Mike, I think you make a very good point about the wages. Wages in the EPL are obscene. And English players, and indeed others such as Belgian players, either see these wages as an indicator of the quality of the league (which they are not), or else are just plain greedy. I guess Bale could have earned more if he had gone to Man City. But he wanted to play, train and compete with the best. Kane I would think is a level down, and would struggle to get game time at Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus or PSG. The one England player who could definitely command a transfer to a top league is Pickford.
