Sky Sport reports the reason Spurs stalling the sell of Bale because they believe after Bale joins Madrid, Madrid will sell player(s) to Arsenal. Spurs play Arsenal this Sunday and they would like to play against Arsenal depleted squad.

Hey Levy.....FUG YOU!  I love how AVB takes Bale to task in his press conference stating how his behavior is wrong or whatever, but it's alright to hold Bale hostage when you've already said you're moving him to Real because you're worried about what Arsenal may or may not do.  Fuging amateur hour here....

I think Spurs are smart. Marca reported that Madrid received £30m offer from Arsenal for Di Maria and will accept it as soon as Bale completes his transfer. Kaka is another player who could join if he wishes to redo his contract and it also depends on Bale. Ozil is another target Arsenal can go after. Levy is smart.

Bale deal to be announced today more than likely. Sounds like final number is 77 million pounds. I can live with that...

Also the mirror reporting a La Liga team made a 40 million pound offer for Saurez, but I really doubt their accuracy on their report...

Ozil isn't going anywhere. He said he was happy in Spain and had no intentions of leaving for United or anywhere else just yesterday. Di Maria is most likely, though I hope they can find a sucker to take Kaka.

If Ozil is benched, he will leave. World Cup is next year, if he sits on the bench he won't make the international squad.

Spurs are on a shopping spree today. Erikson from Ajax is a latest signing and reports that Spurs are not done yet. I think it's more than £77m Madrid will pay for Bale or Spurs going way over their budget. Spurs already spent £120m and they not done yet.

We've also agreed to terms with Lamela from Roma and Chiriches from Steaua Bucharest. Total cost is expected to be 25m pounds or so with incentives bringing it to 30m for the former and around 7m for the latter.

 

Edit: Erikson deal is approximately 11.5m and finalized

Now now, tempter.....

 

 

I agree with Arsen yet again.. it's just smart footballing and good business to hold off reinforcements for your opposition right before you play them. It sets the tone for the season, in a "we already beat you once, we can do it again" mentality, provided we win. Of course, the antithesis to that is if they lose, then that's even worse for morale, as we lost to the depleted by injury team, but I'm not overly worried at the moment.

I doubt the turn around for a Di Maria deal is quick enough that he would play on Sunday, but whatever. Still ridiculous that they may fine Bale, but they've got no problem holding him hostage...

The thing is though, he's not hostage. He's a player still under contract that is expected to keep his obligations, including showing for training. Nothing more, nothing less. If he'd shown up for practice, it might have been a little awkward for everyone involved, but things haven't been finalized. If I get a promotion to a different department at work, I don't expect to go earlier than when my employer tells me to go. Or better, if I sign a contract for a consulting assignment, should I expect to be able to just skip the last few days of it simply because a bigger contract comes along?

Cannot wait for the title defense to get underway.  I like the draw but not a fan of the way the team is playing.  Still, I see 13+ points in the group stage.

I think this is the end of Manure. One of the reasons Fergie took off. The club is over half a billion dollars in debt.
