Gareth Bale can become a "superstar" again at Newcastle - Rivaldo


Brazil legend Rivaldo feels Gareth Bale can revive his career by returning to the Premier League to join Newcastle United. 

The Wales forward remains out of favour with Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane and has linked with a move to Newcastle, should their Saudi Arabian takeover be completed.

“There are rumours that Gareth Bale is being offered to Major League Soccer clubs and that he is looking forward to a move to the US soon, but I still think he has something left to show in European football at 30-years-old, before moving to the MLS,” Rivaldo told Betfair.

“I believe his career at Real Madrid is coming to an end, as his chances in the starting 11 will be limited, especially with potential new arrivals this summer. The club no longer trusts him to be a decisive player after some internal problems in the last few years.

“For that reason, leaving Real Madrid seems highly probable, but I suppose he should continue in Europe for at least two or three more years and perhaps moving to the Premier League would be the best option for him now.

“Newcastle should receive a big money injection this summer with a new owner coming to town and this could be a great destination for Gareth Bale, as he could reassume his superstar status at the club and keep earning a big amount of money.

“It would be a great chance for him to prove he is still a top-class player and be considered again one of the best in the world, so if this offer really comes, I think he should accept it.

“At Newcastle, he would be the biggest star of the team and could lead a rejuvenated squad to a good Premier League campaign.”
