Anorak News | Gareth Bale joins Real Madrid for £76m as last resort

Gareth Bale joins Real Madrid for £76m as last resort

THE Daily Bale: Anorak’s look at Spurs star Gareth Bale in the news:

Daily MailParis St Germain will outbid Real Madrid’s £85m.

Marca: “Florentino Pérez to personally negotiate Real’s Bale-out”

The chances of Gareth Bale becoming Real Madrid’s latest ‘Galáctico’ hinge on Florentino Pérez. The ‘Los Blancos’ president believes that the club is the promised land for the top players and knows that there is no hotter property on the market right now than the Welsh wizard.

For this reason, Florentino is going to personally oversee the negotiations to sign the Welshman, as he has done with the rest of the ‘Galácticos’ since he first took up office in 2000.

It’s all about Pérez, who might be surprised to learn that others have a say in the matter. Anyhow, he’s tethered his reputation to getting Bale.

MiuSoccer: “FIFA agent has claims Real Madrid sign £76.5 million Spurs star?”

Bale’s got cheaper and the deal has been done. Do Spurs know?


TOTTENHAM star Gareth Bale has SIGNED for Real Madrid for £76.5m, a self-proclaimed FIFA agent has claimed

But the Spanish ‘agent’ Francois Gallardo has been dismissed as a fantasist and an attention-seeker by internet critics.

Grrr! Those internet critics. What do they know. They’re only guessing. Leave it to the newspaper experts to get to the truth.


Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has claimed that Gareth Bale is as good at football as Rafael Nadal is at tennis, suggesting that his club will pay top-dollar for the player.

Madrid always want the best. Tottenham is a very amicable club, but first we must see who our new coach will be and after that we will begin to arrange our new squad,” Perez told Marca. “I think the same as if we were to have a tennis team and Rafael Nadal asked me for these millions. For players like this – the investment they generate you and the revenue they produce, you can give everything to try and get them.”

Madrid don’t have a tennis team.

And is Bale taking the theme park shilling?

The Sun:

The Spurs ace took his mind off the ceaseless gossip surrounding his future by indulging his inner adrenaline junkie at a Tampa, Florida, theme park. Welsh international Bale, 23, didn’t look in the least bit intimated after boarding Busch Gardens’ newest multiple launch coaster Cheetah Hunt.

At one point Bale juggled a ball at the Universal Orlando Resort.

The Haringey Advertiser:

He has helped me in all aspects of my game,” said Bale, who looks increasingly likely to stay at Spurs despite interest from a number of Europe’s leading clubs.

“In training we have been working on things that I can do in games, and in matches he has given me the confidence to do what I want and do what I do best, which is a massive thing for a player.

“Everyone was excited about him coming in. He is a young manager and he has got a great past at Porto. Maybe not so much at Chelsea but, given time like he was last season, he has shown what a good manger he is. It has been a very exciting time for the club.

“He has tried his new tactics, his new style of play with us. Sometimes it does take a bit of time just to get used to it, and at the start of the season I think that was a bit difficult. But we adapted and got stronger and stronger.”

More speculation on Bale pretty much every day…
