Some Spanish correspondent (Peter Jenson?) on TalkSport right now.........
Latest from Spain is that the bale move is imminent and that Bale may join them oon their pre-season tour of LA.
Levy has flown from LA to London today for talks with Bale.

Spanish seem to think this is when rather than if now.
The journo should be congratulated for reading the front page of Marca and AS today. That's all.

Right, so that we're clear and can proceed without me relapsing into a bout of manic depression caused by assorted flangeshufflers constantly reporting bollocks, here is AGAIN, how we roll.

This thread is NOT for info gleaned from people's facebook pages.

This thread is NOT for info trawled off of Twitter. No matter what the source.

This thread is for discussing ITK. That's information posted by those who we recognise as 'In The Know', both here on SC and whored from other sites such as COYS, FTL, SO etc etc

You all know this. So why all of a sudden are we getting this bollocks? Again. And if you think this rant is uncalled for, remember that it comes from a desire NOT to ban people. But if it comes to it.........

Morning ladies.

Do we have a striker yet? No? Bollocks. Still believe the ITK that he is all but done, call me optimistic but better glass half full than half empty!

The Bale talk disturbs me. I know we haven't had any ITK on him leaving, so I'll leave it there.

Day off work for me today (and tomorrow) so i'll be stalking this page ALL day! My battery on my phone is already under half! I can feel a Soldado signing in my waters, it's gonna be announced today at 2pm...

:)

Normally I 100% agree with you A&C but all these Bale talks is setting peoples emotions on fire on a scale I have never seen before. We have all witnessed great players leave the Lane and we have all gotten over it on our path to glory. But I have to say (and I feel somewhat the same) that there is something about Bale.

No players are bigger then the club obviously but with Bale we truly have a superstar ala Ronaldo and Messi - for alot of the supporters its the first time this has happened and to see him go would be....heartbreaking.

Anyways as I started this post I do agree with you regardless.

Really hope Bale's heads not been turned.

Edit: Journo also states that Soldada should be completed later this week and many Madrid fans are not too happy with the thought of Bale signing - he plays in same poistion as Ronaldo and the don't see the sense
And if you listened just after Graham Roberts said he's around the club alot these days (I can vouch for that as my boy is at the academy) and that Levy is saying that Bale is going NOWHERE!! So I know who is believe, he won't go, IMO.

1) Surely the RM president would fly to London, not Levy to Madrid
2) Easyjet is offering £29 each way to Madrid, so could have some legs.

If Bale move was imminent we'd have a bucket load of ITK so enough said.
I'm still happy that Hertyid on Soldado is the latest ITK we have.

I think the Bale transfer saga will take a similar course to the Modric transfer saga. Levy will want to prise one more year out of him (in which time he'll be hoping we finish top 4 or higher and convince him to stay), but he'll know that next Summer it'll be time to sell.

To be honest I'd be fine with that approach. I think with one more year of Bale and a striker or two then we could really push the teams at the top and that may convince Bale to stay. If he doesn't then we sell him for 80m+ next year.

I don't see why we can't just calmly say to them: Ok, we'll deal with you. But we want ALL the money upfront as with the Ronaldo deal. Oh, what's that? You're skint? Bugger off then!

Today is Soldado day. I've decided. I can take no more waiting.:notworthy:
