Fabio Capello has acclaimed Gareth Bale as the outstanding footballer in the Premier League at present. The England manager has the same admiration for the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder as Internazionale, who are expected to make a £40m bid for him in the summer. An approach by the Real Madrid manager, José Mourinho, is also feasible.
Capello was already speaking about Bale in glowing terms shortly before the possible transfer of the Wales international had been raised. "He is my player of the season so far," said the Italian.
"For me he is a fantastic player because when you prepare for a game you have to prepare to defend when he receives the ball. He is a big explosion, physically. But he is also so good technically. Every pass, every cross, every time, he is dangerous. He is so dangerous for opponents because he runs so fast with the ball."
