Spurs v Manchester United 16th January 2011, the score finishes nil-nil as the unbeaten United stretch their run to 21 Premier League games without defeat while simultaneously going top of the table.
Not the most memorable game but afterwards something happened that may come close to being worthy of note, having swapping shirts Gareth Bale leaves the field with a United top draped over his shoulder, possibly the closest we’ll ever get to seeing him wearing one.
Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas recently insisted Bale is “not for sale at any price” amidst growing rumours that United are about to launch a £60 million bid for the Welsh winger.
One would expect AVB to say that, but the smart money seems to be on Bale staying at White Hart Lane for at least one more season, plus with Real Madrid sniffing around, a move to Old Trafford seems unlikely.
Stranger things have happened but Bale to United may be more of a fantasy than a reality, hope I’m wrong……
