Would be mental to sign him he’d cost £100m he’s on a stupid contract as well and his injuries mean his best years will be behind him. At his best he was electric so quick and strong but it’s clear his body can’t handle the workload year on year.
Madrid clearly want rid of him but unless you’re prepared to take a massive financial gamble he’s just not worth it in my opinion.
Paco Gonzalez: "Real Madrid is going to sell Bale this summer."
Probably would be good for Bale, it’s gone very wrong for him at Madrid what with the injuries and all.
Would you guys take him at United?
Obviously his injury woes would put me off, however he’s still a good age and is in his prime. If he was to get his injury problems out of the way then he would be a fine signing for someone. Madrid are not gonna let him go on the cheap and his wages are mahoosive though.
Tbf he’s exactly what we need. Another player that loves playing LWF
Doesn’t he play on the right? He is what we need we need a left footed attacker BUT he’s going to be stupidly expensive in transfer fee and wages plus his injury problems seem to be getting worse every season.
In theory he’s the perfect player for us but I think he’d be to big a gamble right now, I also think he’s a player who’s peaked we need players just hitting their prime not guys who are maybe about to decline. We’ve took that gamble with Sanchez.
The time to buy Bale was 2011 when he started to blow up at Spurs Utd didn’t roll the dice and force the move for him but we missed out just like we did on Madrid and now it’s to late.
Even as a biased Welshman, I wouldn't take him personally. And can't see us looking at attackers this summer, apart from Ibrahimovic, none leaving and we're well stacked in attack, just need to get them playing better and that's down to Mourinho mostly but improving what's behind them will also help.
If Real Madrid want Kane, expect some business. Alternatively, Salah for Bale at Liverpool?
He does play down the right for Madrid but he isn’t a right winger by any means. He only plays there because Ronaldo refuses to move he’s at his best down the left and if you’re signing a player for that sort of money play him where he’s at his best
I think we need a goalscoring right flank player whichever foot he kicks with.
His best season at Spurs he was on the right, he's been excellant playing on the right for Madrid, pretty sure he played on the right for Wales before going central. When he burst on the scene at Spurs he was an old skool left winger but he very quickly swapped sides and became the modern style inverted winger who wants to come inside and shoot rather than go outside and cross.
He'd be perfect for our right side if he wasn't so injury prone but then if he wasn't so injury prone Madrid wouldn't be desperate to move him on.
I never ever saw Bale on the right for Spurs. Ever.
He played from the left and drifted central in a free role. Aaron Lennon played down the right the entire season. So much so that when he signed for Madrid people expected them to move Ronaldo central play Bale from the left and Di Maria from the right.
His best game in a Madrid shirt that first season was probably the Cup final where Ronaldo didn't play and he played down the left. That's when the fans finally took to him and believed in him.
Bale doesn't like playing from the right. I remember reading that somewhere. I don't recall him playing right for Spurs though.
