Florentino Perez: Waiting for new coach before making moves

Florentino Perez admits Real Madrid would have no qualms paying big money for Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale, but he says they need to wait for their new coach to be appointed before making any moves.

Perez has not hidden his admiration for Bale and he insists that the club would have no problem paying what is needed, with claims that Spurs would demand a world record £85million for the Welshman.

But Perez - who began the 'Galactico' way of thinking at the club - insists that big money buys, such as Bale, pay for themselves.

"Madrid always want the best. Tottenham is a very amicable club, but first we must see who our new coach will be and after that we will begin to arrange our new squad," he told Marca.

"I think the same as if we were to have a tennis team and Rafael Nadal asked me for these millions. For players like this - the investment they generate you and the revenue they produce, you can give everything to try and get them.

"I demonstrated in 2000 that with players like this you can change the dynamic, going from losing to winning.

"Then you have to look carefully at the player involved. We are not going to talk too much about Bale because he plays at a very amicable club and they will be annoyed by too much talk about him I know their chairman well and he doesn't like things like that.

"But I repeat, we have a long list, but there will be one particular player, of course."

Perez also spoke about Gonzalo Higuain and he insisted that no club has yet made contact with Real Madrid - despite Juventus and Arsenal both reportedly opening talks with the player.

He also warned any club that they would not get Higuain on the cheap.

"To date no team has told us of his interest in Higuain. I do not know what will happen tomorrow," he said.

But on Higuain's reported fee of £25million, he warned: "With £25million it's better that they don't come.

"Let's see if people ask us for £50m for everyone and we sell one of ours for half that."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
