Spain - Real Madrid's jaw-dropping transfer fee for Gareth Bale is a market
issue not a matter of morals, and respects rules on football financing,
European Club Association boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said on Tuesday, Supersport.com reports.
The Welshman signed from Tottenham Hotspur on September 1 on a six-year
contract for a fee of some €94 million, and critics have questioned the
symbolism of that astronomical sum as Spain wallows in economic crisis.
"The pricing of a player always depends on the market. And this player
was very requested on the market, and at the end he had that of course
incredibly high price," Rummenigge told reporters as the 214-club ECA
wrapped up its general assembly in Geneva.
