Man United legend Teddy Sheringham had advised Gareth Bale to consider a move to Old Trafford as he won’t win ‘the war’ at Real Madrid.
The Welshman has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu for a long time now but no advances have come to fruition.
Speculations again picked up fire after it was revealed that Bale had fallen out of favour with Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.
Premier League could be a way out for the 29-year-old and Sheringham believes that Bale should place professionalism over monetary gains and look for a move back to England.
“Zidane has come in and has said in not so many words: ‘I want to get rid of Gareth Bale’.The former Spurs and United striker told Betstars.
“If the manager doesn’t bring him on as one his three substitutes when Real Madrid are losing, he’s basically saying ‘I want Gareth Bale to go’.
“Gareth Bale will be saying what a lot of the Manchester United players will say this season, with a cigar in his mouth sitting in the corner of the dressing room: ‘Well, give me my money and I’ll go then, otherwise I’m not going anywhere because I signed a long-term contract’.
“I don’t think it is a war that Gareth Bale is going to win.
“If I came in to contact with Gareth Bale and had to give him some advice, I would say: ‘Get yourself out of there. Don’t worry about the £30 million that you’re meant to be earning over the next two years. You will enjoy your life a lot more if you get out of Real Madrid and play football for a club that you want to play for and that’s going to love you’.
“I think he would be a good acquisition for any of the top clubs in England and I think they will all be after him because he’s a game-changer.”
