More rumours around that we are to splash a load of money on buying Gareth Bale from Real Madrid next Summer. Bale has been a very good player but he is 29 next Julu. Perhaps more importantly he has missed 40 of Reals last 60 games through injury. I suspect his best days may be behind him.

Wouldn’t touch him Cinderella. Always preferred griezmann so we can only hope.

Griez and Bale are now quite different players but I think the ship has sailed on Bale and we should be looking to players who can stay fit but be equally effective. He’s too bulky now and his explosive pace means he’s always susceptible to an injury. Personally I think the full back positions, especially left back are much more urgent positions to address to give us more balance and width.

I like Bale but his injury record just gets worse and worse, I don’t think he is worth the risk any more.

I'm a big bale fan and would have loved us to get him last summer, other posters pointed out it was to risky as he's injured a lot and now to be honest they are being proved correct . Very hard to justify big fee and big wages .

If Real believed in Bale then he wouldn't be leaving. Too many injuries have cost him. Back to Spurs would be good business.

I'm also a long term admirer of bales but at his age and likely cost its a huge risk given his injury record.
Bale at his best is awesome but are we likely to see him fit often enough?
A very reluctant no from me.
Sods law tells me he will sign for spurs and play 150 games in a row if we pass him up.

Have never wanted bale and bearing in mind that he is having a bad season at AM I am not convinced that griezmann is worth the money he would cost. Since the board may be unwilling to sanction another huge signing 30 million on ozil might not be the worst shout especially as he has worked with Jose before. I would also agree that sorting out our full back options should be the main priority.

Bale is on a downward slide. Griezman looks Barcelona bound. I still say Sanchez would do great at UTD - Jose wanted Willian in the summer (according to willian himself) Sanchez is a better player, works as hard if not harder than willian too. Seems to be destined for City though.

If anybody says Bale, I’d rather bring back CR7 since he is more fit than Bale. Having said that, I’d rather we not waste our money getting these 2 “on downhill” players. They’re both getting on with age and although they have experience, Zlatan is enough. We should be looking to “invest” in younger and good potential players. With the same money I’m sure we can buy a few defenders and wingers rather than spend unwisely on Bale and CR7.
