So why should we care, much less be surprised, that in a nation recently on the brink of financial collapse one man will earn a salary equivalent to about 50,000 times last year's average gross national wage? Surely the money being paid was got fairly and legally. Clearly the individual(s) paying him are free to use the money as they see fit. And certainly those with such wealth have no responsibility to Spain's 27.2% jobless. I think they would argue that it would be worse if not for them, and that it is government social welfare that allows these jobless slackers to continue their sluggish ways while they somehow find the money to support the local football club. Well I suppose everyone is happy. Now the important question is can Gareth Bale fit into a team that plays the Spanish style? Not every overpaid striker has managed as well as expected. My guess is Bale could prevail. So what will he cost to get him to another team?
