Gareth Bale’s departure from Real Madrid is just a matter of time after coach Zinedine Zidane revealed his intentions to sell the Welshman.
Bale, who turned 30 this month, was an integral part of the Los Merengues side that won the Champions League treble under Zidane’s tutelage. However, the attacker has failed to win over his French boss and is looking to secure a move to a new club this summer.
Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett entered into a war of words with Zidane, calling him a ‘disgrace’ when he confirmed Bale’s imminent exit.
Former Liverpool, Manchester United and England winger Paul Ince is of the opinion that Liverpool would be the perfect club for the Welshman. Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, he said,
“For me, if Liverpool could afford him, he should go to Liverpool.”
“If you look at the front three, they have played all summer so how much rest are they going to get before the season starts?”
“Bale can play on the right, he can play left and he can play central. They have got Origi and Shaqiri but are they good enough?”
“It can’t be about money for Bale, he needs to go to a team who can win things – the European champions, the team that finished second in the Premier League.”
In his six-year tenure at the Bernabeu, Bale has won 14 trophies and scored 102 goals in 231 games for Real Madrid.
