Former Chelsea coach : Barca will sign Bale
Ray Wilkins has spoken out regarding the rumours linking Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona.
The Welsh winger has been heavily linked with a mega money move to reigning La Liga and Champions League holders Barcelona with some reports stating the Catalan side will make a £35m offer next summer.
Former Chelsea assistant boss Ray Wilkins has spoken out of his fear for Tottenham if they lose Bale to Barca, after Bale himself said he could not turn down the move.
“When someone like Barcelona sits up and takes notice it makes you realise that you are playing some good football, and Gareth Bale is playing some extraordinary stuff,” Wilkins told talkSPORT.
“Barcelona are the best footballing team on the planet but would Gareth Bale be going there to play league football or Champions League football? That’s the question.
“Unfortunately, Spain now has taken over the mantle of Scotland and there are only two teams that can win the title, Real Madrid and Barcelona. The rest are easy games [for those two].”
