Why is it that Tottenham Hotspurs' Gareth Bale is in such high demand from two of the world's biggest clubs, Real Madrid and Manchester United?
It is easy to understand why Bale is the number one priority for these two clubs. He has speed, power, technique, creative ability, and a shot that thunders with accuracy. These are qualities that define Bale, and of late, Spurs.
But Bale has apparently stated his commitment to the North London club. That commitment has been tested with a massive reported £85m bid from Madrid, which will flatter the Welsh midfield sensation as well as Spurs.
The next question is; what will be the next move in this new transfer saga that has taken the polish off the Luis Suarez story?
If Spurs do cash in it will make them rich enough to buy anyone. But can Bale be replaced?Madrid with Bale will be near unstoppable. A left-right partnership with Cristiano Ronaldo sounds almost too incredulous to be true.
With the pace and power that can be measured in horse-power, if Madrid do land Bale, they will surely be contenders for everything they compete in next season and beyond.
But what if it does go through and the giants flop? Looking at the Kaka-Ronaldo hype will tell you enough. This though seems different. One can see no better partnership in world football then Bale and Ronaldo, even surpassing a Messi-Ronaldo option. The two are so alike, physically and to an extent, technically.
With not long to go before the season kicks off, fans from both camps will be getting ready for anything. Is Bale a huge loss to Spurs, or a massive signing for Madrid or United?
