Ian Rush has tipped Gareth Bale to join Liverpool if he ever leaves Real Madrid.
Bale joined Real in summer 2013 and has proceeded to win ten trophies in four years in the Spanish capital.
But the Welshman is constantly linked with a return to the Premier League, where he made his name with Tottenham.
Compatriot Rush, who own spell abroad with Juventus was not quite as successful, hopes to see him come back one day.
“Gareth Bale is a world class player – every club in the world would want him,” Rush told the Daily Mirror.
“From a Welsh point of view, I’d like him to stay, to get more European experience.
“That will benefit Wales. Any English club would want Gareth Bale.
But if Bale does leave, where does Rush see him going?
“Maybe Tottenham have first offer,” he said. “Man United has been talked about, maybe because the goalkeeper [David De Gea] could go the other way?
“I’d love to see him at Liverpool though. A world class player.
“We don’t know what will happen, but it would be great to see him back here [in England] and at Liverpool.”
