Gareth Bale Tells Andre Villas-Boas He Wants to Leave Tottenham

gareth bale Gareth Bale Tells Andre Villas Boas He Wants to Leave Tottenham

Gareth Bale has told Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas that he wants to leave the club, according to talkSPORT Radio.

Bale met with Villas-Boas today and verbally told his manager that he wants to leave the club. No written transfer request has been submitted by Bale, but his intent is clear.

With Bale wanting to leave the club, the ball is now in Daniel Levy’s court to decide what he wants to do with his talented attacking midfielder — whether he wants to sell Bale to Real Madrid, or if Tottenham wants to dig their heels in and refuse to let him go.

Yesterday there were media reports in Spain that Real Madrid were willing to pay £125million for Gareth Bale.

What should Levy do? Should Tottenham Hotspur try to extend Bale’s contract, or should the club sell Bale to Real Madrid and use the money to finance several transfer signings? Have your say in the comments section below.
