Andre Villas-Boas admitted that there is a possibility of Gareth Bale leaving Tottenham. He said this after Bale’s impressive performance in the 2 – 1 victory over Liverpool.
Bale has been extenisively linked with Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. Spurs could advantage from this situation and it is being reported that they have set a price of £50 million on the Welsh. AVB admitted that an offer from the Spanish giants would be too much for Bale to resist.
“At the moment he is performing extremely well for Spurs and we are amazed at what he can do for us. He is on to a great career.
“Obviously Tottenham as a football club want to keep him here for as long as we can but we understand players like this have propositions and a market which is the nature of the game,” Villas-Boas said.
Villas-Boas praised Bale on Wednesday, by comparing him the Cristiano Ronaldo, after Bale scored from a set-piece.
“Players learn through what they see. With Ronaldo we saw that you can almost hit under the ball and it gains an effect where it drops and changes direction. He [Bale] has the power to do that. He keeps on practising this technique and we are pleased to have it.
“He’s scoring more than last season by this stage. He is more free, getting more of the ball, the team is creating conditions for him to appear more. He is enjoying himself on the pitch.
“His physical freshness, his motivation towards playing, what he does offensively and defensively. He takes over the whole of the left wing. He helps the full-back so much. It’s never-ending. His pace, it’s electric.
“This is a player who was captain for 90 minutes against Lazio, played 90 minutes against West Ham, Liverpool, he keeps on going. Him and Lennon down the channels have been absolutely amazing this season,” added Villas-Boas.
This sounds more like an invitation to Barca and Madrid and if Bale joins them, he might be a great addition to their squads.
