I know some people hate saying things like this, but ultimately the points total they had and only losing one game in the end over a 38 game season would have seen them win the league numerous times over the years I believe. Don't think in the grand scheme of things they could have done any more to win it (aside from beating City in that one game they lost which really is the one game that secured it for them in the end).Unfortunately, I'm not too sure how much this will effect them.
They're a team that doesn't need an overhaul, having run City close all season and only losing one game out of 38 in the league.
What with some of Europe's biggest teams looking to have a clear-out, there are probably going to be some bargain loan-deals available, so if they only need one or two players to tweak their squad then that may be doable.
The sum of all fears is if Bale goes there. Some may say they don't need him, but they need something to win the PL. If they had of had an extra quality forward this season, they would have done it, so I don't think it's unreasonable to speculate that they'll be after an attacker this transfer window.
It will also depend on wages as much as anything, tbh, but in terms of spending big on transfer fees they've already done the heavy-lifting in that department.
