Tottenham supposedly asking for $150 million dollars plus Morata for Bale. As much as I'd like to see Bale in Madrid, that is just ridiculous.

If Real have actually made a world record bid, Tottenham would be stupid to turn it down.

Bale is awesome, but if Spurs get £100M plus Morata for him, they deserve a high five.

Who would be second team Striker for Madrid with Higuain and Morata gone?

Both sides of this "deal" are ******* ********. Bale is not remotely worth £100M, and Levy is absolutely ******** if he believes he is.

No player is worth 100 million. Real Madrid are asinine for considering spending this kind of money on one player given the team they already have. There is a lot of speculation on whether or not RM have really made such a big offer and I tend to think they haven't. Levy is a shrewd business man and I have to think if he was offered anything above $85 million he would take it in a heartbeat and reinvest it in the squad + stadium upgrades. The media is doing a really poor job of covering this debacle. The majority of the stories originate from Spanish (AKA biased towards RM) media and make it look like a deal is as good as done. There are zero quotes from anyone in the know on the Spurs side (Levy, AVB, Bale etc) indicating that a deal is anywhere near being done.

As a Spurs fan I just want it to be over. Either sell him now or resolve that he is staying at least until January. The longer it goes on, the longer the squad is unsettled and the greater the chance of early trouble in the PL. Spurs have a really easy start to the season and a squad surrounded by uncertainty won't capitalise on it like a squad that is focused and ready.

Great deal for everyone. Spurs get some cash and effectively swapped him for Nacer Chadlie who a) fits the 4-3-3 which Dempsey is less likely to be effective in and b) has more long term potential. Seattle get the best American footballer player in the world andcreate a lot of interest in the team and the MLS in general.

It's easy to say re-invest in players, but who can they get that'll keep them in the race for the CL? Better to try and offer Bale a raise for a year with the understanding that next summer they'll sell him to real for crazy money at the start of the summer, so they have time to actually re-invest the money they get for him.

Completely agree. All the speculation and time wasting is ruining Spurs offseason.

Plus, Dempsey can be loaned back out to an EPL side in the January window. Pretty great move for all sides. Wish Houston would have been able to bring him in (they were his first choice since hes from the area, but they have no cap room), I might have actually watched a few Dynamo games. Cant hate on Seattle though, awesome fanbase.

Glad to see drugs are still readily available in the Liverpool area. Brendan Rodgers reiterated that Suarez is just as good as Bale and should be worth nine figures if that's what Bale is worth.

First, the notion that Suarez's talent = Bale is laughable at best. Secondly, the idea that a 26 year old malcontent with authority and sportsmanship issues is worth the same as a media darling whom is 2 years younger AND a much better player is the cake topper.

Puff. Puff. PASS Mr. Rodgers.

Bale isnt much better than Suarez. Better? Maybe, but not MUCH. Certainly doesnt have Suarez's issues though. Plus theres the age, as you mentioned.

Yeah, I don't think the difference in talent is that huge. Probably the two best in the PL at the moment.

Plus he is hardly going to talk down his guy when trying to generate profit, since clearly there is a strong chance he goes

Bale is absolutely better than Suarez. I guess I wouldn't say much, but the difference is clear.

You don't watch enough Suarez. He was just as good as Bale last year. Laughable at best is your assumption that the gap between the two is as significant as you are making it out to be. Suarez is a fantastic player, no matter what you think of his attitude/demeanor. I certainly would prefer that he carried himself more like Bale, but scoffing at the notion of Bale=Suarez in terms of talent is just wrong.

To those that think Bale is clearly better than Suarez, what makes you think that? Honestly. I'm talking pure ability on the field, not his attitude or demeanor.

I certainly would prefer that he carried himself more like Bale, but scoffing at the notion of Bale=Suarez in terms of talent is just wrong.
Suarez was absolutely not as good as Bale last year. And I watch a lot of EPL. Bale is just better, dude. He scored just as much - give or take playing on the ******* wing. The most important thing is the "goal from nowhere factor" though. A lot of Bale's goals are him just owning and rocketing one in from 25 yards. Suarez never takes over games either - at least not nearly like Bale can.

Plus, last year was Suarez's only one where he was consistent in front of goal. I need more than one season for me to be convinced that he is an elite finisher.

btw, I love Gareth Bale. I don't want to confuse my backing of Suarez for hating on Bale.

I love both of them as players, but the difference is clear imo.
