Gareth Bale: Has desire to play abroad

The 23-year-old Welsh winger is constantly linked with a switch to Spain with Real Madrid and Barcelona both reportedly keen on securing his services.

Bale only signed a new long-term contract with Spurs earlier this year, but he refuses to hide his desire to experience life on the continent.

"It would be nice to experience other leagues and other cultures," Bale said.

"I've always said I'm not afraid to go abroad. If the times comes and a team that's right comes in for me, then I'll look at it seriously. I'll see what happens.

"We've all put 100 per cent in every game we have played, we've taken the competition seriously and hopefully we can win this one."

This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
