Has the Player of the Season played his last game for Spurs?

Spurs players look dejected as the final whistle at White Hart Lane blows and despite yet another wonder strike from their lauded Welsh wonder a 1-0 win isn’t enough to see them achieve the prize they wanted.

United’s interest in Gareth Bale took another twist on the final day of the season as Spurs failed to grab that coveted fourth place spot thereby failing to make the Champions League.

Before the game much of the talk was whether the official greatest player in the history of the universe would be staying at White Hart Lane with the general consensus being he would should Tottenham achieve Champions League football.

Well unfortunately Spurs fell just short at Arsenal beat Newcastle meaning yet again the Gunners finish the season trophy-less but more or less happy as they qualify for Europe’s biggest competition.

Spurs now face an uphill battle keeping hold of a player who despite seeming quite happy at his current club, must surely realise a talent as great as his deserves to be facing the cream of Europe.

There’s no doubt that Chelsea, Manchester City and perhaps Real Madrid will all show interest in Bale this Summer but surely a move to Old Trafford represents the best option for the Welsh international.

Bale has just started a family so a transfer abroad may not be to his liking, while moving to an English club is hardly likely to endear him to the WHL faithful, a move to United may be less offensive to them than a move to Chelsea.

City on the other hand are still manager-less, although Manuel Pellegrini seems certain to take over- have finished the season empty handed and have still yet to ever progress past the group stage in the Champions League.

Moving to the Etihad may be a step up in terms of salary and current standing but historically City arguably aren’t quite at the same level as Spurs and certainly don’t get far bigger crowds as United do.

A player of the caliber of Bale deserves to playing in front of the biggest attendances, for the land’s most successful club in football’s most famous competition, something United can offer him on all three counts.

The question is could United match offers from the likes of City or Chelsea? If the board want to give Moyes the perfect start to his Old Trafford tenure, they may just have to.

Can you see Bale joining United? Will he sign a new deal at Spurs? Is he Madrid bound? Answers below please:

    I would love Bale but he is signing a new contract with Spurs. Its his decision, but apparently it will contain a £50 million release clause for next summer. I think the board needs to back Moyes with strong cash this summer. We cannot wait a year for Bale. If he wants to stay at Spurs then it is up to him, but we need to improve this season.

    I believe Moyes will have known he was becoming the Man Utd manager a few months ago. There is no way we would not have had a plan in place over transfers and targets. Moyes needs to hit the ground running and make 3 strong signings this summer. We have Zaha arriving but we do need more quality to arrive.

    “whether the official greatest player in the history of the universe …”
    Wtf are you smoking?!

  5. Paddy says:

    Bale to Utd or City won’t happen.. You ever been to Manchester it’s a turd hole .. Just a tad better than Liverpool.

  6. Trevor says:

    He would be a better prospect than Ronaldo. He is a lot younger and his wages would not be in the hundreds of thousands every week. So for me, definately Bale.

  7. YAYA WHO @ YAHOO says:

    … & USUALLY NOR BIGGER CROWDS THEN SPURS at Eti-I-wll-never-fly-with stadium … Citeh are a small club, it would even be a huge STEP BACK FROM SPURS to Citeh in fact

  8. No brainer – got to leave mid-table Spurs if he wants to be regarded as World Class and wants to win things.

    Ok so if Levy asks for £60m + Rooney what you saying the all you loud mouth Utd fans ? You want the player of year you have to pay for it or he stays. Moyes is a joke manager just Fergies puppet bought in. No record of winning anything in 11 of premier league managing who is going to want to sign for him !

    Can see Bale staying at Spurs for one more season. Wait for an extra season to see how Moyes management goes and if Rooney leaves. Fergie leaving is going to leave a huge gap and well as Moyes has done on a budget at Everton this is a massive step up. Would be a sensible move on Bales part, you have choice of any club in world and no pressing need to move.
