"I told David Gill to ask for £150 million. Perez would have paid. The only thing that hurt me, and I said this repeatedly to David Gill, was that we didn't demand enough. I told David, 'Ask for £150m.' 'Don't be silly,' he said. 'They'll never pay that.' I still keep asking myself what Senor Perez would have said if we had asked for £150m. Considering they signed Gareth Bale for £85 million, I believe they would have agreed to pay between £80 and £150 million. I am sure, because I know that Perez knew perfectly the quality of the player he was getting, as shown by Cristiano's stats at United."
