Tottenham Hotspur v Ipswich Town- Pre Season Friendly

Speaking to COPA90, former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas opened up on a conversation he had with Gareth Bale while both were still at the club, which eventually became a turning point in the Tottenham star's career.

"Manchester United offered more money than Real Madrid".

According to Spanish national radio broadcaster Cadena SER, when competitions around the world were suspended earlier this year, Real Madrid was among the first clubs to propose a pay cut to players. I thought Gareth Bale was a Manchester United player.

"We have so, so many options that I refuse to say that this or that player is a first choice because if you are a first choice today you are going to be a second choice in the next squad and vice-versa". "He was the right type", he said. We want him to feel comfortable, we want him to make the decision of, "Yes I'm ready, yes I'm ready to go".

With Bale set to make his second Spurs debut against Moyes' West Ham side on Sunday, the Scottish manager spoke about his pursuit of the Wales worldwide while he was manager at the Theatre of Dreams.

The Brampton assembly plant would also see Can$50 million in investment, which woud allow additional models to be produced there. Unifor is then expected to begin negotiations with General Motors' Canadian division next week.

Welshman Bale returned to north London from Real Madrid on loan last month and was rested during the worldwide break to rebuild his fitness.

It was under Redknapp at Tottenham when Bale emerged as one of the world's most electric attacking players. His agent, Jonathan Barnett, got a new opportunity for his franchise player in the Premier against all odds.

"I think that Daniel Levy won't appreciate it too much, but we had Willian in our office at Spurs, watching the Champions League game together, before he left the room and signed for Chelsea that night", he added.

He was nevertheless not risked by Luis Enrique in their 1-0 win against Switzerland in the Nations League tie on Saturday in Madrid, but could be involved on Tuesday night in Turkey.

Bale's final 18 months at Real were not covered in glory but his overall body of work with Los Blancos, especially in the Champions League, was exceptional.
