This transfer saga has been going on all summer long, which means that it has to end right about now — Gareth Bale desires to leave the Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur to join the La Liga powerhouse Real Madrid.
He wants to leave, and he is refusing to play games or even attend training with the Spurs, so why keep him? Tottenham have started out nicely in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory, then a 5-0 thrashing away from home in Europe thanks to new signing Roberto Soldado. Besides him, the team has brought in new reinforcements, with one of them being Brazilian midfield sensation Paulinho.
Bale is still better than any one player on the team, but they can still be successful without him.
Real Madrid now rely solely on Cristiano Ronaldo to lead this team to new heights. With Barcelona adding Neymar to the picture, defeating or outplaying that team will be extremely difficult for the capital club with the players at hand. If they add Bale, his assistance and presence on the team can take off the pressure denting CR7’s shoulders to bring success and to match Barca’s monster signing.
Bale is rumored to be worth €93 million and if Madrid sign him, that will make him the most expensive player in history as Ronaldo was even cheaper than that. Regardless of whether people think he is worth that much or not, he will be a truly worthwhile asset to the club where stars arrive to play and win big.
This is the best place for him to be and if this move does go through, he and Ronaldo will make one another even better than they are now.
