I ask the question that should Real Madrid go ahead and make a £60m bid for Gareth Bale and we were to cash in, would that be as disastrous as many think?
If we sold Bale and was to reinvest that full amount back into the squad plus any transfer funds already available maybe we could surprise ourselves. We would have to buy pure quality though to make that happen, something I feel we failed to do from the sales of Modric and VDV, I feel we bought good squad players rather than quality, we have also been guilty in the past from the sale of Berbatov of banking a lot of the funds and buying average.
now I don’t want Bale to leave for any price but maybe we can still compete at the top if it is invested properly, Liverpool didn’t do too bad from the sale of Torres but wasted a large chunk on Andy Carroll.
no doubt our der solve will be tested over the next couple of months but we will pay the price if Levy lets this drag on through the summer and this has cost us points at the beginning of the season at the start.
Selling Bale as disastrous as the pundits make out?
