Barca coy on Bale interest

BY foxsports • November 15, 2011

Reports in Spain last week suggested Barcelona had sent an official to watch Bale in action against Fulham. The Welshman's ability to play at both left-back and as an attacking midfielder could make him an attractive proposition for the European champions. However, Rosell is refusing to confirm any interest in Bale and believes the club could be priced out of a move for the former Southampton youngster if they did express an interest in the player. "I do not know if Bale interests us," Rosell told Al Jazeera. "If I did, I would not say, because his price would go up. [Tottenham] would not ask for €40million [£33.2m], but €50m [£42.8m]. "In any case, even if we wanted him, we would never pay €40m for him." Bale put pen to paper on a new deal at White Hart Lane in March that sees him tied to Spurs until 2015.
