Real Madrid legend Raul believes Tottenham Hotspur have overestimated the price of Gareth Bale as his former club continue in their pursuit of the Welsh forward. Raul, who now plays for Qatari club Al Sadd, says Spurs’ asking price of £100m – a fee that would break the world transfer record – is too high.
“Bale is a wonderful player. I understand the Real Madrid board is working hard to assemble the best team possible. But the price is too high,” Raul told his club’s website. “Tottenham overestimate the price of Bale.”
Raul is also backing Italian Ancelotti to improve Real this season. “Jose Mourinho did a very good job with the team, Ancelotti is one of the best coaches in the world,” he added.
