McManaman backing Real Madrid attacker Bale for Newcastle

Former Real Madrid midfielder Steve McManaman insists a move for Gareth Bale can work for Newcastle United.

McManaman reckons Bale would be a good transfer target for newly-minted Newcastle.

And the former Liverpool ace reckons the Toons will need to very careful in the transfer market and avoid spending big bucks on older players.

In his Horseracing.net column, McManaman said: “Newcastle just have to be very careful. Everybody in the world knows that.

“Every agent will be trying to push their players into Newcastle. Gareth Bale would be very interesting, of course, he would, as he's got a year left on his contract and he's a super player.

“You've got to be careful that you don't pay older players lots of money and then they don't turn up."
