Los Blancos' pursuit of Bale has dominated the headlines for most of the summer, despite Tottenham's insistence that the PFA Player of the Year is not for sale.
With the latest bid for the Welshman rumoured to come up to approximately 120 million Euros, several quarters including Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Barcelona midfielder Xavi have questioned whether such an extravagant amount should be shelled out for the Spurs attacker.
Nevertheless, Rosell told Sport that a player's worth was not simply determined by his current ability
"Time will tell if €120m for Bale is cheap or expensive, we have to put the player's age, his titles, his salary, his career to date and his abiliy into the mix. That will tell us if he is expensive or cheap," he explained.
"Bale, who will play, is much cheaper than players who have not even played for one minute."
La Liga champions Barcelona have been in the spotlight as well, thanks to Manchester United's interest in Cesc Fabregas. However, Rosell reiterated that the Catalan side would not sell the Spaniard as long as he wished to stay.
"Thiago has gone because he wanted to. He asked in writing to be allowed to leave. We do not want players who do not think of Barca first."
"He [Fabregas] wants to stay and there is no argument from us. I sent a letter to the president of United to say that Cesc was not for sale."
