Gareth Bale insists leaving Tottenham was never an option during the summer.
The Welshman’s future was in doubt when the two Spanish giants, Real Madrid and Barcelona, were rumoured to both be interested in the 23-year-old Tottenham winger. However, he ended all rumours when he signed a new four year deal at the North London club.
When asked if he considered leaving Spurs at the end of last season, the winger said: “No. I’ve always been focused on my game, playing football, and I’m enjoying myself here at the moment so there’s no reason to go anywhere.
“I’m enjoying my football, we’ve got a great squad now and hopefully next season we can get Champions League football, where we should be.”
Gareth Bale and Tottenham have had a slow start to the new season picking up only one win in the first four games.
