Bale Linked with Move to Manchester United

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid Madrid derby Barcelona La Liga

A common thread in the last few transfer windows has been rumours concerning a potential deal between Real Madrid and Manchester United for the services of Gareth Bale.

United missed out on Bale when he joined Real from Tottenham for a then world record fee of £85million in 2013, then again in 2016 before he signed a contract extension until 2022.

However, Bale's form has suffered a noticeable dip in recent months, no thanks to a string of injuries which have seen him miss 40 of the last 60 matches for Los Blancos.

'If he's not in the club's plans, I would try to be waiting for him on the other side and be fighting with the other coaches who would like to have him on their team, ' said Mourinho at the time. Bale is now out with a calf problem that is expected to sideline him for the remainder of the year.

That failed and Bale has gone on to be a success in Spain winning three Champions Leagues.

The first source, the Mirror, implies that 28-year-old Bale will make the move to Old Trafford this summer. They could also afford a big transfer fee which, in the current inflated market, could be as much as £100m.

The Sun says United are not put off making a move for Bale, despite his poor injury record. They believe that a shorter window due to the World Cup taking place in Russian Federation, and unrealistic fees being demanded on the back of the recent boom, will make it hard to get big deals done.
