"How I feel about Madrid signing Bale for about €100m? He is an excellent player, but the fee that's being mentioned shows a lack of respect for the world we live in," Martino said at a press conference.
Madrid already holds the record for most expensive transfer with the €94m it paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009, but Bale is likely to cost the Liga giants in excess of €100m following Spurs insistence to only sell for an astronomical fee.
The Bernabeu side has yet to finalize the signing of the 24-year-old Bale, but a transfer seems to be a matter of time as it has already prepared a special balcony on which to parade the club's new signing once the deal becomes official.
