Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp believes that Gareth Bale would be a significant signing for any club.
The Welshman’s future at Real Madrid has been cast into doubt after manager Zinedine Zidane kept him on the bench in yesterday’s 2-0 home defeat to Real Betis.
The snub saw Bale head to the dressing room after the final whistle, rather than join his team-mates on the field for a lap of appreciation for the supporters at the Bernabeu following the conclusion of the La Liga campaign.
Redknapp, who managed Bale during their time together at Tottenham which included the club’s first ever run to the Champions League quarter final has stated that either Manchester United or his former club would certainly benefit from recruiting the player who turns 30 in July.
Madrid are set for a substantial change in their playing staff this summer after a disappointing season saw them finish third in La Liga.
Redknapp told the Daily Mail: ‘Whoever signs him will be signing a fantastic player,’
‘Any club he can go to he can make a difference – he can turn any club around.
‘He would be a great signing for anyone – Man United could do with Gareth Bale.
‘There’s not a club in the country where he wouldn’t make a massive impact. I think he’s an incredible talent.
‘Anybody who gets Gareth Bale is going to lift them. If it’s Spurs, Man United, whoever it is, it would be an amazing signing for them.’
There is no doubt that Gareth Bale would add another dimension to Tottenham’s attack, but it remains difficult to see how the club would finance his wages given his extraordinary salary demands.
