Van der Vaart: Man Utd, Tottenham better for Bale than Real Madrid

Rafael van der Vaart says Manchester United and Tottenam would suit Gareth Bale.

The Welshman is expected to leave Real Madrid this summer, having failed to adapt to Spanish lifestyle and connect with his teammates.

"Perhaps but I think he [Bale] wants to stay at Real Madrid and play more," Van der Vaart told Cadena Ser radio when asked if Bale should leave.

"But I believe that a team like Manchester United or a return to Tottenham would be better for him because people in England are different to those in Spain."
