Bale: La Liga in my future

Gareth Bale has spoken of his admiration for La Liga and his belief that his future may involve a move out to Spain.

The Welsh winger has been increasingly linked with a move to the Primera Division this season, with Real Madrid said to be prepared to mount a €90m move for his signature.

Whilst Manchester United, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain have all also been paired with the Tottenham Hotspur man, he has given encouragement to Los Blancos’ interest in particular.

“I’d say that Spanish football is probably the best I've seen,” conceded Bale in an interview with Esquire magazine published today.

“Obviously, I’d like to try other leagues in the future.

“It’s something that the future holds and it’s something that I'm very interested to try in the least.”

Bale also reflected on his preference of playing in the Champions League over the Premier League. Tottenham missed out on Champions League qualification on the last day of last season.

“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.

“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. 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.”
