LONDON - Just four years ago Gareth Bale was considered a jinx and a flop, and faced being offloaded on the cheap by Tottenham. Jared McCann Jersey . Failing to live up to expectations, the disillusioned gangly teenager endured more than 1,500 minutes on the pitch across 28 months before finally featuring on a winning side in the Premier League for Tottenham. Fast forward to 2013 and the now-muscular, speedy 24-year-old Bale is one of European footballs most potent attacking forces and the most sought-after asset in the summer transfer window. He could also be on the verge of becoming the worlds most expensive footballer. Real Madrid appears to be leading the chase for Bale, who would be emulating Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham in leaving the Premier League to become the Spanish clubs latest Galactico. "Real Madrids fans will be purring at the thought of having possibly him and Ronaldo in the same team," said former Tottenham player and manager Glenn Hoddle. "They can go back and challenge the world again." To prize Bale away from north London, however, Madrid is likely to have to improve on the world-record fee of 93.9 million euros (then $131 million) it paid Manchester United for Ronaldo in 2009. British and Spanish media have reported that Madrid has offered 100 million euros for Bale, although neither Tottenham nor Madrid has publicly commented on the bid. Although Tottenhams public posturing has seen a "not for sale" sign officially left dangling over Bale during the summer, it would be hard for the north London club to reject such a hefty wad of cash and retain a player agitating to join a team challenging for top titles. Because, for all the mesmerizing footwork on the ball, eye-catching goals from free kicks and defence-splitting surges, Bale doesnt have a single winners medal for show for his six years at Tottenham. Bale, who has not commented on the speculation, reported to training as usual at Tottenham on Wednesday, and Hoddle is among the many current and former players hoping he will be staying with Spurs for one more season. "I just sense that maybe he might go for the wrong reasons," said former Tottenham player and manager Glenn Hoddle. "If he wants to go just for football reasons I think it might be better in a years time or maybe two years time." It was in May 2007 that Tottenham paid just 5 million pounds (then $8 million) to bring the 17-year-old Bale from Southampton, the south-coast club then playing in the second tier. Although he scored three times in his first four starts, a series of injuries stymied his progress and he went on that frustrating run, becoming a symbol of poor results until emerging as a substitute 84 minutes into his 25th Premier League game — a 5-0 rout of Burnley. Since then, Bale has never looked back. Neither has Tottenham, which at one point was reported to have tried to use Bale as a make-weight in deals to bring in new players. After shaking off his substitutes role in January 2010, Bale began to consistently show the flair and pace that displaced left back Benoit Assou-Ekotto from the starting line-up. And, as the attacking side of Bales game began to flourish, then-manager Harry Reddknapp pushed Bale onto the left wing. Having helped to steer Tottenham into the Champions League for the first time in May 2010, Bale was rewarded with a lucrative new deal — the first of three successive annual contract upgrades. Bale announced himself to the world with two dazzling displays against Champions League holder Inter Milan in the group stage in the 2010-11 season, including a hat trick at the San Siro. As Tottenham fought off interest from rival teams, Bale was named the 2011 player of the year in England by his footballing peers. But Bale has begun to outgrow Tottenham, with the team failing to return to the Champions League despite his goal-scoring prowess and searing pace. His importance to the team was underscored last season by the fact his 21 leagues goals, many from being deployed in a more central position, helped win 22 points for Spurs, although they still finished a place outside of the top four. With his national team Wales unlikely to qualify for a major tournament, it is at club level where Bale will have to make his mark like compatriot Ryan Giggs. "He is such an exciting player, but more than that, he has a good attitude as well," Giggs said recently. "He can go far in the game." Named English footballs player of the year by his fellow professionals and journalists last season, Bale appears to be preparing the groundwork for the enhanced fame that a move to Madrid would bring. Earlier this year, he filed an application to trademark his goal celebration, a heart-shaped hand gesture he dedicates to his long-time girlfriend, to use on merchandise. But while Bale is the superstar at Tottenham, he could find himself in the shadow of Ronaldo in the Spanish capital if he didnt make an immediate impact. "When you go abroad the first four, five, six months could be difficult for him to regain that form," Hoddle said. Connor Brickley Jersey . To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. Aaron Ekblad Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. LONDON -- FIFAs new anti-racism task force will ask footballs governing body next week to approve a mandatory five-match minimum ban for any player found guilty of racist abuse, a person with direct knowledge of the situation said Friday. The anti-racism task force is to report to the FIFA Congress in Mauritius next week, aiming for FIFA to introduce the mandatory ban in all 209 member nations. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the sanctions ahead of the congress. Jeffrey Webb, who heads the FIFA task force, would not confirm the exact minimum sanction being recommended. "I cant speak about that yet," Webb said. "Were looking at making sure that is spread across the 209 member associations and, regardless of what UEFA does or CONCACAF does, from a global standpoint, there must be certain minimum standards. "Its time to make people accountable . MacKenzie Weegar Jersey. .. FIFA must set the minimum standard and say, These are the sanctions, and if you infringe on this, these are the consequences." FIFAs disciplinary code currently has a five-game minimum ban for racism but it only applies for players in international competitions. UEFA this week endorsed a more stringent 10-match sanction for racist abuse to apply for matches in European competitions. FIFA President Sepp Blatter set up the anti-racism task force after AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng led his teammates off the field when he was racially abused during a friendly against Italian fourth-tier side Pro Patria in January. It was the latest in a spate of racial-abuse cases among players and fans to blight the sport in recent years, including high-profile incidents that led to the suspensions of Chelsea defender John Terry and Liverpool striker Luis Suarez in the Premier League.
