Former Real Madrid GM Arrigo Sacchi believes the club would make their money back from splashing out on Gareth Bale.

Sacchi spoke of the reported €100m offer for Tottenham and Wales talent Bale.

"I think the Bale signing would be a commercial operation. Madrid have always wanted to sign a British player because of sponsorship."
