Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has reportedly made Manchester United his next destination of choice amid fresh speculation his time at Bernanbeu has come to an end this summer.
Bale has undergone something of a very disappointing season for Real, where he has made only 19 appearances in the La liga games because of series of niggling injuries and poor form.
And with speculation piling up that Real boss Zinedine Zidane may likely cash in on Bale and use the money to fund a move for Chelsea’s playmaker Eden Hazard, reports in Spain suggest the player has already made it known which club he sees himself next.
And while Bale’s choice is to remain at the Real, it is widely suggested that Bale does not want to walk through the exit door at the Galactico-laden side, but should the club’s hierarchy force through a move and accept an offer, then the he has little or no option to grab the chance.
Truthfully, only Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United could afford to spend the reported £80million clause it would cost to bring Bale back to the Premier League side – but it seems the Welshman only has eyes on for Old Trafford.
According to diariogol, journalist Pip Estrada reports: “The agent of the player has started to negotiate in England after being annoyed with the reactions to his injury.”
His former club Tottenham have also been mentioned as possible suitors, but even if they could afford the fee, it seems Bale does not want to return to his former team and will make Manchester United his ‘priority’ if he is forced to leave the Spanish capital this summer.
During his four-year stay at Real, Bale has scored 67 goals in 149 games.
