A number of Liverpool supporters have laughed off a rumour suggesting the Reds could be interested in signing Gareth Bale this summer.
Jurgen Klopp is currently enjoying some time off after a gruelling season, but it won’t be long before he is hard at work again, plotting his side’s next move.
It is expected to be a relatively busy summer in the transfer market at Anfield, with new faces coming in, such as Ibrahima Konaté, and other individuals heading the other way.
It may be that Klopp feels he could do with another attacking signing, adding more competition for places and potentially planning for long-term life without Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
Someone who wouldn’t fit the bill in that respect is Bale, due to his age, injury record and wages, but former England international Darren Bent told talkSPORT [via the Liverpool Echo] that he could be a shrewd addition.

“That guy has been at the beaches (or golf courses) since his blinder against Karius“
“I hope not“
“No please no“
“No, No, No. Tell me it’s a joke“
