Real Madrid don’t intend losing to Barcelona as they are ready to include Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez in the Lautaro Martinez transfer deal.
Lautaro Martinez is wanted by two La Liga giants, Barcelona and Real Madrid. Barcelona reportedly came with an important offer, complete with several star players that would be included in the Lautaro transfer deal.
The Barca camp is ready to offer Arturo Vidal and Carles Alena. Not only that, the name of Philippe Coutinho was also dragged along in this great opportunity.
According to the Spanish newspaper, Don Balon, Real Madrid – who previously offered a salary of 14 million euros per season – immediately increased the offer by adding Gareth Bale to the transfer deal.
Not only that, Los Blancos also added fresh funds of 50-65 million euros to Inter Milan. As an alternative, Madrid also offered James Rodriguez plus some cash.
But the problem is, Bale’s salary at Real Madrid reaches 15 million euros per week. This value is too high, even almost double the salary of Romelu Lukaku, who now holds the title as the highest paid player in the Nerazzurri camp .
Inter Milan could ask Bale to reduce his salary, taking into consideration his age and contribution with Los Merengues, but not necessarily the Welshman is willing to cut his salary by more than 50 percent.
The most likely option for Inter is to take James Rodriguez. It also depends on Antonio Conte, because the Colombian playmaker is not necessarily included in the scheme of the Italian boss.
