    Bale was going to be sold that summer. Everyone knew that Madrid were in for him. Not sure which Ronaldo transfer you are talking about but the united to Madrid one was decided the summer before. Neymars people had a deal months prior with PSG and waited so he could collect a bonus. It’s not about when the deal is closed. Sancho could happen at the end of the window but it’s Been worked on for months.

    who is buying mbappe right now and has the finances to put together a deal that’s probably close to 500 million all in? None of those are remotely similar situations.

    Getting big money to live in Paris, dominate a second tier league, and only have to really switch on for a few European matches a year sounds delightful to me

    Thats not at all what you said and the article clearly says is for ‘21 so this is all moot but how exactly do you think high profile transfers work? Mbappe has been on Real’s radar for the better part of a decade. Do you think they’d just make a phone call or two totally out of the blue as the domestic seasons are beginning and have a deal hammered out in a couple of days?

    Most people think mbappe leaves for Real Madrid in 2021 so I guess I didn’t think that would be news. This is the 2020 transfer thread so I thought you were saying in the next 2 weeks. The times is behind a firewall so I didn’t click.

    Really though I’m not sure. I just remember them at some point putting in some crazy taxes of up to 75%.

    Though reading up quickly here after work I see that from 50-75% would be paid by clubs and players would pay 49% if that is still in place

    Unsurprising. Too late in the window to pull off a move like that

    Interesting. With Davies and sessegnon it doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense. Maybe this is Real Madrid/agent floating this to get Manchester United to cave in their negotiations?

    Dele would be a loan with Madrid covering all of his wages and half of Bale’s.

    Because they’re that desperate to get Bale out and he wants to return to Spurs I guess? This is what Matt Law is reporting fwiw, and he’s usually not one to stir shit.

    I think Zidane would prefer to shoot Gareth into the sun. But I don't think Real view that as a viable option. However, sending him to Spurs to watch him flounder during Bulgarian European Nights is acceptable.

    About that...they're eager to get rid of him to get his salary off the books. That's the entire goal, even if it means getting next to nothing in a sale. That Alli swap accomplishes none of that.

    Happy the clauses were accepted. Didn’t want to completely lose him like Achraf.

    Works well for us too, giving Sessegnon and Cirkin more time to develop, and hopefully be loaned out in Sessegnon’s case.

    Now just show a goddamn Gareth Bale chipping golf balls to say "Welcome to Tottenham" before we get crushed by libido podolski tomorrow.

    I was kinda hoping Tomori would get an EPL loan with you guys, but it sounds like he's being leveraged into the Mendy deal.
