Man of the moment Gareth Bale will have worried Tottenham fans with his latest comments.

Bale has pledged his loyalty to Tottenham, confirming that the club want to keep their best players in north London so that the White Hart Lane club can keep moving in the right direction.

Bale has been a revelation this season and his performances over Inter Milan have propelled the down to earth Welshman to amazing levels of stardom. His form has seen him linked with moves to Manchester United, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona to name a few.

While Bale has revealed that he doesn't believe he will be sold, the Spurs winger does admit that the White Hart Lane club were unable to resist the temptation of big money from Manchester United when they signed Dimitar Berbatov.

Tottenham has been seen as a selling club over the past few seasons, notably with Dimitar Berbatov, but also with Michael Carrick.

Tottenham insisted the England international would stay at White Hart Lane, only to sell him when United came in with a big offer - making them a £15 million profit on the man they paid West Ham £2.75 million for.

Bale said with a recent interview with FourFourTwo magazine, "No, I don't think so. We're not that club anymore. They didn't want to sell Berbatov but they money was too big," he said when asked about a potential move away from Tottenham.

But Spurs fans do not need to worry just yet. The full-back turned wing wizard believes that Spurs may have turned the corner having qualified for the Champions League.

 “Today, having taken that extra step, we have to be a club that looks forward, and that means not selling players. If we are going to be the best – and that’s what we want to be – that has to be the way the club operates."
