Of course not. Just don't buy the "offer 150m and they'll have to be tempted" premise.

Basic logic. Tied down to a 2024 contract from memory at 200k basic and 15m with bonuses.

Selling him now would undo 15 years of careful building to where they are now.
Has taken quite some time to get a foothold at the higher end of the table. They won't throw that away for 150m (which is unders).

Use your brain for once.
It's just a question, no need to get so emotional over it and when tottenham bottle there way out of the top 4 this season what makes you think he'll stay? Real madrid can't offer those wages or more?!? Lol

Every summer people prophesy this happening, from their warped view that we're some helpless club.

Eriksen and Alderweireld probably do leave. Harry probably is made captain soon enough.
What Real can offer was not really the point, they've given him a contract far and beyond that of any of his teammates, probably double the next guy, not something we'd do for a guy we're selling. Alderweireld the perfect example.

That's all fine and dandy, plain fact is tottenham are not going to be winning any trophies in the forseeable future, they will regress further from next season onwards, more than likely europa league next season missing top 4 this season, why would he hang around?

Why did Ozil hang around then?
Why did Lacazette sign? Aubameyang?

You were just a shit Europa team remember...
I could list other signings but they're mostly shite players.

Facts are there are 5 teams fighting for 3 places. City are nearly always a lock now for top 4.
There's no longer so much shame attached with EL football, all 5 have played there in the last 4 seasons.

That doesn't mean it is or will be permanent. If that's where we are next season so be it.
It won't mean a slide is imminent or permanent or that a resurgence the following season can't happen. That's just your warped one eyed view.

Won't Hazard be entering his last 12 months?

I've included De Gea as he isn't signed up long term and Courtois hasn't done very well. And RM is still the pinnacle GK job for any Spanish keepers.
There is that perception because at first Real fans weren't happy he was signed, because they were happy with Navas and Courtois used to play for Atletico, but to say he hasn't done well this season is just not true. He's had many good games for them.

Good on him for wanting out.
Until now, Bale actually doesn't want out. It's Real that wants to sell him.

Think it's safe to say he hasn't done well to the standard that's been expected. He is an excellent keeper but has had some shocking games.

That actually seems like a lot of money for a 28 year old with only 1 year left on his contract.
It seems that Hazard only wants RM and isnt likely to sign a new deal at Chelsea anytime soon.

Negotiations should really be pretty quick in that scenario.

You try and make out you’re having a legit conversation but really you’re just a trolling campaigner. Get a life ffs

Chooka talking about spurs players bailing, least we got players that would hurt us if they left. Remind yourself Chook’s that your club doesn’t have cash to spend and you’re miles off challenging for the PL let alone the CL. you still ain’t got top four btw, your away form is deplorable and unless that changes you’re also in the EL next sesson

Can Vinicius Junior play on the right flank?
Don't think so but he might have to learn. TBF, he is still a kid who has had too much responsibility this season. He could do with rotating with someone like Hazard and playing some games on the right or potentially up top.

What a fan base.
101 goals in 223 games. Scored in 2 CL finals.

Good on him for wanting out.
Absolute disgrace of a club. I have no idea why any decent person would support them. What's the point of all trophies and money if the supporters boo the team regularly and turn on individual players for no apparent reason at all? And it's not as if this is all a recent thing, ******* FC Franco.

8 first team signings is a bit overboard imo
yeah that is the sun for you.
Mbappe, Neymar and Pogba would cost about 8-900m on their own.

They could get back to the top with a new striker, Hazard, and Eriksen to replace Modric.
New Striker (not Mbappe)
Hazard Vinicius/Asensio/Bale
Eriksen Casemiro Kroos
Theo Hernandez Ramos Varane Carvahal
Courtois

They need to spend a bit on the final third but Solari was awful and that has been overlooked a bit imo. They won't be successful buying all those players anyway. It never works.
