      Hes going to have to take a dramatic cut on that if he wants a move back to England. Couldnt even see Utd or City paying that

      Us and Spurs 100% no chance

      Bale a possibility I’m hearing, thoughts ppl ?

      Considering he earns more than our entire front 3 put together & wouldn't get into the team ahead of any of them, I'd say it's unlikely

      The only way Spurs or us could do it would be to take him on loan and pay a portion of his weekly wage. I don't see it as likely for us, but would Spurs be willing to pay more than £200k per week, would Real Madrid be ok with that, paying 2/3rds of the wage of someone not playing for them?

      Absolutely not, why would Real entertain paying getting on half a million a week for a player at another club

      No chance. Hed have to tear up his contract and take a far less paid gig which I very much doubt hed do

      Well Madrid might have to do it if they were absolutely fu**ed for money, but I doubt they are, they can always get bailed out by the Spanish banks who themselves get bailed out by the EU, but that's another topic ;-)

      How would it benefit Madrid to still pay him 400-500k a week?

      If he simply left it would free up a hefty contract but not still paying that amount

      What I was reading last night (dunno how much truth there is to it), is that Spurs were looking on taking Bale on loan and paying half his wage (300k p/w) while sending Deli Ali on loan in the other direction. With Madrid bizarrely paying Ali's full wage for the duration of the loan

      Seems a pretty dreadful deal for both sides if I'm honest

      Think he's more likely to win the British Open than to play football this season.

      And more likely to do so having beaten Seve and Arnie in a play-off than to play for Liverpool......

      If he’s available for about what £120:150 a week I’d have ,he is still a hell of a player as we know only to well.

      ah you're assuming someone else would take him on for the full £600k, not a chance, certainly not in this market, so if they could at least save £200k per week off the wage bill for someone they don;t want to play then they might go for it.

      He's probably going to end up at Spurs with RM paying most of his wages. RM must be aching to make him go one way or another and will end up paying his wages just to not have him around anymore. Paying him to do nothing is something but the constant bad PR that comes with it is probably the straw that broke the camel's back in terms of trying to get a good fee and not pay his wages.

      What type of economics is that?

      Spend 20m a year to save 10m

      They'd be better off agreeing a pay off of his deal, at a far more reduced number than the above and let him ho on a free.
      They could give him a 5-10m pay off which he would I'm sure more likely take

      Or sell him to China and dont lose anything

      Doubt he'd shake on anything close to that, if he's on 600k a week then he's earning over 30 million a year. His contract expires in 2022 so his planned earnings would be about £65 million from Real Madrid over the next two seasons. Say if he shakes on 7.5M & signs a contract somewhere for 300k p/w then he'd still be losing out on more than £20M over the next 2 years

      He's already shown he's happy sitting in the stands collecting his paycheck. Don't think that will change now. If football was really important to him, he'd have moved on awhile ago in my opinion.

      Yeah, that's it. He's won 4 European Cups so it's not like he needs to move somewhere to prove a point

      This one goes against my debate with Heimy about Thiago as Bale does seem desperately unhappy at Madrid now

      If he shook on a tax free pay off (or they pay the tax but dont really) then that 7.5m is worth in excess of 15m in reality

      Then he would be free to sign a new deal at whatever and more than likely including a signing on bonus


      Yes he would lose a few quid but not as much as we would think and like I say he seems desperately unhappy where he is

      oh God, I cannot be bothered to get into another lengthy debate with you, I really don't have the energy, but yes it makes sense to lose £10m instead of £20m and the issue will selling Bale is that, as you told me before, no player would ever take a pay cut, and that's not because they are greedy ;-)

      Maybe a backup center back, but I think for this season we're going with what we have, which is why I don't think Brewster is going anywhere elither (DEFINITELY NOT on a transfer).

      Just reading through on Twitter about Brewster.

      Is this serious about him being sold?

      If it is, it is a total swerve by the club re their assessment of and intentions for Rhian.
