baleThe chances of United signing Tottenham’s Gareth Bale took another turn for the unlikely this morning with news that Real Madrid are set to smash the world record transfer fee to lure the Welsh winger to the Bernabeu.

The Times notes:

Real Madrid are ready to break the world transfer record with an audacious £85m swoop for Gareth Bale, as well as splashing out £40m on Luis Suarez. Combining the two Premier League stars with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema would then give Madrid the world’s first quarter-billion-pound forward line.

This won’t be the first time the Spanish giants have broken the world record for a transfer fee as it’s almost a perennial occurrence for Los Blancos. Not only have Madrid smashed the world’s largest fee for our very own Ronaldo, but Kaka, Luis Figo and Zinedine Zidane have all earned the moniker ‘world’s most expensive player’ after a move to the Bernabeu.

There’s little doubt Madrid have the financial clout and the willingness to spend such a fee, there’s also little doubt United would balk at the idea of spending more than we received for Ronaldo on a player not in the same class.

Maybe now we can close the book on this particular rumour and focus back on Wesley Sneijder….

    All this 85 Million crap is nonsense Madrid offered 45 plus a player but Levey won t take any Player Balee is another ball game to Modric. This is why selling your prime asset when you are looking for sponsors to build a new stadium would be stupid to say the least. Taking 85 Million when Spurs could double that by winning the league or Ufa Cup a gateway to Champs League. If Spurs dont match Bales ambition on the field like they have off it then he will leave . But i believe Spurs are not far of a top top team and Bale staying will make it even better.More players will be leaving Spin with the austerity problems they are having.

    What nonsense! £85m for Bale, your having a laugh. The guy is a good talent but not worth £85m, after all Ronaldo at 24, had already won the CL, three premiership titles and the Ballon da gor at Man Utd. Man Utd should rather sign two world class midfielders and a centre back, because these are the positions that need fixing!

    A champions league player in a europa league team. Spurs fans must be havin a ball out of dis… He isn’t even worth half of 85mil… Trust me… He’s good, he’s young, he’s smart but dat’s all he is. And yes you where undefeated against united but how many trophies did dat get U? United won d league and U couldn’t even make 4th place vs a lousy arsenal… If spurs can’t match his ambitions, he’ll leave anyways so stop fooling around.

      He will leave, of course, but not to Man U and that’s the point. Just like a top Man U player will leave to go to a bigger club.

    Spurz is SHIIIIIIIIIT. Bale has to leave

  6. jack says:

    One thing wrong with all you spurs fans is your heads are in the clouds. You always seem to add 20 mill to a value of any player you happen to sell. But when you go to buy a player you expect to get them for like 7 mill less ! Fucking mickey mouse club that you are !!!!

    • james says:

      Or play dirty and poach youngsters by sending them to clubs abroad and buying them cheaply, (fryers come to mind?)

      leaches! that’s what they are.

  7. Soccerisma says:

    Spurs will never sell him to a rival, the same they did with Modric when everyone talked about him being the perfect replacement for Scholes
