Anyone know how to get in contact with Levy? Willing to donate a kidney to raise a few seconds worth of Bales salary.

His return would really help Kane, he would love to knock a few points off his handicap.

Can’t say I watch any Madrid games but does he play centrally now? He’s 31 at the beginning of next season and his dodgy legs can’t last forever.

I’m sure we’ve spoken to Madrid about him many times since he left. Just can’t see this one going anywhere for the obvious reason.

Well 600,000 obvious reasons each week.

he’d resell it and buy benteke.
Well we should soon be up to the magical 100 pages, that's when it all happens.
It’s either another 100 pages of guys getting their cocks out to jizz all over the internet or another 100 pages of levy bashing and doom.
Can’t wait..

On the image rights thing - the issue with Dybala was that someone else owned them as he flogged them when he was younger. If someone amenable to this deal owns the rights then they’re not a problem (I think?)
If this is true then it shouldn't be a problem...

"At just 18, Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale created Primesure Ltd. in 2007 to manage his image rights and sponsor relationships, and gave his parents 40% ownership of the shares. Bale owns the balance."

Do Real want/need the drama of keeping him around?

Think they would be quite happy to let him go. Despite being fit at the weekend wasn’t even on the bench.

When you say he has done well he has scored 2 goals in 14 games and had two assists. Not sure has completed 90 mins that often either.

January 31st at 11am, the inevitable “Was always a difficult deal. Can’t blame DL on this one. Had deal agreed then Madrid moved the goalposts”. It’s the hope that kills us. That being said I want Bale back so badly. 🙏
The thing is, if ever there was a difficult deal to do, you’d think this would be it. But after Dybala we obviously have an appetite to try for the player if the manager wants him.

Im sure there’s much easier deals that Levy could and has fucked up though. Maybe with any luck those experiences might help (I’m clutching at straws here!).

They better get on with it though if we want to complete it by deadline day. His medical will take about a week with the amount of injuries he’s had!

An 18 month loan is ideal because of this.

It’s too complicated to do at this stage in the window. We should have started the process earlier!!

Why are his image rights an issue? It's a loan and they're owned by him/his family and Real as far as I understand it.
