Bale is now a Real Madrid asset

Eclipsing all the records ever made in the history of soccer, especially that of Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid revised its own feet and sign up Spurs star Gareth Bale at a record breaking £300,000 per week fees. This is perhaps the maximum amount any club has ever paid for any player in soccer which also put a final dot on all the speculations that Real may not be interested in the Wales for an unprecedented figure. The deal is for a six year tenure while the final amount as reported by the La Liga club is £85.3m. Though the deal is almost final but a formal medical test is pending and after that Spanish league runner up will formally announce his entry to their A-team – probably on Monday at 12:00 BST at Bernabeu. Bale enjoyed his six long years playing with League club where he joined back in 2007 at £10m, and now, he is worth almost eight times of that figure giving a huge profit to his formal club. About his long and fruitful spell at the White Hart Lane, he said, “I have had six very happy years at Tottenham but it’s the right time to say goodbye. We’ve had some special times together and I’ve loved every minute of it.

“I am not sure there is ever a good time to leave a club where I felt settled and was playing the best football of my career to date. I know many players talk of their desire to join the club of their boyhood dreams, but I can honestly say, this is my dream come true. Tottenham will always be in my heart and I’m sure this season will be a successful one for them. I am now looking forward to the next exciting chapter in my life, playing football for Real Madrid.”

On the other side, Villas-Boas, who until been saying they don’t want to retire their star midfielder, is now happy with a prosperous move by the 24-year-old, he commended his passage for a better future and said, “Bale is a wonderful player. He is going to join Real Madrid so we wish him all the best. He left us with some great memories from last season. I am well aware I would not be at the level I am today were it not for firstly Southampton and then Spurs standing by me during some of the tougher times and affording me the environment and support they have.

“I would like to thank everyone at the club; the chairman, board, staff, coaches and players, and, most of all, the fantastic fans who I hope will understand this amazing career opportunity.”

So, cherish a welcoming change in coming La Liga matches where we’ll see how new star entrants perform in front of the world.
