The upcoming football season is all about the biggest transfers in the history of football. A few days ago, Lionel Messi expressed his wish to leave his childhood club FC Barcelona that created a huge sensation. And now, Real Madrid talisman and the Wales international Gareth Bale is also looking for a possible transfer to the Premier League.
However, Alan Shearer believes that the 31-year-old footballer will find it hard to get his place in the big six clubs of the Premier League. Due to the ongoing situation with current football manager Zinedine Zidane, Gareth Ball started his transfer talk with several football clubs in the top tier leagues. However, not a single one is fruitful as of now.
Alan Shearer believes Gareth Bale won’t get his place in the big six of the Premier League
While talking about the possible transfer of Gareth Bale, Alan Shearer told Coral, “He possibly wouldn’t walk into all the teams in the top six in the Premier League, it’s going to take a wealthy club to be able to afford a transfer fee and a salary to get Bale there.” He said, “Whether clubs can do that outside the top six remains to be seen, but he’s got to be playing football rather than being sat on the bench.”
The Newcastle star said, “I think it’s such a shame that a player of his ability is sitting on the bench or in the stands every single weekend.” He added, “He’s a fantastic player, still got lots to offer, whether that’s in another county.” He then further said, “Without a doubt, he could certainly still play in the Premier League, I know clubs have one or two concerns regarding injuries.”

Shearer said, “The money that he’s on, will clubs be able to afford it, even more so given the current situation that we’re in?” He added, “Someone of his ability shouldn’t be sat wasting away on the bench, his ability should be playing every single week.” He further added, “It’s a shame that he’s having to do that, and playing for Wales, albeit 45 minutes and then 90 minutes, still doing well enough, still got plenty to offer.”
The legendary footballer also expressed his high hopes for Bale and said, “I hope somewhere along the line he can get back playing football and hopefully that can be in the Premier League.” He then added, “Whether he goes back to Spurs, there’s been talk of Manchester United in recent seasons, but he should be playing somewhere.”
