- Bale's signing was apparently going to take place this Friday. At least, the clubs were going to make it official. But Marca and the rest of the media are now reporting that Willian's situation has complicated the deal. They insist, Bale will be a Real Madrid player sooner rather than later. But the announcement will not be today, it seems. Personal take: Nobody knows a thing about this transfer saga, but they're jumping to conclusions. Still, Bale will play for Real Madrid.
- Bale's contract is still unknown. Yes, the player will sign a six-year contract, but Punto Pelota says that he will get 5M€ per year while Marca believes it will be around the 10M€ Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka' get. I don't like Punto Pelota, but I trust Pedrerol more than Marca, that's for certain.

It seems that Bale will have a nice unveiling, he must be looking forward.
