The Express are reporting that the Welshman has spoken about his interest in playing in the Champions League, something Tottenham won’t be doing next season.
Bale has yet to officially declare his desire to leave White Hart Lane, admit rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid. But the 23-year-old has stressed his desire to play in Europe’s elite competition.
“When you play in the Premier League, say you’re playing against a lower-end team, they set up to defend all the time, they set up to block you off,” said Bale.
“But when you play in the Champions League, all the other teams are used to winning every week, so it’s more of an open game, it’s more attacking, end-to-end.
“No one’s used to defending, everyone’s used to attacking and trying to win games, so it’s just all against all. The music is a massive thing. Zadok the Priest [Handel’s anthem that announces the arrival of the teams].
“When we first got into the Champions League, it’s one of the things that most of the lads were looking forward to, hearing it in the stadium. It’s little things like that which make it special.
“Obviously, I’d like to try other leagues in the future. Every player would like to get as high as they can and try different things. It’s something that the future holds and it’s something that I’m very interested to try in the least.”
Andre Villas-Boas is hoping the recent signing of Paulinho will convince Bale to stay at the club next season.
Should Bale stay at Spurs? Should he be honest about if he wants to stay or go?
