Real Madrid reportedly set €130m-price-tag for Bale
- Florentino Perez has reportedly set out a minimum €130m asking price for the Welshman.
- Although Madrid allegedly know it's too much for the player, the sum is seen as an adequate number in the realities of the transfer market nowadays.
- However, Bale could be used as a part in another deal which would lower his price significantly.
According to Diario AS, Real Madrid are adamant on selling Gareth Bale and have already decided on the minimal price tag. The rumoured sum is €130m and it could go either higher or lower, depending on the situation. Perez is reported to understand that it's too much for the Welshman, considering his recent form at the Bernabeu but the president is set to salvage as much as possible for the winger.
Although nothing is official yet, it's understood that Los Blancos had enough of Bale and intend to sell him in the summer no matter how good Gareth will perform in the remaining seven matches of the season. Money wasn't discussed during the Monday meeting between the club and Bale's representatives, but it's reported that the player's agent Jonathan Barnett asked for a certain €175m price tag for the Welshman.
Diario AS also report that Bale will be seeking a 19 million euros per year salary to be paid at his new club. It's not clear whether the agent is trying to salvage everything he possibly can from this altogether unpleasant ordeal or he's doing his utter best to make it near impossible for anyone to afford Bale.
The only clubs who can do something as big as that are Manchester United and Tottenham. Both have Christian Eriksen and Paul Pogba who can be used as bargaining chips for Bale. The winger can do one final good thing for Madridistas by participating in the deal.
Do you think 135 million euros is a fair price?
