Bale in big money bid from mystery club


Gareth Bale

John Toshack says Spurs’ Gareth Bale was the subject of a “big-money bid” in the summer.

The Welsh manager refused to name which club had made the offer to Tottenham for our left-sided magician, who has been a revalation since he came back into the team in January.

Toshack said: “It was a big-money bid – it’s big money to me anyway. You’ll have to ask Tottenham, they know about it.

“Gareth is aware people are looking at him and people are interested.”

When asked who the bid was from, Toshack said: “I wouldn’t do that out of confidence for the people who have informed me.”

Toshack added: “Two years ago when we started the World Cup qualifying campaign, the first three matches Bale was named man of the match against Azerbaijan, Russia and Liechtenstein.

“I know Harry thinks he has performed some kind of miracle at White Hart Lane but it is certainly not a surprise to us. We know full well what Gareth can do.

“I think the fact the left-back (Benoit Assou-Ekotto) was injured at Tottenham opened the door for him a bit and that shouldn’t have been the case. But it was and he’s taken full advantage.”

He continued: “He’s still a young lad and there’s things he has to learn but there are a lot of people looking at him and taking an interest in him.

“I just hope he can take his club performances into our games at international level.

“He’s in Champions League football now which is another platform for him to show what he can do and if he steers clear of the injury problems he has had he’s got everything going for him to be a big, big player.”


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. If it was Manure, we`d have known about through at the start of the transfer window, Old Red anyway, as he has done in the past, he would get his friends in the media to slap it on the back page, "Fergie eyes Bale in mega bucks deal! etc etc etc. Me thinks it was Real Madrid, or AC Milan?

    We should never sell to clubs we are competing with for Euro places, No to Manure et al.

  2. Funny he should say that i remember reading on his wiki page something like 25th august real madrid make a 35m euros offer for bale :s strange!!!

  3. If Bale was connected to any deal for VDV, ie, Real Madrid have first refusal for our wizards services? Well, does not mean we have to let him go next season, they can have him on his 30th birthday for 30mil. Lol


  4. What is Toshack trying to do by announcing alleged offers from a club not his own, to a club not his own? He’s been around long enough to know that it’s not his place to make comments like this. Seems like he’s using his position to deliberately destabilize Bale by making his agents aware of the bid. Maybe we should stop helping Toshack by letting him have Bale at all, if this is how he’s going to repay us.

  5. remember when we lost every game he played in and he was pants, how the ugly duckling has matured into a graceful swan…not to sure about the 45-50mil valuation though, shouldn't be sold whatever the price…defo one to keep.

  6. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read anything like this before. So good to search out someone with some original thoughts on this subject. realy thanks for starting this up. this web site is one thing that’s wanted on the internet, somebody with a bit of originality. useful job for bringing something new to the internet!
