When a player moves clubs, he tends to call on a fellow player who he knows is already playing for his would-be employers. The wages on offer usually hold the casting vote but this primitive due diligence is important for other reasons. The answers to the first two questions can solicit a more detailed response but the answer to the last question is always, always, one of two possible words.
And that is a pretty long-winded way of wondering out loud if Gareth Bale made a phone call to a player, such as Luka Modric, before he signed for Real Madrid. The answer is that he probably didn’t because the transfer fee was too high, the wages were too big, the manager was one of the best in the world, the city is everything a European city should be and the Real Madrid fans are shit. They have achieved a new-found resilience through the Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti, a man known for extracting the best out of exceptional attacking talent while, at the same time, commanding a respect that allows the players to buy into a staunch Italian footballing principle, which states that defending is an art form within which goalscoring is a subculture. There is a common misconception among fans that winning teams need to be broken up so that they don’t go stale.
Moreover, they demand that those trophies be delivered in the style of a swashbuckling knight expertly fending off an oncoming army of thousands of mortals from across the border while, at the same time, bringing to a climax the fairest maiden the land has to offer. When I heard that Bale would leave Spurs, I knew that Manchester United were desperate to sign him. Politically, it is very difficult to sell the departure of a big-name signing to the media if a decision is taken to transfer a top player after such a short period of time.
Such a sale can also, at times, imply that the player didn’t get on or agree with the ethos of the manager and that maybe that manager isn’t able to handle big players or is losing it. It can put off other players from signing for the club because they are unsure as to why a big signing hasn’t worked when it really should have. Even Spurs would get roped in, with Madrid reducing their own exposure to finger-pointing by accusing chairman Daniel Levy of overcharging for a player who couldn’t deliver.
It is a major political headache for everybody concerned and it is my view that, after only two years, everybody involved has a vested interest in telling Bale that he is going nowhere.

Apart from a few catcalls and whistles, nothing coming out of Madrid gives me any reason to think that the club would seriously consider selling Bale. Yes, Bale could be performing better than he has been recently, but he isn’t suddenly a bad player. I played against him, I sprinted alongside him, I tackled him, I competed with him, blocked him, pushed him, chased him, shook hands with him and swapped shirts with him. If Bale is happy at Madrid and his team mates are happy with him then why was his agent complaining about his team mates not passing to him and why are they complaining about his lack of Spanish? As for the political fallout of selling Bale, there will be a lot less fallout of selling him for a slight profit than there will be from sacking Carlo Ancelotti.

Providing the wages are acceptable, the questions at the heart of this time-honoured conversation serve to help the player get his head around what he can expect to find once he steps into his new club for the first time.
Firstly, Madrid are a more solid side than they have been for years – far more solid than the years, not too long ago, when it was par for the course for Barcelona to stick at least four past them both home and away. Ronaldo is on a different planet compared to all but one other footballer in the world in terms of his talent and his commercial pull. But don’t forget that Ronaldo, a man whom Madrid lauds as the born-again messiah, was subjected to exactly the same treatment in his second season at the Bernabeu. Spurs and United had previous in the transfer of players between one and the other and Bale suited United down to the ground. In La Liga, they sit four points adrift of an exceptional Barcelona side who will be under a transfer embargo next season. It isn’t a case of simply leaving the club, there has to be a story that everyone agrees with and that protects everybody involved.
The media like to ask a lot of questions, awkward questions, and they like to point fingers at people who don’t enjoy having fingers pointed at them, much less have it known that they actually exist.
It can occasionally give the impression that some team-mates don’t like sharing the limelight to the point that fans begin to question if those players are too big for the club themselves. Clubs might look at him differently, they might wonder if the player has a chronic injury that isn’t known about outside of his current club. The word may already be out and perhaps Madrid’s stance is why Manchester United announced the signing of PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay last week.
World-class players are rare and world-class players who will sacrifice parts of their individual game in order to win trophies for the club are rarer still. My anonymity let’s me tell you how it is, from inside the game without the shackles of pre-conception or fan bias.

Virtually anyone involved in football knows that Liverpool committed one of the worst acts of robbery in football history when they flogged the broken Torres to Chelsea for 50m quid.

This Madrid team defends together and attacks together and is all the more successful for it.
Bale will have known that and would never have gone to Madrid looking to assume that mantle. The moment that Madrid declare an interest in a player then you know that they will succeed because they are the biggest draw for any professional. He’d have to go into the market to find out whether he can make it up elsewhere, maybe at a club that his client has no interest in signing for. That is usually where the clubs would negotiate on monies outstanding before a public argument can break out. From deal-making to play-making, from dodgy tactics to drunken antics, they reveal the unforgettable highs and the unforgivable lows.This is football as you've never seen it before.
