I worry about his mental state if he’s seriously considering coming back to the complete shower of shit that is THFC. I suppose there’s those trips to the artic circle in next seasons Europa (if we’re lucky) to look forward too.

Would never fit on my old chap.
There are discrete clinics that do enlargement procedures or maybe the vacuum pump thing ? HTH.

I was thinking the link up between Bale and Ben Davies would work well as they are International team mates -
they could talk Welsh on the pitch and bamboozle opposition players.

Best worry about yourself first!
Sense some issues!

Didn't Perez ultimately scupper his China move during the summer because he wanted a fee for Bale? The Chinese were taking him without RM making any wage contribution so hard to see a scenario where RM would agree to let him join us when they have to subsidise his wages to do it. The Chinese transfer window is open until end of February as well.
I would love to see it happening but think it's outside our reach.

So, is this kid any good? Does anyone have any of the usual YouTube scouting videos of him. Don’t really know much about him

The China thing is in the past. They have a wage cap of 45k a week for foreign players now.

Yeh - and all the foreigners on contracts more than that - when they expire, they are going to be moving back!

I have it sorted! Pay him the same as Kane and let RM subsidise his wages for an 18 month loan! They do this by us paying a loan fee that just happens to equal the amount needed by RM to do this. This neatly solves the problem of DL keeping his wage structure.
If only it was that easy

If you think I'm going to put myself through visiting this thread every day until Feb 1st again, only to be disappointed... Then you're absolutely right.

This is exactly how it will work.

His deal with Adidas ends this year. Maybe Nike can take over that.
His salary owed over 2.5 years = £65 million.
Perspective : Ndombele transfer fee alone topped £60 million and his salary over 5 years is over £50 million.

I’d say 50/50 chance at present. Very complicated. Real will probably want a fee.

I suspect at least one of two does not speak Welsh. Bale can barely speak English.

Ben Davies on the other hand, by all accounts, is one of the more intelligent footballers. He reads books and everything.

Ballbag saying it's not being considered. Although that guy has been so badly wrong in the past it's hard to take him too seriously. Fits with confirmation bias though!
