Gareth Bale to Liverpool!!!

Published

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale would be a “perfect fit” for Liverpool, says the club’s former midfielder Paul Ince.

Bale, 30, is “very close to leaving” Real according to manager Zinedine Zidane, who has been called “a disgrace” by the Wales forward’s agent.

Ince says Bale should “re-invent himself” and play regular football rather than pursue high wages with a move to the Chinese Super League.

“My opinion is if Liverpool can afford him, he should go there,” said Ince.

“Liverpool’s front three haven’t had much rest before the season – Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have played all over the summer,” added 51-year-old Ince, who played 81 times for Liverpool between 1997 and 1999.

“Bale can play right, left or central. If I was looking at a team if they could afford him, it would be Liverpool. He needs to re-invent himself as a player and play football week in, week out.

“He would have to take a massive wage drop. It can’t be about money for Bale. He has to go to a team who can win things. Liverpool are European champions and they want to make a massive challenge in the league again.

“Who else could afford him? Man City maybe, Man United and I don’t think Tottenham would be the right club. I would like to see him at Liverpool. He still has four or five years left. I think he’d be a perfect fit.”

Bale has been linked with Manchester United, Tottenham, German champions Bayern Munich and a move to the Chinese Super League, where he could earn a reported £1m a week.

Zidane, meanwhile, has been linked with moves for United’s Paul Pogba and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen.

“It’s a poker hand where Zidane is trying to move him out,” said Hutchison, 48. “Zidane wants money to bring in other players. It’s a power struggle but there will only be one winner – Zidane. So Bale has to find somewhere he wants to play.

“For Gareth, he has to go to somewhere where he is at the elite level and China is not in my opinion.

“We have all been there. I remember being at West Ham in my second spell. I had two years on my contract and West Ham got relegated. They had to get rid of big earners and it was clear at boardroom level they wanted me off the books.

“I was getting divorced at the time and had two years on the deal. They said they’d give me 50% of my wages to go on a free and play football. I said I was staying and they literally gave it a week and said we will give you 70%. I said it wasn’t money and said I literally can’t afford to move as I was getting divorced.”

Barcelona appoint Koeman as new coach

Barcelona have appointed Ronald Koeman as their next coach, the club said in a statement on Wednesday, as the Catalans look to rebuild after their 8-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.

Koeman, who has left his role as manager of the Netherlands, has signed a two-year-deal with Barcelona, who sacked Quique Setien on Monday after he presided over the club’s worst defeat ever in European competition.

Koeman, who will be officially presented at the Camp Nou stadium later on Wednesday, is dearly loved at Barca for his role in Johan Cruyff’s hugely successful side known as the ‘Dream Team’ and for scoring the goal that delivered the club’s first ever European Cup in 1992.

The defender later became the club’s assistant coach before embarking on a career as a head coach, managing Dutch sides Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord plus Premier League sides Southampton and Everton and La Liga’s Valencia.

“Barcelona and Ronald Koeman have come to an agreement for him to be the team’s coach until 30 June 2022,” said Barca’s statement.

“A club legend and Barca’s hero at Wembley who gave fans their first European Cup, Koeman is coming back to the Camp Nou. But this time he will be in the dugout to lead the team.”
