Paul Ince believes Liverpool are the “perfect fit” for Gareth Bale.
Real manager Zinedine Zidane has publicly stated that the club are close to selling the Welshman, who was left out of Saturday’s loss to Bayern Munich.
The 30-year-old’s agent has called Zidane a “disgrace” over the comments.
And former Reds midfielder Ince thinks Jurgen Klopp swoop in for the four-time Champions League winner.
“In my personal opinion, I think that if Liverpool could afford him, he should go to Liverpool,” he told BBC Radio 5Live.”The reason I say that is because if you look at the front three, they’ve been playing all over the summer, Mane’s just finished the African Cup of Nations with Senegal, Salah was with Egypt and Firmino was at the Copa America.
“So how much rest are they going to get before the season actually starts? Bale can play on the right, he can play on the left, he can play central. I know they’ve got Origi and Shaqiri but are they good enough?
“If I was looking at a team, and if they could actually afford him, it would be Liverpool and that’s where Bale is going to have to take a massive drop. It can’t be about money.
“He’d be going to a team that’s the European champions, who just missed out on the league, they want to make a massive attempt again.”
Ince added: “Look at what Cristiano Ronaldo is doing at Juventus, look what he did last year in the Champions League. I think he’s a perfect fit for Liverpool.”
