Hurry up already – Bale’s delayed signing for Madrid means stage is taken down

We had a hunch – call it Daniel Levy intuition – that Gareth Bale’s transfer to Real Madrid might go to the last day of the transfer deadline, though it seems Madrid themselves did not.

The world record transfer fee looks set to be broken tomorrow, though they couldn’t have been too much longer crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s at this stage.

Of course no club does glitzy player presentations to their supporters quite like the Spanish giants so a stage was erected in the Bernabeu to showcase the Welshman to the adorning public.

The only problem is that Levy is making Madrid work for it and the club has the little matter of a league game against Athletic Bilbao to take care of, so it has to be taken down, before being put back up after the match ahead of Bale’s expected arrival and presentation tomorrow.
