Manchester United could have just been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Gareth Bale. That’s according to Spanish reports from Don Balon, translated by the Daily Star. They write that Bale has told his ‘only friend’ at Madrid, Luka Modric, that he’s determined to force through a move to Old Trafford this summer.
The Welsh Wizard is aware of an impending arrival of Kylian Mbappe at the Santiago Bernabeu, and is ready to make a move back to the Premier League – with Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils.
Recently, there have been plenty of rumours suggesting that Bale could be on his way back to Manchester United, and now they’ve been given added substance courtesy of the aforementioned Don Balon article.
What a signing this would be if Manchester United could somehow pull this off. Bale is one of the best attacking players in world football, and we’ve all seen just how good he can be at the highest level – including Champions League finals.
It has been pretty clear that Mourinho wants to bring in a new left-sided player, given all the links with Ivan Perisic, and if Bale wants to force a move through to the Theatre of Dreams, then he could certainly solve that problem.
