Raul: Bale is great, but…

Raul Gonzalez has acknowledged Gareth Bale’s potential to bring something to Real Madrid, but commented that his price is an ‘overestimate’.

Madrid have been linked with a move for the Welshman this summer, but with Tottenham said to be pushing for a world record fee upwards of €100m.

“Bale is a great player and could provide a great contribution to Madrid, but his price is very high,” commented Raul to Al-Sadd’s official website.

“Tottenham overestimate Bale’s price.

“Madrid’s work this summer? The board is professional and will work to get the best things for the good of the team.”

Raul was talking ahead of taking his Al-Sadd outfit out to the capital for a reunion with his former club this Thursday. The veteran’s current side are the opposition for the annual Trofeo Bernabeu match.

“Our stay in Madrid will be fantastic. I hope my teammates can benefit from this experience and from the game.

“I know that all the tickets for the game have been sold.

“I am grateful to the Madrid fans and hope that it is a good game and that all participants watching will enjoy it, especially as I’ll be playing a half with Al-Sadd and another with Madrid.”
