Would it have been different against Ireland with Bale on the field?

However, he did speculate that being often played out of position by Madrid on the right wing may not have helped. Therefore the Spanish giants are willing to spend some of their big names, in order to fund the purchase of the Tottenham Hotspur forward.

Real Madrid will put Gareth Bale up for sale at £89million, according to reports in the Spanish media.

It cites the 66 matches Bale has missed during his five seasons at the Bernabeu since the Welshman joined the club from Tottenham in the summer of 2013.

But Spurs continue to insist they do not need to sell the England hitman. It is reported that Kane could end up costing a huge fee of £179m.

Toshack discounted an idea raised in the local press that there could be a psychological factor involved given Bale's history of regular problems and uncertainty over the exact nature of his current injury. Harry Kane's excellent early season form has led to praise from pundits and neutrals alike.

Paper Round's view: Seems like a lot of money for the left-back though he could replace Luke Shaw, who the paper speculates Mourinho is ready to let go.

The potential ground-shaking move would see Bale, 28, and Modric, 32, return to the club that propelled them to worldwide success. One of the few players from the Premier League who was part of the list released by France Football.

And El Confidencial claimed yesterday that Bale is in a "fight not to exhaust the diplomacy of (Zinedine) Zidane and the patience of Florentino (Perez)' due to his lengthy injury list". All the players make it difficult for me when picking the team. We're not sure we believe the assertion that Turkish club Besiktas were the only club to express an interest in the Germany international, but we can believe £330k seemed a steep price. The Frenchman's status at Madrid has never been solid and he's always been linked with a move away.

"He is now 28 and 11 years after making his debut with me at 17, these should be the best years of his life".
