Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle has urged Gareth Bale to reject a move to Real Madrid. Hoddle feels Bale would be best served staying with Tottenham for now and building on his remarkable 2012/13 campaign which saw him named player of the year by the Professional Footballers' Association and the Football Writers' Association.
Hoddle told talkSPORT: "It's a difficult one but if you're talking about the lad himself, I would definitely, if I was advising him, I would say he's not quite ready to go abroad.
"I think he's had a sensational year, for him to pick the reins up in that form would be nigh-on impossible straight away. I don't feel he's quite ready off the pitch to make that move."
