addition to the squad.

Bale, though, could cost in excess of £50m and a team like Manchester United don't have the budget to be rivalling other top teams for his signature.

Also Tottenham would be unlikely to be willing to sell to another team in England so this could be an unlikely destination.

Or will he stay at Tottenham?

There could very well be a number of people who can't see Gareth Bale at Tottenham next year, but Andre Villas-Boas isn't one of them.

Although Champions League football isn't guaranteed for Tottenham, Villas-Boas firmly believes that Bale will stay.

There has been talk about a possible four-year contract extension for Bale, so this could result in him staying for another year or maybe more, and for every Tottenham fan it would be the best signing of the summer if they can keep him longer.

Twenty Premier League goals and some individual performances that will last long in the memory from Bale this season means that Tottenham will be doing all that they can to keep their star man.

As a fan of the Premier League I can only hope he stays in England.
