News – BALE SIGNING: No Player’s Worth €100m, Says Zidane

It was “incomprehensible” that Real Madrid paid Tottenham Hotspur €100m ($131.86m) to sign forward Gareth Bale, as no player is worth that amount of money, former France striker Zinedine Zidane said on Sunday.


Bale, 24, joined the Spanish club, September 1, in a world record transfer after months of speculation.

Zidane, who is now Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant coach at Real, joined the nine-time European champions in 2001 for a then record fee. He felt at the time that fee was over the top and cannot comprehend the money involved in Bale’s move.

“Ten years ago I was bought for €75m ($98.69m) and I said I was not worth this,” Zidane told French TV channel Canal Plus.

“Now I would think that a player is not worth this. It’s football, unfortunately it’s incomprehensible – what is happening – to pay so much.”
