Bale transfer to Real Madrid gets messy including death threats

Posted on August 06, 2013 by admin

There are a number of new developments in the ongoing attempt by Real Madrid to sign the Welsh international from Tottenham Hotspur. There are reports in the English media that the 24-year old was angered by the words of his manager Andre Villas-Boas, who criticised Madrid and said the player was not for sale.

Apparently, Bale had threatened to stay away from club training today, to make his frustration and determination to move to La Liga and the Santiago Bernabeu clear. They threatened to fine him, we hear, and the outcome was that he did turn up today, but an hour later than all his team mates.

Another little aside is that the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has poured scorn on the amounts of money being talked about with the Bale transfer. It really has nothing to do with the Frenchman, but I cannot help agreeing with him. Bale is good, but he should never cost more, or even as much, as Cristiano Ronaldo. The Welshman might turn out to be as good, but Ronaldo was the complete player when we signed him from Manchester United.

Meanwhile, the Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy continues to take the mickey, now apparently demanding £100 million plus the young striker Alvaro Morata, which is plainly ridiculous. There is also a report in the Daily Star that Bale has been the subject of a death threat phoned into the training ground. Bale is being forced into this situation by the chairman refusing to honour a promise made and it is getting out of hand.

If Madrid refuse to bend over backwards for Levy, Tottenham could end up keeping the player, but they are unlikely to see the best out of him after all this.
