Massive Boost: Man United moved a step closer to sign €51.7m rated La Liga star
Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale (€51.7) has reportedly reached an agreement with the team to leave at the end of the campaign.
Bale’s fate at the Bernabeu has been called into question in last seasons, with damages restricting the Wales international’s contributions to Zinedine Zidane’s side.
The 28-year-old has played just six starts in all tournaments so far this campaign, and Los Blancos are believed to deem him unnecessary once the summer transfer window opens.
Spanish media outlet Diario Gol stories that the two sides have now agreed on terms over his exit, signalling long-time admirers Manchester United.
The Red Devils have repeatedly been linked with Bale in last transfer windows and could submit a big-money bid for the attacker next summer to close the gap on Manchester City.
The Red Devils have also been credited with an interest in Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, although it is believed that Bale stays Mourinho’s prime transfer target.
Meanwhile, Manchester United have reportedly invited Canadian youngster Alphonso Davies to train with the club in January.
Davies, who went to Canada when he was just five-year-old after being born in a refugee camp and leaving the Liberian civil war, has had an extraordinary rise in the teams.
In 2016, he became the youngest footballer to score in the United Soccer League as a 15-year-old and then joined MLS giants Vancouver Whitecaps.
In June, he earned his first call-up to the Canadian national side and became their youngest ever goalscorer when he netted in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
And as reported by the Canadian outlet CTV, Manchester United want to take a look at the youngster.
It’s suggested the deal is dependent on permission and approval from Vancouver however if agreed; Davies will link up with The Red Devils in the new year.
And ex Tottenham defender Paul Stalteri is a massive fan of Davies.
He claimed in August: “Without the doubt, in my mind, the most talented and probably best Canadian player that we’ve produced. The sky’s the limit for him.
“He’s got immense talent. I saw that when he was 14 years old and in one of our first local camps.”
Canada head coach Octavio Zambrano claimed: “I don’t think he knows himself how strong he is.
“He plays as if he would play probably out on the street or out in the backyard. He’s just a specimen, he’s just a very well-put-together young man. Coupled with that is he has some very good technical abilities.
“Now our job is to complement that with some sound guidance … to make sure that he doesn’t get either left behind or thrust too fast into it.”
