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.

"Everybody wants to be playing in the Champions League. Obviously we were unfortunate not to get in there last season but the UEFA Europa League is the next best thing.

"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."
