Real Madrid president Florentino: We'll make money back from record Bale deal

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez insists paying a record fee for Tottenham star Gareth Bale won't be a problem.

Perez is convinced Real would make the money back from commercial interests.

"Players are never expensive or cheap. It depends on performance. Figo, Zidane, Ronaldo and Beckham gave us a huge revenue jump. If you invest in great players, you have more income. This allows, first, that the club is independent and belonging to members. And second, attracts other great players," he said.
