Liverpool are keeping an eye on the situation regarding Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, according to journalist Graeme Bailey.
Bale’s agent, who spoke with Sky Sports, has stated that his client would like to leave Real Madrid this summer.
It was reported by Bailey that Bale is open to the idea of returning to the Premier League this season. Before making the move to Real Madrid in 2013, Bale represented Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.
According to Bailey, Tottenham Hotpsur owner Daniel Levy has told manager Jose Mourinho that the club could sign Bale.
However, Bailey added that Liverpool and Manchester United are also keeping an eye on Bale.
Bailey said that Real Madrid are prepared to fund part of Bale’s wages.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
There is no denying that Bale is a very talented player. He was a key reason why Real Madrid beat Liverpool in the 2018 Champions League final in Kiev.
Bale scored two goals in Real Madrid’s 3-1 victory. With that being the case, Liverpool supporters know how good he is.
Bale’s statistics provide a solid insight into why Liverpool are reportedly interested in the Welshman. He is a superb footballer who would add goals and assists to the current Liverpool team.
As we have stated, Tottenham Hotspur are open to signing Bale according to Bailey. It appears that all parties are interested in getting the deal done this summer.
That means that it is unlikely that Liverpool will sign Bale this summer.
