I highly doubt anyone in any industry will cut his wages let alone in half to join another company when he has a binding contract on hand. No one will pay for a transfer fee for him when everyone and their dog knows he almost left for free to china last summer. Real Madrid is not in a position that can just pay his wages and bench him so Bale holds all the cards and rightly so.The problem is another club picking up his £600,000 a week wages. Madrid will happily let him go for free. I think they'd prefer to cough up half his wages and see him go on loan somewhere, knowing Bale will probably star back in the Premier League, then they can demand a transfer fee for him.
Is Bale willing to cut his wages in half to sign for Utd or Spurs though? Not sure about that part. And would Spurs or Utd take such a risk taking on a sicknote for anything more than a loan deal?
First time I remember seeing Bale was when Spurs played Arsenal in 07. He scored a free kick but the game is remembered for Adebayor's brilliant volley.It's weird, I genuinely can't remember Bale playing in the late 2000s, thought he broke through this decade. Now I'm browsing through PL highlights from the late 2000s and I see an 18 year old Bale!
That's from the period of Bale's career most football fans have deleted from their memory, so they push the myth that Bale was a flop when he first joined Spurs, rather than the 18 year old who scored 3 goals in 8 games, before suffering the first of several bad injuries that would derail him for a couple of years.First time I remember seeing Bale was when Spurs played Arsenal in 07.
