Gareth Bale to Tottenham rumours rise up once again despite the obvious obstacle in the way
By Bruce Grove -

For some Tottenham fans, it would be great to see Gareth Bale back in N17 and there is no doubt he would be a massive asset on the field of play and when speculation over his future is splashed across the footballing media hopes are rising that we may see him once again in a Spurs shirt but for the umpteenth time, it is not going to happen.

Bale has come out and blamed Real Madrid for stopping him leaving the Spanish champions but he is being very disingenuous (SkySports).

If the Welshman agreed to a significant wage cut then he could leave, he still has a long term contract at the Bernabeau and Real want some sort of fee and that is understandable and there is no reason that cannot be achieved.

But when the 31-year-old is on £600k per week then something has to give and on the face of it, it is Bale that will not give any ground.

For example, if he agreed to a £200k weekly wage and Madrid wanted say £20 million then a deal would get done in a heartbeat.

But Bale will not accept that sort of wage and that is why he cannot leave Madrid and that is why he is destined to spend the next two seasons on the periphery only playing for Wales.

Now, this is an assumption but I am fairly confident that it is a correct one and that is that there is no way that Daniel Levy will pay Gareth Bale £600k per week even if he was available for a free transfer. In fact, I doubt very much that Levy would sanction a wage higher than Harry Kane, not if he wants to keep the England captain on board.

So, in conclusion, it is nice to dream about Bale coming back to Tottenham but that is all it is, a dream. It simply is not going to happen no matter what the media or pundits are spouting.

it looks like bale and Real Madrid are at War but I have a solution how Tottenham can get a deal done but all parties will have to take a hit and be winners at the same time.

if Tottenham pay 21m for bale and give him 200k a week
Real Madrid pay bale 200k a week for 2 years
bale take a 200k a week paycut because no one in the world is going to pay him 600k a week

so Tottenham are takeing a hit because they paying 21m and 200k for a 31 year old but are winners as will because they get a world class player

Real Madrid take a hit because they have to pay bale 200k a week for 2 years but are winners as will because they get 400k a week of there payroll and 21m and 200k a week for 2 years add up to 21m

bale take a hit by loseing 200k a week but are winners as will because hes still gets 400k a week and at a club and fans that love him and play most of the time.

Well Gareth in his comments to the media has made it absolutely clear he wants to play , but it’s RM who have caused the problems.

His contract runs for another 2 years so if he transfers here and gets 200k pw he’s lost out on 300k pw which would have to be reimbursed by Madrid- that’s approximately £31m.

So I’m sure if Madrid paid him that £31m he’d be happy to leave and take a £200k wage elsewhere.

The question is how much Madrid are willing to lose. If we gave them £20m for the transfer, and they paid Bale £30m to get them off their books, they’d be £10m in the hole. Who’s to say they wouldn’t choose that option over having him sit in the stands for another season costing them £30m in wages. It could be the better option for Madrid and therefore it’s possible.

The question is, if Bale were able to move, would he come here?

Similar to the Lional Messi scenario.. Only City, United, and maybe chelsea could afford bales current wages.. Also PSG, maybe Bayern… Then looking at Chinese clubs….. He would have to accept a huge drop in money and trophies to come to us.. Why on earth would he do that…… I would love him back. What a player. We can’t afford him though.

Utd paid Sanchez 500k pw and it stung them big time. even they wouldn’t pay anyone that wage now. I doubt if he would pick the same wage up at any other club now.

Manure can and will still spend high they are one of the few… Bale will still demand big money, same as messi, they are approaching the twilight zone but neither are done yet.. Top players.

Yeah I agree they are top players – Messi obviously the much better player, but both great.

It’s just that looking at Utd’s recent pattern of transfers, it looks like they aren’t interested in paying that much in wages. They’re buying younger players with something to prove rather than galacticos. Of course they could make an exception for Bale, but I doubt they, or anyone else, would give him what he earns at the moment.

What’s clear is Bale will not want to be financially out of pocket, so Madrid will have to pay him off if he leaves any time i the next year or two.

This is nonsensical. Why would, or more accurately why SHOULD he accept a 60% wage cut? He’s not “disingenuous”, he’s 100% correct – Real Madrid don’t want him, they’ve been very clear about that, he found an exit – with sufficient wages, and the club blocked it at the last minute, demanding a large fee. That’s not on Bale, that’s on the club.

A footballer gets, if they’re lucky, 10yrs of high salaries, and are out of a job by mid 30s. If I had one chance to make all the money I’d need to support my family, and only had about 3yrs left to make it, not a chance in h#@% I’d take a 4M/yr paycut. The entire notion is outright nonsense. The bleatings of the clueless whiners, who tell themselves that they’d take a massive pay cut “to play regularly”. The man has won everything worth winning at the club level, if he never plays another match he’ll still be one of the most accomplished UK footballers in history. This is tired rubbish.

You’re right, there’s no way he would take a hit on what’s already contracted to earn. Madrid would have to pay him off, that’s why the ball is in their court.

Is he even interested in playing football again with any enthusiasm except when he is wearing a Wales shirt?
