Several reports have surfaced in today’s newspapers that Tottenham Hotspurs’ star player Gareth Bale may be on his way out of the club at the end of the season.

It has been reported that former Wales manager John Toshack has recommended the Wales international to the Catalan giants Barcelona.

Rumours of the amount it will take to buy Harry Redknapp's prized asset have started at around the £50 Million mark, which would be the largest amount for a defender in the history of world football.

The versatile left-sided player has lit up the Premier League and Champions League this year and shows no sign of stopping, despite an average performance this weekend against Bolton Wanderers.

Of course, Harry Redknapp will never choose to sell the player under any circumstances if he truly wants to build on what they achieved last season by qualifying for the Champions League proper.

It is lucky that this report that Barcelona has already tabled a bid is probably rubbish due to the fact that it wouldn’t benefit either side to buy/sell in January as Bale has already competed in the Champions League.

If Bale were to leave Spurs, I can see the team suffering and never reaching the Champions League for a long time to come.
