Andre Villas-Boas has today expressed his belief that Gareth Bale will continue to play his football at Tottenham next season. This comes after much speculation that the Welsh playmaker was on his way out of White Hart Lane.
Bale, 23, was easily the standout player in the Premiership from last season and was deservedly rewarded with both the PFA Players' Player and Young Player of the Year.
The club with supposedly the most interest in Bale are none other than Spanish giants, Real Madrid. With quite arguably the biggest club side in world football it will be hard for Spurs to keep hold of their talisman.
Villas Boas though has reiterated his intent on keeping the Welsh international by stating 'we are not open to offers, whatever they are, and the player will stay'.
The absence of Champions League football though could leave Gareth Bale open to talks with Real Madrid.
What do you think? Will Gareth Bale still be a Spurs player next season?
