Gareth Bale is one of the major stars in the Barclay’s English Premier League. While he is certainly proud to play for Wales, the fact doesn’t help his international career. Not being able to play at the big tournaments like a World Cup or the European Championship must be a major bummer for him. It is a similar situation like the one for Ryan Giggs, Manchester United’s superstar for almost 20 years. While he experienced the same faith with the National Team, Giggs is Welsh like Bale, he played in a top team and had plenty of international exposure.
There is nothing wrong with Bales checking on his possibilities to join a club that is playing for glory in the Champions League. Bale has quality to offer and would fit into the top teams in Europe. Bale leaving Spurs would be a major loss for the ambitions of Tottenham and could certainly put a stop on their efforts to establish a presence in the Champions League.
It has to be seen how Spurs can compete over the last few games and what eventually the outcome will be. After looking like a major competitor for third place in the Premier League, their hotness cooled down substantially. Inexperience and the continued rumors that Harry Redknapp will drop Spurs for the England job, ruined a promising campaign for Spurs.
