Gareth Bale is a man in form so it’s no surprise that transfer speculation about his whereabouts next season is beginning to hot up.
The Welshman was the match-Winner for Spurs yet again yesterday and when he’s on song he’s untouchable so it’s no surprise that only the creme-de-la-creme of clubs are being linked with his signature.
William Hill though can’t decide whether he’ll be at White Hart Lane on the first day of next season or not. They make it 5/6 that he will be and 5/6 that he won’t.
At the age of 23 and after 6 years at Tottenham we think it’ll be time to move on for the Welsh Wizard. Spurs supremo Daniel Levy is known to drive a hard bargain but his resolve will no doubt be tested in the Summer when the big guns come knocking for another of his prized assets.
Hills make Real Madrid favourites to land his signature at just 11/10. The uncertainty surrounding Jose Mourinho’s future make second-guessing the ins and out at the Bernabeau in the Summer even harder to predict. In any case why take 11/10 on Madrid when it’s 5/6 to field.
For value we like the 6/1 on Old Trafford being his destination for the 2013/14 season kick-off. Ryan Giggs can’t have too many games left in the tank and Nani has looked surplus to requirements at times. Therefore there could be a void to be filled. Of course there’s been lots of speculation about a move to United for Bale and even today CaughtOffside.com ran with a story of a future £40m bid set to be tabled.
William Hill Odds on Gareth Bale’s next club:
Gareth Bale to be a Man Utd player by the start of 2013/14 season 6/1 (William Hill)
