The end of the playing season and the start summer transfer season is almost upon us. Rumors will be swirling for transfers for a variety of players.
One such player is Gareth Bale. At only 21 years of age, he is one of the emerging stars in the Premier League. He has had a stellar tenure with Tottenham the past few seasons.
Each season he has improved. At such a young age and with a proven track record of improvement, it seems as though the sky is the limit for Bale.
Tottenham, along with the rest of Europe know of Bale's potential and value. They would surely like to retain him. Ideally for Spurs fans he will stay and help Tottenham reclaim a spot in the Champions League.
He is young and may not feel the same urge or desire as an older veteran to leave and play for a Champions League club or club poised to win their league title.
At the same time though, Tottenham's failure to qualify for the Champions League next season may be the reason that some of these rumors may actually come to pass. Clubs with more money and revenue may be able to make that offer that Bale and most players would be unable to refuse.
Tottenham seems to know that they will be getting enticing offers and have already indicated that Bale can test the waters and they are willing to entertain offers.
Here are five of the potential destinations for Bale should he leave White Hart Lane this summer.
