Gareth Bale Movie Rating: / five
Tottenham midfielder Gareth Bale has said that he is extremely happy with the way this season has been progressing. Bale is currently one of the six players who are nominated for the PFA player of the year award at the end of the season. This is one of the most coveted awards for a player in English football. Bale won the Young player of the year award last season. He is nominated for the category once again along with the likes of Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku. Bale is having one of his best seasons as a professional footballer after managing to score 23 goals in all competitions for Tottenham this season.
He has been widely linked with a £ 45 million move to Real Madrid in the summer, but he has rejected any talk of a transfer by saying that he is concentrating on the football right now. Bale was one of the influential players on the pitch in the recent 3-1 win over Manchester City. He has made his comeback into the first team despite still not recovering fully from the ankle injury he suffered in the Europa league match against FC Basel a few days ago. Bale is aiming to become the fifth player in the history of English football to win the PFA awards twice.
“The PFA nomination is massive. It’s great for your peers to vote for you. Hopefully I will win. To be nominated is fantastic and fingers crossed. The game against City was amazing. We knew it was massive going into it. The lads showed a lot of character. In the end, it was a fantastic turnaround. As soon as we scored the first everyone had that confidence, the fans raised the noise and gave us that belief to go forward and thankfully we were able to score two more,” said Bale.

The Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has said that he would be extremely delighted to see the back of the Tottenham winger Gareth Bale, who has caused him several problems over the years. The 23-year-old winger is regarded as one of the best in the world, with several clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona keeping tabs on his situation. After the announcement that the former Barcelona manager Guardiola will be taking over at the German club Bayern Munich, he has also been linked with a Germany as well. Over the years, Reina has suffered a lot of the hands of Bale.
Hence, the Spanish goalkeeper has said that he would be delighted if it was Gareth Bale who departed from the Premier league rather than the Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, who continues to be linked with several clubs like Paris St Germain. Bale is expected to command a transfer fee in the region of £ 50 million. The Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas recently said that the possibility of Bale staying at White Hart Lane would be strengthened if the club managed to finish in the Champions league places. Tottenham are currently fourth in the table and they have a small advantage over their arch rivals Arsenal in terms of points.
“I can’t see Luis Suarez playing in La Liga. I think he’ll stay at Liverpool. He’s a great player. So are Bale and a few others in the Premier League. If Real Madrid signs Bale, I’ll be delighted. He causes me a lot of problems,” said Pepe Reina, who himself has been linked with a move to Barcelona in order to replace Victor Valdes. The 30-year-old Valdes has been linked with a move away from Barcelona after his refusal to sign the contract with the club. Reina played for Barcelona during his childhood days.
