Yeah I AM NOT BIDDING OR TAPPING ANY ONE UP. Ok I understand that but I'm just saying that in the past whenever you've mentioned a big team and an offer that came in to a smaller team that was even slightly smaller and they accepted (or not) you got angry and went on rants saying that evaluations must be met. But if Spurs do the exact same thing you think it's such a wise business decision. Also, even though you don't want Bale to go you've mentioned the lineup you'd predict Real would had if they had him and seemed kind of excited at that lineup. Lastly, this "tapping up" it happens - it's soccer/football/futbol. People can publicly admire players in the media. Look at what Barca did with Arsenal - that good sir, is tapping up and a phenomenally better example than the one you always complain of. Real were willing to offer 60-80 million euros for Cesc and Barca got him for peanuts. So, don't get so outraged if Real were to get Bale some day for 70 to eighty something million euros. Arsenal didn't get what they could of but it's called player power - player has to want to go to a team, other team has interest and there has to be a transfer fee. Or Arsenal could've not sold him and they'd have an unhappy player who might not want to play and have his value decrease.
