Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle believes Gareth Bale would choose Manchester United over Real Madrid if he was to leave Spurs.

United, Manchester City and Real have all been linked with the Welsh ace.

Hoddle told talkSPORT: “Personally I don’t think Gareth Bale wants to leave yet unless it was to one of the Manchester clubs.

“If he goes abroad he’ll find it slightly difficult. He needs to be settled off the pitch and you get the feeling that he’s had a new baby and I’m not sure if he’s ready for that [a move abroad].

“When you’re 27 or 28-years-old you might be ready and mature enough to settle. You have to be settled off the pitch before you get your form on it. It’s a really big decision for him."
