Liverpool might be involved in a shocking race for the signature of Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale, according to the Daily Star. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has already stressed his desire to bring the winger to Old Trafford, but it seems the Reds are willing to challenge the Devils’ for the Wales international.
Jurgen Klopp is on the market chasing a potential replacement for Philippe Coutinho, without much success so far. Riyad Mahrez and Thomas Lemar will most likely stay with their respective teams this January, and the German expert is forced to look for other alternatives.
The former Southampton player is widely recognized as one of the best wingers in Europe, and his eventual arrival at Anfield would represent a major boost for Liverpool.
The 28-year-old forward arrived at Santiago Bernabeu from Tottenham back in 2013 for a record fee of €100 million. Florentino Perez is reluctant to give a discount to any interested parties, so both Premier League’ giants will have to allocate a significant amount of money to take Bale back to England.
