The transfer of Gareth Bale to the Santiago Bernabeu has gone through and I believe Spurs will benefit from this more than Real Madrid.
There has been lots of speculation on whether it will or won’t happen, but now that it has, Tottenham will benefit far more than Madrid, with the Welshman going to Madrid for £85.6 million, breaking the world record transfer fee.
Firstly, I don’t think Bale is worth the amount Madrid have paid, but more importantly, Tottenham can make three, four or even five signings of high quality with the money produced.
Rumours about Tottenham making a move for Hulk have already been mentioned. And with a few extra signings, Tottenham have the capacity to be one of the biggest clubs in the world.
They could challenge for Champions League titles, never mind Premier League titles. This is because they are in a fantastic position to attract players, with an up-and-coming manager and a dedicated chairman. Not to mention an already world-class team, that could next season challenge for the title.
And they’ve shown their ambition this summer, with signings of Brazil’s Paulinho for £17 million, Roberto Soldado for £26 million and a club record signing of Erik Lamela for £30 million.
One person who has been fantastic for Spurs this transfer window is chairman Daniel Levy, who negotiated perfectly for Bale, and has not stalled on signings of their own.
Madrid have over paid for Bale, but Levy’s forced their hand, and has built a brighter, stronger future for Spurs.
