Manchester United and Louis van Gaal’s intentions are clear – strengthening the squad and making the club title challengers once again. One player who’d certainly help that cause would be the Welshman Gareth Bale.
The world record signing had a superb start to his life in Madrid, but this season has been the complete opposite. Last year he was scoring winners in Champions League finals and now he finds himself getting booed by the Real Madrid fans for below par performances.
According to AS, Bale himself wants to leave Real Madrid and Manchester United are clearly interested in the player, but thats not to say Madrid are going to be prepared to sell their largest signing ever in terms of a transfer fee.
If he does find himself out of the exit door the likely destination is the Premier League, and there are probably only three potential suits for his signature in one way or another, with Manchester United certainly one of those clubs.
Would Bale be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
