    Real are reportedly prepared to pay half of his wages, and are happy to let him go with on loan with an option to buy for €20 million. His wages for the rest of the season would be about £12 million, which is expensive for a years loan, but if they think he can make an impact they may be prepared to pay it.

    I hope it can work out, I'd much rather him go back to Spurs then join United.

    12 mil for a fit bale for one season is a bargain.

    its the equivalent of paying 230k per week to a player.

    kane is on 200k right now, so having bale and kane in your team to try get into cl seems an alright bargain for spurs

    Romano will definitely know better what the agent wants put out that's for sure. All DiMarzio's lads sources are agents.

    Think a decent season back out of Bale is workable, but beyond that then think you'd probably see him become pretty ineffectual.

    So to consider using a player still far off his prime as a makeweight is questionable at best.

    I don’t doubt these guys get info from the right people. But it’s no guarantee that info is always the truth.

    Yep. Also very useful for agents to be able to place stories with people seen as 'reliable' or to help shape a narrative.

    Our second choice left back is actually Dennis Cirkin, who probably should try to get a loan deal.
    Rose haven't got a squad number and been left out of the Premier League squad, finished.
    While Sessegnon hardly has a left back future, maybe if Mourinho plan three back line up with wing backs. In a flat back four, Bale would probably be more of a game time threat to Sessegnon than Reguilón.

    Funny how when we signed Rodriguez people we’re saying he’s 29, he hasn’t done anything in a few seasons, he’s on a big wage, but yet people think Bale is a good buy... wow.

    Certain people who team play in red....

    As for Bale imo it’s a signing to ease the pressure on Levy. Bale has hardly played over the last few years. Will it be Wales,Golf,Spurs after a few months.

    Bale’s a far more accomplished player and has excelled in the PL tbf.

    I’ve not made any comments on the James deal btw.

    A loan deal, with half of his wages paid by Real, back to a club he knows so well? Well yeah, decent deal, probably

    As for James, I think the only things being said were to calm the likes of yourself down, who was acting like they'd just signed Messi ;)

    But we didn’t pay anything for James. He was free, and took a huge wage cut.

    Arsenal have done very well to get that much for a keeper who's made 20 top flight appearances in 9 years.

    ...but...James wasn’t anywhere near as good as Bale at Madrid.

    All their differences a side Bale has come up tops in some big games. James never had that sorta impact. In fact to an extent James is still living off the World Cup on 2014. I don’t remember him doing anything for Madrid.

    That’s not to say I don’t think James is a good signing because I genuinely do...but...I also think Spurs signing Bale would be a cracking signing too.

    Free?

    Most places seem to be reporting a fee of around £20m for James.

    Nope, he was free. Real have a sell on percentage in the deal.

    Transfermarkt does show it as a free transfer. Probably a decent signing and agent fee though, but still a very good deal.
