David Gill has approached Spurs chairman Daniel Levy about a deal for the 23-year-old, with the north London outfit hoping to tie the Welshman down to a new five-year contract.
70 million for Bale. sheesh, talk about over-hyped and over-priced.
In today's transfer market I am not at all surprised by this. But considering Madrid paid ~35m for Modric, 70m for Bale seems right given that he scores three times what Modric did from midfield.
They're just surprised the cant get him on the cheap like the did with van persei.
It's what I've been saying all along. He's a very good player, but never £70m and IMO never will be. Not a penny more than £40m, and that's pushing it.
Hes worth at the least £50 mil to spurs.
If they finish top four then I would agree but if they drop out of the top 4 then he is worth 40m max and they would be stupid to hold onto him.
Well, if Liverpool paid 35 million for Carroll, I'd say they'd be happy paying 1.2 billion for Bale.
