#PremierLeagueStories – Former Newcastle United player #LeeClark reveals what the club may have to do to attract likes of #GarethBale #NUFC
Former Newcastle United man Lee Clark is hoping golf could help persuade Gareth Bale to join Newcastle and what will the Tyneside club have to do to get a superstar like Bale to come to St. James’ Park.
Lee Clark said “The elite footballers want to be playing in the top competitions and Newcastle aren’t in the position at the moment to offer players Champions League football, So you might have to go for a certain level of player to get to the next level. Then when you get into the Champions League you can start pushing for the elite players. When you are a player at the top club all of them can offer the same financial packages. I think Gareth Bale, he’s from Britain and he knows the Premier League very well, he’d be the superstar name and financial Newcastle could match anything he’s looking for close to his Madrid financial package. He could be the one that would buy into a project like taking Newcastle from where they are to the elite of European football again. And he won’t be found wanting for golf course [in Newcastle] and there will be lots of people willing to play with him as well.”
