Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince believes Gareth Bale would be a good fit at Liverpool and would help them win more trophies.
Gareth Bale and Real Madrid are on different paths right now, and a transfer feels imminent. The Welsh forward is at the crossroads with manager Zinedine Zidane, with the club trying hard to find a suitors. As quoted by Daily Mail, former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Ince has suggested while talking on BBC Radio 5 that the Welshman would fit in perfectly at Liverpool.
Bale’s future has been up and hanging by a thread since Real Madrid defeated Liverpool in the Champions League final last year. However, upon the departures of Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo, new avenues opened up for Bale at Madrid. In fact, Bale was inclined to leave the club during that period, but with his most significant problem in Zidane gone, he felt his future remained in Madrid.
Zidane has since re-joined the club and ever since his return, Bale’s future has been the subject of uncertainty. Bale’s links with Manchester United never ceased, and this summer too he was written about broadly in connection to United. But former Manchester United midfielder Ince thinks otherwise and believes he would fit in at rivals Liverpool quite perfectly.
Ince 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. 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.”
However, as things stand the chances of Bale joining Liverpool are close to none. Despite Bale’s evident talent and game-changing prowess, his price tag and a massive salary have put off Premier League clubs from pursuing a deal.
In recent developments, Bale has been linked with a lucrative move to the Chinese Super League where he could earn as much as £1 million-a-week in wages. Although there are complications with Chinese clubs paying transfer fees Real Madrid might demand, they are more than willing to offer an eye watering pay package.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are also ready to terminate his contract so that he can seal his exit quickly. It will enable them to save plenty of money on his recurring wages. But as things stand, Paul Ince’s advice to Champions League holders Liverpool are unlikely to be paid heed to.
