Gareth Bale will not be sold to another Premier League club, the Daily Express is reporting today.
The Welsh superstar is linked with a move away from White Hart Lane on what seems to be a daily basis, with Real Madrid said to be at the front of the queue.
According to the report, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has vowed never to sell a key player to another English rival following the sale of Dimitar Berbatov in 2008 to Manchester United in a £30million prolonged transfer deal.
An apparent Spurs source told the Daily Express: “Daniel has made it clear ever since the Berbatov deal that he will never again sell a major asset to another English club. After that deal the feeling was, ‘What is the point – why bother bringing these players on if we are just going to sell them?’”
It’s hardly groundbreaking stuff. Anyone with a shred of business sense would be daft to strengthen a rival club – as far as us Spurs fans are concerned, Bale is to stay at Spurs.
