Just doing my late night flick through the Sunday papers and no prizes for guessing what story dominates most of the back pages.
The Sunday Times puts the focus firmly on the Bale to Real Madrid saga and predicts that Real Madrid are ready to smash the biggest transfer fee and set a new world record by going in for Bale at £85m.
It starts to get to the point for me now that if we are saying that Real will really put that kind of money on the table that maybe we would be more fooling to not take it (as long as it’s re-invested back into the team). Many won’t want Bale to go at any price but there’s an old cliche that everyone has a price and I am afriad we might just fall victims to that again.
£85m though is a massive amount, at that price would you take the money because it only took chelsea £100m to win the league we wouldn’t be far off, or would you stand your ground and tell Madrid to spend it on Suarez instead and poke it?
