Legendary Real Madrid striker Raul has indicated that he believes his former club is being asked to pay over the odds for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.
The 24-year-old is widely expected to move to the Bernabeu this summer, but Raul has expressed his concern about the transfer fees being quotes.
He told the official website of his current club, Qatari side Al Sadd: “Bale is a wonderful player. I understand the Real Madrid board is working hard to assemble the best team possible. But the price is too high.
“Tottenham overestimates the price of Bale.”
The Spanish giants seem set to spend in the region of £100m – probably including players in part-exchange – on signing the Welsh star.
