    Makes perfect sense to be linked to an under performing looking past it big name. Who else but us would sign him on huge wages and for record money?

    Because we signed Sanchez doesn't mean we will go after every other past it player. By the sounds of it, we have no interest in Bale and it's not the clubs fault they get linked to Kroos.

    Edit: I read your post wrong.
