Premier League stars: Are they worth the money?

If speculation and rumours are to be believed then Gareth Bale, Wayne Rooney and Luis Suarez are going to be plying their trade at different clubs in the near future. 

But who will be the best signing in your opinion? 

There can be no doubt that these players have certain qualities that you would want to see in any player and they all possess that world-class ingredient but it appears that Gareth Bale is the most coveted signing if we are to judge by the potential transfer fees available. 

Real Madrid seem happy to spend the best part of £100m on Bale to make him the most expensive player in football history. Yet for the same money you could have two Luis Suarez's and three Wayne Rooney's. 

Is that realistic? 

Bale has been excellent over the last two seasons and at times has carried his Tottenham side. He has produced great performances in the Premier League and Champions League and is still very young, allowing for even more potential for development. 

Unfortunately he doesn’t have the distractions of playing International tournaments with Wales so this may well make him a very attractive proposition for club managers. 

Suarez is a very exciting individual and Liverpool are looking to build their side around both him and Steven Gerrard but he also attracts criticism and the wrong type of media attention for his antics. 

There is no doubting his talent and Arsenal are testing the water by their offer of £40m and £1 to trigger a clause in his contract so his fee could rise if a transfer is made possible. Suarez would be a great addition to most clubs if they can put up with his non-footballing problems. 

What can you say about Wayne Rooney? He has been a very consistent performer for Manchester United over the last decade but there is no doubt he wants to leave the club.

Most careers take a downward turn after leaving Old Trafford, so perhaps Rooney should think twice before moving on. The £30m bid from Chelsea perhaps reflects the fact that Rooney is desperate to leave Old Trafford and they feel that they can get him for a reduced fee. 

Given the history of the player and his achievements he must surely be worth more. 

Liverpool and Brendan Rogers were perfectly right when they suggested that if Gareth Bale is worth £100m then so is Luis Suarez - their statistics last season were very similar and arguably Suarez had the edge. 

Bearing in mind Rooney's stature in the Premier League surely his fee should rise considerable if he was to leave. 

In terms of potential Bale and Suarez have the edge but Rooney must surely be a great signing for any club in the world.

One thing is for sure, there is still lots of speculation surrounding big summer signings but once one of these players moves on it will spark a mad surge by all the major clubs in Europe who will want to compete for the best players. 

This may mean further inflation in the current potential transfer fees. We are definitely set for a very exciting month in August.
