Barcelona Admit They Find Gareth Bale ‘Interesting’

After witnessing his stirring hat-trick against Inter Milan in the Champions League a fortnight ago, Barcelona have seemingly registered their interest in Tottenham’s emergent star Gareth Bale, although the Catalans have stopped short of saying anything particularly commital – such is their style.

Barca’s sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta, who issued a timely reminder of his club’s love for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas last week, told COM radio:

“[Bale] is an interesting footballer with a different style which could be positive for La Liga, but I need to make it clear, I have not spoken to anyone.”

I strongly urge all you Tottenham fans to just look at the kitten…

…just look at him taking a little sip of his drink.

There, all better.

    Definitely not seeing this happening.
    Gareth Bale is emerging as a star, and Barça already have midfield packed with stars. And really, Bale in La Liga? Nah.

  2. syndex says:

    he’s on a long term contract isn’t he so if they really want him its going to cost them big time, which barca players do you want.

  3. AT says:

    I think he works brilliant in a front 3

    Bale (instead of Pedro?)

    unlikely but nevertheless tasty

  4. Markell says:

    Ummm… You all know Gareth is a Left Back, right? Barca’s midfield is loaded, BUT they could just return him to the back line to find a place for him. Imagine having him and Dani Alves at left and right back…

  5. stoichkov's left says:

    just because he used to play left back doesn’t make him a left back now. he hasn’t played back there in a while. he’s pretty much an attacking player now.

  6. Rich says:

    Redknapp and Bale said that left back was his best position

  7. Me says:

    yeah but just look at the kitten

  8. eamogomez says:

    dey’ll probly offer 3 million cheeky bastards

  9. Thomas says:

    Yeah, I would see him in a LB role more so at Barca. It won’t happen anyway, but I have a feeling they are looking to fill in weak spots vs. unnecessarily trying to sign Cesc for 50M next summer.

  10. Markell says:

    Barca dont seem to care that their fullbacks dont play any defense… I mean once again, look at Dani Alves. He is by no means the worst defender in the world, but he attacks like a banshee, and that is what the club wants from him. Imagine having a left back doing the same as their number 2 does.
