re: Real Madrid reportedly bid $130M for Gareth Bale (Posted on 7/30/13 at 7:28 pm to itawambadog)
People need to realize that money is not an object for Real Madrid. The club is owned by the supporters. Money in the bank should be spent, and there is nothing better for them to spend it on than players. Bale is about to become a brand. The overwhelming majority of their fan base want Perez to get him. Madrid will make a sizable portion of the transfer fee back within the first season on marketing alone.
