Gareth Bale Sold to Real Madrid for £86 Million
Tottenham Hotspurs has finally sold Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a record braking £86 million and astoundingly just minutes after the announcement EA Sports released a teaser video for the forthcoming FIFA 14 game showing Bale in a in a Real Madrid shirt.
The video begins with the line ‘It Just Got Real’ before players Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of the team ahead of a game. Then Bale appears next to Ronaldo and holds his hands out before applauding his new team.
The deal has made Bale the most expensive footballer ever and he joins players such as Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham on the list of those who have secured high-profile transfers to the Spanish team.
After the sale was announced Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy said, “Gareth was a player we had absolutely no intention of selling as we look to build for the future … Such has been the attention from Real Madrid and so great is Gareth’s desire to join them, that we have taken the view that the player will not be sufficiently committed to our campaign in the current season.”
