Gareth Bale’s future at Tottenham Hotspur has come under heavy speculations with Real Madrid reportedly lining up a bid for the winger, but now it seems like the Welshman has a new suitor in Bayern Munich.
Gareth Bale’s recent performances have drawn comparison with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo. The Tottenham winger has scored nine goals in the last eight matches and has almost single-handedly carried Spurs on his shoulder this season.
Recent speculations suggest that Spanish giants Real Madrid are preparing a big bid for the Welshman in the summer to lure him away to the Spanish capital. But according to reports in Dailymail, Madrid will have to compete with Bayern Munich for his signature.
Pep Guardiola, the former Barcelona manager, will take up the hot seat at Munich next summer, and according to reports, he will be handed over a £100million war chest to compete in the transfer market.
The Spaniard is already said to have marked down his transfer targets next summer and Gareth Bale is reportedly at the top of his priority list. The English daily has reported that Bayern are preparing a £50million bid for Gareth Bale in order to ward off other competitors.
Bale on the other hand, is seemingly unmoved by all these speculations and the 23-year-old is keen on improving his game and keep his ‘head down’.
‘This is probably the best I’ve been playing so far in my career. I’m enjoying my football and the team’s playing well, which obviously makes it easier for me.
‘I’ve just got to keep my head down, keep working hard. I’ve still got a lot of room for improvement.’ – Bale was quoted in press.
When asked about the rumours linking him with a move away from White Hart Lane, the winger replied –
‘I don’t take too much notice. I’m concentrating on every game and just hoping I can keep my form going.’
Tottenham lost Modric last summer to Real Madrid and Chairman Daniel Levy will try his best to retain his prized asset next summer. Whether Spurs manage to qualify for the Champions League next season might be a huge factor in deciding Bale’s future at London. But either way, the reported £50million bid by Bayern seems a bit preposterous.
