Spurs ace Gareth Bale has told Andre Villas-Boas that he’d be keen to work with him again – even if he transfers to Real Madrid.
Tottenham Hotspur superstar Gareth Bale may be closing in on a move to Real Madrid, but hopes to work with Andre Villas-Boas again in future according to the London Evening Standard.
The Wales international has developed into a truly world class player under Villas-Boas’ stewardship at White Hart Lane, and hopes their paths cross again.
Of course, Real Madrid only appointed Carlo Ancelotti as manager this summer, but such is the tumultuous nature of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu hotseat that Bale feels it is not unrealistic to hold out hope that the pair can collaborate again at a later point in their careers.
Bale’s evolution from underperforming left back to goalscoring attacking midfielder has been a staggering process, and his 31 goals in all competitions last season helped Spurs push arch rivals Arsenal close to the fourth UEFA Champions League spot.
That fifth place finish is what has halted Bale from signing a new contract at the north London club, as he wants to play in Europe’s premier competition, and may well be what results in the conclusion of his Real Madrid transfer saga for a world record fee.
Perhaps one day, Andre Villas-Boas will manage Gareth Bale again.
