Tony Cascarino, a former striker for Aston Villa, believes that both Villa and Newcastle United should investigate the possibility of signing Gareth Bale this summer. According to him, Gareth Bale, who will be 33 the following month, still has a lot of potentials.
On Wednesday Gareth Bale sent a statement to his various social media sites in which he revealed that he would be leaving Real Madrid. This marked the end of a bittersweet nine-year stint with the club. When his current agreement ends on June 30th, he will be free to sign with any club of his choosing, provided that they have the financial means to cover his enormous compensation tag.
According to a report that was published by the Daily Mail in March, Gareth Bale earned a yearly salary of £28.8 million while playing for Real Madrid. This enormous compensation will serve as an obstacle for anybody considering applying for the position.
What did Cascarino say?
Cascarino was cited as stating the following when he was speaking to TalkSport (via the Birmingham Mail):
“You have the choice of going to Newcastle or Aston Villa. If the manager of one of those specific teams desired him, would he sign with that club? I believe you should seize the opportunity. Go have some fun! Some teams would be interested in taking him. But the agreement has to be favorable to the club. Say something along the lines of, “We’ll provide you something that thrills you. Come and show everyone in the Premier League,” and leave it at that.”
Bale needs to turn around his career
Cascarino made the comparison between Gareth Bale and his former colleagues Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema at Real Madrid. He feels that Bale’s career is not yet gone and that he may have one more chance to perform, even though the former Tottenham Hotspur player is younger than both of them. He added:
“He’s 32. He is not a senior! He could get one last shout-out from the crowd. Bale is five years younger than Cristiano Ronaldo and two years younger than Karim Benzema. Go play for the next six months. If you qualify for the World Cup, you’ll get to participate in it.”
Even though Bale had very little to do with the team’s journey to the championship, he was able to add a fifth Champions League trophy to his collection last month. He did not start the championship game and only played in two games total during the whole season of competition. He was not used in the starting lineup.
Despite this, he was greeted with a rousing round of applause when he made his last public appearance as a Real Madrid player at the Santiago Bernabeu in the course of the club’s celebrations of winning the Champions League.
As Gareth Bale’s time at Real Madrid draws to a close, the Premier League is one of the probable destinations he will pursue next
The time that Gareth Bale has spent in Spain is drawing to a close. This begs the question: what comes next for the nimble winger? It would seem that he will end up playing in the Premier League at some point.
During the 2020-21 season, he participated in a successful loan stint at Tottenham Hotspur that lasted the whole season. He made a total of 34 appearances in all competitions and contributed 16 goals and three assists.
At the moment, he is playing for the Wales national team. To guarantee their spot in the 2022 World Cup finals, they will need to win the playoffs that are set to take place this coming Sunday (June 5).
After this, it is reasonable to anticipate that he will divulge his subsequent club.
