Yes - bizarre, you would think winning trophies/medals in competitive football (still on megabucks) would be more attractive than even more megabucks and playing in the professional equivalent of the Dave the Builder's Sunday League experienceI am at a loss to see how he can go to China rather than Bayern, or Spurs.
Adding to his multi millions is clearly far more important than only making a few£10 millions and playing competitive football at the highest level.
Yes but that's my confusion.It’s all for the money
Apparently, Real Madrid would have had to let him go on a free transfer as the Chinese club weren't willing to pay a fee due to his wages etc.
But my point is you dont need £120m.If he went to Spurs he'd probably be on something like £200k a week or £30m over a 3 year year deal. In China he's looking at £1m a week! That's £150m over 3 years. Now I'm sure he's far from skint but an extra £120m can't be sniffed at!
But my point is you dont need £120m.
Once you get to £40m+ surely you have enough money for life?
So you are suggesting that football and winning things is irrelevant? It is only a matter of building £100m's?
I seriously dont get the fact that football is irrelevant and money is more is more important than winning decent titles even though you have more money than you will ever need.
Fair point.Only Bale knows whether he has enough money. £120million would set up a lot of generations of his family. He might want to build a golf course, he might want to invest it into a business when he retires. Only he knows what he has planned for the future.
I don't think it is up to others to decide if someone has enough money. For the majority of us if we had £2-3million to our name we would say we had enough money, yet when people assume Tiger only has a few million to his name people say he doesn'tt have a pot to P**s in! It is all relevant depending on what you want to do with your money. No one is saying Thoir is a greedy business man yet he has billions in the bank!
But my frustration I guess us that unbelievably wealthy footballers choose to go to a poor league as opposed to earning huge money playing competitive football.
You are right that it is his choice (actually it isnt as Real have pulled the plug on the deal). As a football supporter I am a little bewildered...
