Bale has been subject to continued speculation from the Spanish giants, and has reportedly told Spurs that he wishes to leave.

Calderon, who was in charge at Real between 2006 and 2009, believes that it will be extremely difficult for Spurs to keep hold of their star asset now Bale has seemingly decided upon his future.

"You never know but when the player is willing to leave, it is not easy to keep him when he wants to go," he told Sky Sports News.

"We had the same with Robinho when he wanted to leave in 2009. After that, you just have to try and get as much money as you can.

"Spurs don't want the player to go, but it seems that the player has decided to leave, so it will be difficult.

"The figure being talked about is a huge amount of money."

Calderon was the Real president when they last broke the world transfer record in 2009 when they bought Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
