Madrid press: 93% of As readers would sign Bale rather than Neymar


Only 7% of Madrid fans would pick Neymar over Bale as the most necessary signing for the team, according to a poll among As readers.

The other Madrid sports newspaper, Marca, also brings the possible transfer of the Brazilian to its home page, claiming he is a “mine of gold”.

“He tops the list of sportsmen with more income from sponsors, ahead of Messi and McIlroy”, they title. Cristiano Ronaldo is 8th in that list, according to Marca.

Both Madrid daily papers also highlight the interview of Paris Saint Germain president, Nasser Al-Kheilafi, with L’Equipe, in which he admitted Real Madrid have tried to sign Carlo Ancelotti for the next season.

As publishes an interview with Spanish National Team coach Vicente Del Bosque. The former Real Madrid manager admits Iker Casillas will be on the squad for the next international game, but “we’ll see if starts”, he says.

Both papers remind that the Copa del Rey final will take place in three days. “The last effort”, titles Marca, who claim that the key players of Real are short of physical shape at this point of the season.


  1. When I see names as Bale, Neymar and Rooney I think why?
    They don’t need those players but a good striker and a right defender.

    What I would do:
    Sell: Carvalho/Abiol, higuain, kaka
    Buy: lewandowski and right defender(maybe piszczek)

  2. Carvalho, Higuain and Kaka are leaving for sure. Maybe Albiol too, although I would try to keep him, but I understand the guy wants to be in a team where he can play as starter.

    Lewandowski would be a good complement for Benzema and Ronaldo. As for the right back… I think we need a more experienced player.

  3. Neymar is not suitable for RMA’s power football.
    Bell is good for it.
    RMA need a good RW who can keep up with CR7.

  4. real need to sell at least 4 players.raul albiol,higuain,callejon,and calvalho.they need to buy piscyke,ederson calvani,gareth bale and a centra deffender maybe hummels or thiago silva.
