› BSG Valentine advises Gareth Bale on his world record transfer to Real Madrid

BSG Valentine is delighted to have advised on the successful transfer of Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid.

Partner Melvyn Gandz, FCA, who has been Gareth Bale’s accountant for the past seven years, led the team of professional advisors advising the player on his high profile transfer.  BSG Valentine were assisted by London law firm Fladgate LLP, led by head of corporate, Grant Gordon and Spanish lawyer, Iñigo Landa.

Melvyn Gandz commented:

“Once the basic terms of the deal were negotiated between Real Madrid and Gareth, it was necessary to appoint specialist sports lawyers from the UK and Spain to advise on the legal negotiations, including employment matters, tax and image rights.  Grant Gordon, Iñigo Landa and the entire team worked tirelessly to get the deal over the line.”

Gandz has worked with Stellar Group, for close to 20 years.  He added:

“Stellar gave my firm an opportunity many years ago to work in the field of sport.  It was amazing to be a part of this transaction and to witness Gareth signing his contract in front of a world audience.  Deals of this nature do not just happen.  Stellar delivers for its clients at the highest level and whilst several agents were involved behind the scenes, a club such as Real Madrid will only work with the top agents.  Stellar’s Jonathan Barnett and David Manasseh did a superb job in delivering the largest football transfer in history.”
