FORMER Tottenham defender John Scales reckons Welsh wizard Gareth Bale will quit the club this summer.

And Scales, who spent four years at White Hart Lane between 1996 and 2000, fears his departure will serve as a hammer blow to the Premier League as a whole.

Real Madrid are keen on taking Bale to the Bernabeu and are willing to shell out a huge £60m for his services.

Ex-England international Scales told StarSport: "I think Bale might end up leaving.

"He's still young and, if I were him, I'd be tempted to go and take the challenge.

"Of course, I don't want him to go. I hope he stays at Spurs and I don't want Spurs fans thinking I'm telling Bale to go and move.

"But he's been phenomenal this season and he's shown he can be a massive influence on games.

"Like [Luis] Suarez, it's testament to how well he's done that Real Madrid are interested.

"I worry for the Premier League that he'll leave."

Madrid seem to be leading the race for Bale's signature - but Scales believes that it's not just a one-club race for the talented 23-year-old.

"He might go to Bayern Munich because [Pep] Guardiola is there," Scales said.

"He might go to Spain or PSG or wherever.

"All the top clubs are interested in players that can change games like he can."
