    I always assumed Bale would end up at Pool or Utd i.e. red shirt, successful, big payers, huge wages, close to Wales, he would probably declare them his boyhood club and a dream come true etc.

    To be fair their recent signings have all been about what’s best for the team and have a fair bit of resale value, much more likely United of the two imo.

    He's a Cardiff lad, so assuming his family and friends still live in that area London is closer than both Manchester and Liverpool.

    Also fairly difficult to get to Wales when you have no wheels left on your car.

    £15 million a year to play golf - that is up there with Justin Rose and people presumably.

    F*ck me, HE could pay Spurs some 50k a week to play for us, and _still_ be among our best paid players? Come ON, Levy, you know you want to!!

    He's cost too much now, and they are exactly the clubs the Madrid won't "subsidize"

    If he wants to play for a "big club" now, he will have to eat a pay cut, which it's clear he won't do (as he's fudging Madrid over for their treatment of him)

    I don't think it will happen, but we really are one of his few options, Madrid won't see us as a threat (or bad PR), they subsidize most of his wages, they can still recover 150-200K/week to spend on another player and they get a character out of the dressing room that Zidane is desperate to remove.

    Don't forget the special relationship*


    * Special as in sometimes, if we're lucky, they'll give us a reacharound while they go in dry.

    No illusions there, they will give us a special (on the last day of window) if it's the only option they have left.

    Sadly the special relationship ended a few years ago.

    So no reacharound, just dry.
