UPDATE: August 2, 2013
According to David Hytner at The Observer, Tottenham Hotspur deep-lying forward Gareth Bale is pushing the club to accept Real Madrid's £86.3 (€100) million world-record transfer bid.
Of the 7.1 billion people living on the earth, the one person that happens to believe Bale is worth €100 million, despite Spain's turbulent financial crisis, is Real president Florentino Pérez—much to the chagrin of Madridistas.
Cristiano Ronaldo (6.9) averaged 3.5 more shots per league game than Ángel Di María (1.9) and José Callejón (1.5) combined, both of whom predominately played on the opposite flank.
You know who didn't average 3.5 shots per league game last season? Karim Benzema (2.1) and Gonzalo Higuaín (1.9).
This is the alpha mentality Ronaldo possesses at the club: 'I take all the shots and you guys are there to pass me the ball.'
Los Blancos president Florentino Pérez wants to keep the Portuguese international happy, however taking away a portion of his shots for Bale is only going to trigger another 'I'm sad' phase from Ronaldo.
Letting Ronaldo keep on shooting, even with the potential arrival of Bale, dooms the transfer for the Welshman.
From the perspective of Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, take the money!
