Now Perez Suggests £85m Bid For Bale

Another day, another juicy sound bite from Real Madrid regarding Gareth Bale.

It remains to be seen whether or not the Spanish giants will chase their running mouth with a bag of cash, or if Spurs will even accept it.

But Los Blancos certainly do love making headlines about Bale, and the money they would happily lavish to lure him from the Lane.

Earlier this week it was Zinedine Zidane who suggested it may take a record sum to sign Bale, and now the Frenchman’s boss at Madrid has followed suit.

President Florentino Perez says that he would not hesitate to drop £85 million in Tottenham’s piggy bank in order to sign Bale, and that he would consider the money a healthy “investment.”

"For those players and investments that generate and produce income, you can give everything in life," Perez told Madrid mouthpiece Marca, when asked about the likelihood of a transfer move for Bale.

"I showed in [the Galcatico  era of] 2000 that with those players you change the dynamic and go from losing to winning.

“But we don’t speak of Bale so much because he plays at a friendly club to us and they will be annoyed if we speak. I know their chairman well and he doesn’t like these things."

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy likes to drive a hard bargain for sure. But as much as he loves Bale at his club, you can bet that if Real do dangle an £85 million cheque in front of him, the only driving he will be doing is to the bank!

The questions would then become: whether nearly £100 million to spend on new players could help Spurs make the step up to genuine title contenders in England, or if losing best player Bale will set them back immeasurably. And would blowing so many bucks on Bale help Los Blancos to beat Barcelona?
