Analysing the Transfer Gossip – 23rd July: Part Two
As we move in to the off-season, an unprecedented amount of managerial movement around Europe will surely see an already frantic transfer market go in to overdrive. This will give plenty of opportunities for transfer rumour and gossip. So how much of it is realistic?
Real Madrid are ready to spend £85m on Tottenham’s 24-year-old forward Gareth Bale.
What’s the story? Uh huh. Even though Zidane has said that they won’t be making this deal this summer.
Does it make sense? We heard this day after day earlier in the window and it died down after Real said it wasn’t going to happen so why are they dredging it back up again?
Is the price right? I don’t think there is a price that Spurs can sell at this summer and justify it personally. Maybe this will be right next summer if they finish outside the top four again but for now they need to keep Bale.
Will it happen? 2/10 – I guess there’s always a chance, but it’s so unlikely this summer.
