Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas told Modric to focus on his own club but Bale, who will be out for one to two weeks after suffering a hamstring injury in a 3-0 win at Fulham, would one day welcome a new challenge.
The 23-year-old said: "It would be nice to experience other leagues and other cultures. I've always said I’m not afraid to go abroad. If the times comes and a team that’s right comes and in for me, then I’ll look at it seriously. I’ll see what happens."
