Gareth Bale must leave Tottenham Hotspur if he is to “reach the next level”, according to Robbie Savage.

Bale’s impressive performances for Spurs have triggered reports linking the Wales winger with a move away from White Hart Lane, with Real Madrid said to be planning a summer swoop for the 23-year-old.

Former Wales international Savage believes Bale is already one of the top six players in the world – and feels that he must move on to another club if he is to fulfil his potential.

“Tottenham fans will not thank me for saying this, but Gareth Bale will have to quit Spurs if he is to fulfil his potential,” Savage wrote in his Daily Mirror column.

“Tottenham know that, one day, they may not be able to hang on to Bale because, in my opinion, he is already among the top six players in the world – and his stock is rising.

“For Bale to reach the next level, and become a superstar in his own right, I’m afraid he will have to move from White Hart Lane.”
