I wouldn't be so sure about that...don't expect anymore than £35M/£40M
The days of Ronaldo deals are in the past
Are these the circles you are referring to? If you're interested, I run with some squares that are pretty nice, always going four ways rather then Carlitos infiniteIf Carlito can hook me up with the club's books, I can run some models and get you guys some hard figures.
Absolutely no way is Bale worth £40m, £60m is the minimum we'd sell him for at the minute.The commercial and footballing sides of clubs are so much more interdependent these days. The media may speculate as to the value of a player, but the club will have its own valuation which will include sponsorships, shirt sales, crowd pull etc...
So, you may believe Bale is worth (say) £40m, but to the club, the whole package may be more like £60m
Just a number I plucked from the air to illustrate the point.Absolutely no way is Bale worth £40m, £60m is the minimum we'd sell him for at the minute.
Even then we wouldn't unless Bale started sulking. To actually get a club to buy him while Bale isn't agitating for a move, £80m has to be the minimum, otherwise why sell?
I know, and listen to that prat Durham on Talkshite, he was saying £25m !!Hi BB, no probs, I understood it wasn't your valuation.
But I've seen this ridiculous valuation and even lower on t'net recently. It's just laughable,
'Madrid poised for £38m bid'
Why, why waste a phone call. Even Levy's PA wouldn't pick up the phone for that kind of two bob (or euros) offer.
And there you have it. They fish and they catch. Always people who take the bait.I expected a lot of "idiot" Spurs fans to ring up but the ones that did were pretty level headed.*
*Although they did still feed the troll, so not that level headed.
