Why Real Madrid spent so much on Bale
A look at why Real Madrid paid a world-record fee to sign Gareth Bale
Gareth Bale had consistently hit the news the whole summer with Real Madrid not giving up on him at any cost. The Spanish giants paid colossal world-record fee of £85m to finally get their man.
But what would be the real motive for Madrid behind such a galactic cash splash on a single player?
Many of the football experts have raised concern over money involved in mega transfers. It seems madness to most, but for Madrid there is a “Real” motive.
There are plenty of reasons behind such money involved in transfer. Perceptibly no club will be willing to have such a negative cash flow in this kind of economic situations.
Real Madrid’s desperations, Tottenham’s reluctance, Bale’s confusion everything amplified the money involved. But why were Real so desperate? It is apparent that if you are among the world’s best footballers, Real Madrid will be after you. But money has reached a new level.
For Real Madrid the major reason for the Bale signing was the need to find an heir for Cristiano Ronaldo - or maybe they need the player who can ease the pressure of the Portuguese superstar.
Ronaldo has been the key man for Real Madrid for since his arrival - and Los Blancos always relied on him in goalscoring responsibilities, despite having great players alongside him.
On many occasions Ronaldo seemed unhappy and his unhappiness wobbles the whole Bernabeu. But now Bale’s arrival can release such hypertension and Real’s reliance on Ronaldo.
Also, strengthening the squad is the motive behind each transfer window - and to keep pace with Barcelona in La Liga and the Champions League, hefty signings looks inevitable.
So it’s moderately worth to spend such money to keep things easy and safe ahead for a historic club like Real Madrid.
