We love Gareth Bale. The BBC loves loves him. Sky Sports loves loves him too. Now the Daily Mail loves Gareth Bale so much that they've started a campaign to "Keep Bale in Blighty" , complete with their own Bale-celebration inspired logo.
In typical Daily Mail style rhetoric they don't really address this campaign to anybody in particular but they include guff like;
The Barclays Premier League needs Gareth Bale. English football needs Gareth Bale.
On the prospect of joining one of Europe's "Big Guns"
Can they afford him? Maybe. But our game cannot afford to lose him.
This is why Sportsmail is launching a campaign to Keep Bale in Blighty.
Their love goes so far to forgive him for being the worst diver in the English Premier League
We’ll forget about the fact that he has taken a tumble too easily on occasion.
Interestingly in the "who could prise him away" they mention;
I guess that means they don't consider Man City as part of blighty.
With Champions League games coming up over the next month or so, count how often Bale is linked to Real Madrid, Barcelona or Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich. If the Daily Mail has anything to do with it, he won't be leaving London.
