Spurs starlet admires ‘technical’ Spanish game.
Real Madrid target Gareth Bale has hinted that he hopes to play in La Liga one day after revealing his admiration for Spanish football.
The Tottenham forward is wanted by Los Blancos this summer after a stunning season for the north London outfit.
But Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has stressed the 23-year-old will not be sold, despite the club’s failure to secure Champions League football.
The Wales international is thought to have a price tag in excess of £80m, which has not deterred Real president Florentino Perez and assistant manager Zinedine Zidane from publicly voicing their desire to sign the forward.
And Bale has revealed that he prefers Spanish football to other European leagues and says he hopes to try his hand in a foreign country in the future.
“I probably prefer Spanish football to the others,” the triple player of the year told men’s magazine Esquire.
“It’s very technical the way they play – they keep the ball well and, whenever Spurs have played against Spanish teams in the past, they’ve always made it difficult for us.
“So I’d say that Spanish football is probably the best I’ve seen. 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.”
