Former Spurs boss Redknapp tells Manchester United fans £100m star Bale ‘would be great signing’
Harry Redknapp has claimed it would be a ‘great move’ for Gareth Bale if he was to move to Manchester United from Real Madrid.
Bale is seemingly heading for the exit signs at the Bernabeu after having a poor season with the Spanish giants, with reports suggesting that Zinedine Zidane no longer wants him in the squad.
And with the signing of Eden Hazard from Chelsea, Bale’s future looks even more uncertain, handing the likes of United and Chelsea boost in their chase to secure a transfer deal.
But despite all the criticism that Bale has faced this summer at Madrid, Redknapp was if United would be a good move for Bale and he admitted it would be a great move.
“I think it would be a great move for him to go and get his career back on track again,” the 72-year-old said on the TalkSport website
“He’s a fantastic player and he can change any team, he’s that good. He’d be a great signing for them. Ok if they’ve got one or two kids coming through as well, that’s great as well. But what happened with the six lads who came – that happens once in God knows how many years.
“I had it with West Ham when six kids came through, with Rio [Ferdinand] and Frank [Lampard] and that group came through. They’ve gone years and years without producing a player up until that little group appeared.
“To get another five or six kids coming through who are going to be great players is very, very difficult. So you do need that blend of experience and youth, for sure, but someone like Gareth would be a great signing.”
There are a number of players at the Bernabeu that have not been that impressive this season, but all the blame should not be placed on Bale, which is seemingly what has been happening.
And United can swoop in and offer him a way back to the Premier League, they should definitely get a deal done, as he would be the game-changer they need to get back to the top of the game.
And with reports suggesting Madrid are willing to take a cut-priced deal means United would still have funds to signa few more world class players.
