Dimitar Berbatov believes Mauricio Pochettino and Gareth Bale will sign for Newcastle United

According to Betfair (h/t Daily Mail), Dimitar Berbatov has backed former Tottenham favourite Gareth Bale to move to Newcastle if Mauricio Pochettino takes the reins on Tyneside.

The Magpies are close to completing a £300m takeover by a Saudi Arabian consortium. It has been backed by the country’s public investment fund.

According to the Bulgarian striker, Bale could be tempted to make the move to St. James’ Park. This is provided Newcastle can hire a big name such as Pochettino (h/t Daily Mail).

Mauricio Pochettino could take the reins at Newcastle United

The Argentine is currently out of a job since vacating the hotseat at Tottenham earlier this season. One of the finest young managers in the game, his name is sure to feature among the candidates to replace Steve Bruce.

Berbatov believes signing Pochettino would be a statement of intent by the Newcastle owners. He believes prospective targets will take the Magpies more seriously if the Argentine is in charge of the club (h/t Daily Mail).

“If he goes there then it will be the first sign from the new owners, to the players they are targeting, that the club means business.”

Bale’s future at Real Madrid is currently in doubt. Newcastle could make a splash by tempting the Welshman to join them (h/t Daily Mail).

The 30-year-old spent six years at Tottenham and went on to score 56 goals and 58 assists in 203 appearances for us. He isn’t getting any younger, being able to attract a player of his stature will be a great for Newcastle.

Berbatov, however, has voiced his opinion that Newcastle does not hold a candle to the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester United, clubs Pochettino has been linked with (h/t Daily Mail).

It remains to be seen if Pochettino and consequently Bale decide to move to St. James’ Park. The Argentine endured a frustrating time at Tottenham with regards to transfers.

One thing is for sure, if he does take the job, money to spend will not be a concern.
