Undoubtedly, Gareth Bale is currently one of the best players in Europe - expertly combining his speed, strength, agility and his goalscoring instinct, he expresses, game-after-game, his match winning performances.
A majority of Bale's goals are rightfully labelled spectacular with the Welshman being able to hold a Goal of the Year contest on his own.
During the 2012/13 campaign, it was clear for all to see that Bale had a positive influence on many of Tottenham's results. Following this astounding campaign, Real Madrid have publicly demonstrated their intent to sign Bale.
While the 'big money' move is expected from Real Madrid, there is no confirmation on the price which will be paid for the Welsh wizard but a world record fee of £85 million is believed to be Madrid's first offer.
With such a huge amount of money involved in this move, should Tottenham sell Bale or try to hang on to him?
The Welsh international, over the course of the last season, has had a huge impact on Spurs' position in the table.
In the Tottenham team, during the 2012-13 campaign, Bale was their highest goalscorer snatching 21 Premier League goals.
These goals were crucial in the north London club's ability to win games and the consistency which the Welshman shown throughout the season was nothing short of outstanding.
Bale's ability to carry the team singlehandedly at times, really established his supernatural talent. There is no reason why Bale can't be even better next season and Spurs would be correct to keep such a special player.
However Bale moving to Real Madrid would bring positives to Tottenham too.
Firstly the transfer fee could help Tottenham aid their ambition for Champions League football, should it be spent correctly on the right players.
Spending the money on numerous players would allow Tottenham, not only become more successful, but also apply less pressure on one player.
Furthermore, Tottenham could contribute the money they receive towards their plans for a new stadium in order for the club to move forward.
Although it is looking increasingly likely that Bale would favour a move to Spain, Tottenham would benefit whether the Welshman remains in north London or moves to the mighty Real Madrid.
