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.
yeah cause I enjoy footy and thus talent pooled together can be nice to watch.

I only get angry if said club tapped up the player. otherwise, if the smaller club accepts, then it's they're choice and they can do as they think best for their club, whether it's right or wrong

zizou came out in an interview and said bale is a great player and he admired him the most out of all the players in europe and that he'd love him at madrid but bale has to hand in a transfer request to make it happen.


you're telling me that's not tapping up???


oh and chelscum can eat my fucking shit. more despicable than madrid. at least madrid makes their own money and isn't pumped in cash by abramo-money-mo-bitches

I wish he didn't say that cuz I don't really want Bale at Real. Is he breaking a law saying that - nope.

Your disdain for Chelsea and to a lesser degree Real is pretty bad.

yeah actually FIFA has rules towards tapping players up. it IS illegal. madrid and barca get away with it cause they're the giants and the "pinnacles" of football. gross really.

meh, they're my two most hated clubs. I can't control myself around them

players/managers always say good things about other players. Hazard, Mourinho and others were saying that Rooney and Suarez would be good additions to the club but that doesn't mean they are going to sign with Chelsea

Chelsea makes almost double the revenue Spuds generates. The club can make its own money.

see the bolded part. that's the tapping up.

yeah chelscum makes double after a decade of investment from abram's pocket. chelsea also for the most part has investments from abram to foot the stupendous wage and transfer costs

Big teams have advantages that small teams don't. Also - players have player power. I've never heard someone say tapping up so much in my life jeez.

Why - is it because one has money and is necessary cuz without it the old guard of established teams would continue to rule. and the reason you hate Real is it because it is currently the most valuable sports franchise in the world, always competes for trophies and has one of the best youth setups in the world (don't use as it should be used but doesn't take away from the talent that comes out).

A few things which I've already told you. First - not a necessary signing. Second - just continuing to add talent doesn't equate to a better team - it equates to more signings who are frustrated on the bench and whose value gets diminished. Real isn't short of talent. Already have arguably the best wing combo in the world and arguably the best CAM in the world. Chemistry is what has brought this Real squad back since Mou came. Installing certain players has been key to the teams' improved display in Europe. Wasting a lot of money isn't necessary. Adding another starter or supersub would also increase the possibility of turning a nice generation of Spanish talent with players like Jese and Morata into the new Mata and Soldado/Negredo, which would be a shame (not excelling or playing at Real and leaving and lighting it up elsewhere). Now, all that being said - I wouldn't really be against Bale coming to Real if one of either DiMaria or CR7 (or both) would be sold.

agreed. unnecessary use of money. you can buy half of spain's u21 starting XI for the same price

Wonder how long Óliver Torres stays in Madrid...
Hulk going to AS Monaco Porto soon....

Negredo to City is near official as Sevilla has announced on their website his farewell. Raul Albiol is in Naples for his medical and will be a Napoli player soon.

Arrgh yet another example of unnecessary signings. Isco at least you could make the argument that he could be a supersub or displace DiMaria in the starting XI, not to mention his play in UCL for Malaga and that he's called the new Iniesta by many people. Illarra however was not really necessary. Especially that fee. Khedira and Ozil were had for 15 million each, for example.

Um, good for Hulk I guess. I still can't believe Porto turned down like 89 million euros for Hulk from Anzhi. He was willing to go there too.

De Laurentis said on twitter that the €64M have to be added to the €60M he would have provided anyway. So 120M? lol

They're getting a lot of interesting players, but I hope for them (and for our Serie A's good in general) that Benitez will put up a good starting lineup: it would be funny if this will turn out as anyone of the past Genoa's trades (lot of valuable player in theory, a sticker collection in reality)

I think they're making some good moves. They might get Higuain too. They could get Higuain for 30 million euros which will be great considering what they got for Cavani.
