Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has refused to criticise Real Madrid over their world record deal for Gareth Bale.

Bale moved to Real from Tottenham for €100 million.

"I would not have paid €100 million for Bale, but if they do it is because their members allow it. There's nothing else to say," said Rosell.

On allowing Kaka to leave for free to AC Milan, Rosell also said: "Selling Kaka for zero euros to Milan is a good operation by Madrid. It saves a record high salary."
