Spurs fans, you might have been infuriated by the Spanish media’s coverage of the Gareth Bale transfer rumours but you have to at least doff your hat to this latest effort.
AS have splashed a reader survey in which Real Madrid supporters were asked to set a suitable fee for Bale.
Accompanied by the headline “The fans put a price on Bale”, came the news that 54 per cent of the 154,000 people who voted value Bale at between €60m and €70m.
Ah, a front-page story based in a world in which transfer fees are set by the buying team’s supporters. We can all learn something from that.
Daniel Levy might have different ideas. But he will be pleased to know that 7 per cent of Real fans reckon Bale’s worth more than €110m.
