No Bale sale to rival English club


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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. This is a tricky one . Last year when Luka was sold to RM we took the same line. This time it is slightly different in that all top three clubs would be in for him + PSG and maybe even Monoco although I doubt he would go there . Spurs if they sell should use this . There might even be interest from Germany with the new super team Munich interested . Levy to get the best price needs to box clever and discount no one from the deal . If he gets a bidding war we get top money for Bale . We will not keep Bale as much as I would love to keep him but unless J . Lewis puts his hand in his pocket an pulls out a fat bunch of wad then that is the only way this will go . Players like Hulk , Soldado and others are not better than Bale and I would love to see them in a team with Bale but like I say unless AVB can change Daniel Levy and Joe Lewis the only way we might see players of this quality is if Bale moves on . Its a pity because yet again Spurs are so close to being a very good team and all we need is four quality players to make that change and give us a real chance in the league .
