Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham are the three teams remaining in what has become a salivating battle for Champions League qualification.  

It has been a tough campaign for all three in one way or another and each team have their own claim to the top four throne but with the battle swaying towards Chelsea and Arsenal the question has to be raised. If Tottenham do not make the top four will Gareth Bale go?

The immediate answer would be yes. Gareth Bale has blown people away with his performances the last few seasons. Having scored 19 Premier League goals this campaign he has won both the PFA Player of the Year award (Second time), and PFA Young Player of the Year award replicating Cristiano Ronaldo's feat when he was at Manchester United.

So where could Bale end up?

Real Madrid

Seems a likely destination, Bale has spoken of his admiration of Cristiano Ronaldo. He has also stated how he would enjoy plying his trade overseas and with Real Madrid seemingly very interested, then this move is surely possible. If Bale was to team up with Ronaldo at Real, then the Spanish giants could become one of the great European forces. 

Manchester United

Sir Alex Ferguson would definitely like to make him a part of the squad and Bale would obviously be tempted by moving to the champions and United would have to be the front runners if Bale wanted to stay in England

The temptation to emulate his former Welsh team-mate Ryan Giggs at Old Trafford could also be a desirable one for Bale. 

Manchester City/Barcelona

Both teams lag a little behind their rivals in interest of Gareth Bale. City may well be interested and could easily pay him a good wage and afford his transfer fee. 

They will be looking to make a big signing this summer after losing their crown and Bale would be the obvious choice. Barcelona seem more interested in snatching Neymar and have shown no real interest in buying Bale so it seems likely that it is off the cards.


As it stands Bale really needs to be playing at the highest level now and that is the Champions League. He will be turning 24 over the summer and will want to be further making his mark in years to come.
