West Ham declined £3m Bale deal
West Ham United was one of the many teams that once declined a £3 million Bale deal that Tottenham made when the Welsh winger wasn’t exactly in his best form. The kind of hurricanes the Bale has created lately, West Ham fans won’t be very pleased with the news that the club they love so much let him go in 2010.
While the star is packing his bags with an expected mega-deal move to Real Madrid this summer, the clubs that said “No way, Jose!” will have look back on their previous choices and hope to analyse their future ones better.
Tottenham offered the former Southampton player up for either a loan or a buy for a minimal fee of £3 million when he wasn’t much of a crowd pleaser at the start of his Hotspur career. The other clubs that turned the now priceless player include Birmingham and Nottingham forest.
Gareth Bale has made an incredible achievement to go from being worth £3 million to a possible £80 million, establishing himself with fierce and swift attacks against defenders, and stylish free kicks.
