Tottenham star Gareth Bale has been the talk of the transfer window so far with people debating whether he will stay at White Hart Lane or whether he will move to Spain in order to join Real Madrid and now two celebrities have joined in on the debate.

Ex-footballer and now Match of the Day presenter Gary Linekar took to social networking site Twitter to express his thoughts on the transfer saga and was met with a responce from former Tottenham chairman and now star of The Apprentice, Lord Alan Sugar.

The two celebs tweeted each other back and forward on whether or not Spurs should sell Bale, with one of them saying it's good business and the other saying it wouldn't be wise.

Reports are suggesting that Real Madrid are prepared to offer Tottenham £86million for Bale and Lord Sugar believes that would be great business for the club, however ex-Spurs player Linekar, believes it would send out the wrong message if they were to lose their best player no matter what the price is.

The debate started off with Linekar admitting that he could see Bale joining Madrid this summer, to which Sugar agreed with but also admitted that it would be great business for the north London club.

However, Linekar rubbished the tweet saying it's never good business to lose your best player no matter how much another club is offering.

Sugar then responded by saying no single player is worth £80million and admitted that once a player has his heart set on going, he will go, so the club should take what they can for him.

The debate ended with Linekar agreeing that no-one is worth that much, but then said giant clubs do not sell their best players. 

Linekar also said if they kept hold of Bale they could be a threat next season, he said if they lose him, he couldn't see any threat.
