United boost as Real are ready to sell Bale next summer



Manchester United could be set to splash the clash next summer if reports emanating from Spain are to be believed. The Old Trafford outfit have long been linked to Real Madrid forward, Gareth Bale and are primed to make an offer for the Welsh forward next summer. The 28-year-old star has not been a dominant force he has been in recent years due to a collection of injuries and form concerns. The Theatre of Dreams outfit had been linked to the player since his Tottenham days and is now in prime position to sign him. Mundo Deportivo reports that United will make a move for Bale next summer.

Bale suffered what was his worst season as a player at Real Madrid last season and was benched in the Champions League final victory over Juventus despite being fit for the game in his native Cardiff. The rise in prominence of young Spaniard, Marco Asensio and the maturity of Isco has necessitated that Bale is no longer indispensable in the Real Madrid team under manager, Zinedine Zidane. United manager, Jose Mourinho admitted to having interest in signing Bale last summer after the failed pursuit of Antoine Griezmann but insisted that his former club, Real Madrid don’t want to sell him.

However, Real supremo, Florentino Perez has laid the gauntlet to Bale insisting that no player in the team is untransferrable. Real Madrid are still looking to sign two major players next season and have identified Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich and Paulo Dybala of Juventus.

He said as quoted last month. He said:” [As for Bale], he is one of the best players we have and we are very pleased with him. “There were no offers for him and what [Jose] Mourinho said about him was just said in a complimentary way.

“Every player is transferable right now and we’ll see what happens in a year, although I don’t know what’ll happen next year, just as nobody does.” he added.

Bale is a classy left footed genius that can play on the left and right of an attacking trident. He is known for his extreme pace, creativity, crossing ability and finishing. He joined Real in 2013 for a then world record fee of £89m from Tottenham and has since won the Champions League thrice, the La Liga once and countless other trophies.
