Gareth Bale has been left distraught by the refusal of Daniel Levy, the Tottenham Hotspur chairman, to consider a world record €100m – £86.3m – offer from Real Madrid.
They need to let him leave TBH, he gave them 6 years, what else do they want?
£86 million?! He's worth £60 million, max. Inflated transfer prices is what will be the death of football. CR7 was worth the £80 million because he won many trophies beforehand including a UCL, three EPL, an FA Cup and a Ballon D'or. Bale on the other hand, not one trophy, a good season or two and suddenly he's slapped with ridicilous pricetags like £86 million
Tottenham just need to accept that they are not a top four club and let him go, Bale practically carried them during the latter half of last season and they still finished 5th. The only chance they have of finishing top 4 even with Bale is if either Man City/UTD, Chelsea or Arsenal have a poor season.
they had promised Bale that if Real makes a move, he will be allowed to leave, but now this Levy guys is breaking that promise, I would be distraught as well.
Don't know why Real want or need him now. Real have 3 Left Wingers, two promoted this month and Di Maria on the Right. Only way I can see this working is if Madrid offer Di Maria + cash and Bale plays on the Right. Bale isn't play Left and Ronaldo won't play CF or Right.
I believe the Spurs are not looking for any trades whatsoever.
86m? Take it, or at least come back with a non negotiable 95m. The extra 10m won't kill them.
What I don't get is; why are Manchester United not even a footnote in this transfer saga. I mean this guy is a modern day Ryan Giggs.
Oh just you wait until the Utd fans read your last sentence ha!
