Barcelona's Fabregas warns Real Madrid - £85m too much for Tottenham's Bale

Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas believes Real Madrid would be 'crazy' to dish out so much money for Gareth Bale.

Reports suggest that Madrid are prepared to spend as much as £85million on the Tottenham ace but Fabregas feels their money would be better spent elsewhere.

"For me, spending €100 million [£85m] on Gareth Bale is crazy. I don't know how any club could spend that amount of money in these [economic] circumstances," he told AS.

"He is a great player with all the right attributes, but we will have to see if Madrid sign him and if he can perform there."
