Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas says that Gareth Bale will be at the club next season no matter where Spurs finish in the league this season. This contradicts what Villas-Boas said last week when he claimed that Tottenham would have to finish in top four to keep Bale.
In Tottenham’s press conference today, Villas-Boas said:
“The information I have from the club, that was mistakenly written about last week, is that the player is here to remain at the club independent of the objectives of Champions League qualification being met, or not.”
While Villas-Boas and the club are adamant that Gareth Bale will stay at the club next season, their nerve will certainly be tested if and when a club such as Barcelona or Real Madrid comes in with a mammoth offer for the player. If an incredible offer does come in this summer, do you believe Spurs should sell Gareth Bale and reap the rewards by using the money to buy several world-class players?
