Steve McManaman has said that Gareth Bale should not pass up the chance of moving to Real Madrid.
McManaman played for the Spanish giants betweeen 1999 and 2003 where he won two La Liga titles and two European Cups. The former Liverpool player believes that Bale should make the switch in order to play in the Champions League.
Yet again, it seems that Real Madrid are up to their tricks of trying to lure Bale to Spain. Zidane and Madrid chairman Florentino Perez have already publicly spoken of their admiration for the Welshman.
Take a look at the comments below and see what you think. It reads to us as if it’s the latest round of Madrid mind games.
“If he ever has the opportunity to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona I would never say ‘no’ to them,” McManaman told The Mirror.
“I think sooner or later, whether it’s this year or next year, he needs to be playing against the best people in the world.
“He needs to be testing himself against the best players in the world because he is arguably one of the best players in the world on current form.”
“Sooner rather than later he’ll want to be playing in the Champions League and if Tottenham can’t deliver that this year I think they’re going to struggle to hold on to him,” he added.
“But it all depends on whether he’s comfortable in London, whether he wants to play abroad and whether he fancies the challenge abroad.
“He’s 23 at the moment, he’s still very young and he’s a new father – he has got time on his side.
“But it all depends on what he wants to do doesn’t it?”
