Man Utd in ‘advanced talks’ for Gareth Bale – report
5 months ago, 12 July 14:16
Manchester United have upped their pursuit of Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, according to a report.
The Manchester Evening News claims Bale has been identified as the ‘perfect addition’ by United, who opted to prioritise the Welshman over a possible move for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The story suggests “talks over a transfer have reached an advanced stage” though Bale would have to be convinced that Old Trafford is his ideal destination should he decide to return to the Premier League.
Bale scored twice in the Champions League final victory over Liverpool but the 28-year-old started on the bench, as he did for all but three game sin the competition last season.
The winger will hold talks with new Real boss Julen Lopetegui, who is expected to oversee a summer of change at the Bernabeu in the wake of Ronaldo’s exit.
