The Rumour

Football - Tottenham Hotspur Training

AC Milan are weighing up a bid for Tottenham fullback Gareth Bale.

Corriere dello Sport says Milan are turning to the Wales international after seeing a deal for Porto wing-back Aly Cissokho collapse due to a failed medical.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani and transfers guru Ariedo Braida have discussed the prospect of moving for Bale this week.

The former Southampton defender fits the new transfer profile at Milan and if the Cissokho deal cannot be salvaged, Milan will bid for Bale.

The Analysis

Now this is an odd one. Birmingham City were the last club linked with a move for the young Welshman and then two days later Serie A giants AC Milan are interested, that’s some jump and leads me to believe that Gareth’s agent has been working overtime!

Bale is a good player with great potential but is of course now more famous for never winning a Premier League at the club, and that’s after 24 attempts. The former Southampton man only just turned 20 and has a bright future and given that Harry Redknapp appears to be looking to trim his squad he may well be sacrificed but is a move to the San Siro a realistic propostion?

The Likelihood
