Man United are close to signing €60m-rated world-class attacker
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has announced that Gareth Bale has not been involved in his team because talks are ongoing over what he hopes will be an imminent transfer. Wales international has indeed fallen out of favour at the Bernabeu in recent times, and Zizou told a press conference he hopes Gareth would be gone as soon as possible.
French manager made it clear that Los Blancos were in talks with Bale’s new club over his exit, though he did not name where the former Tottenham attacker might be headed. Earlier in the summer, Welshman was a target for Red Devils on loan, which makes sense as he’d surely still be an upgrade on Alexis, even if he’s not been at his best form.
The 30-year-old winger being included in any deal for Man United midfielder Paul Pogba, though Zidane’s words now suggest this is looking less likely. Bale had snubbed Red Devils and chosen Bayern Munich as his next move another potential deal that makes sense due to the Bundesliga giants just losing Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
It seems we’re likely to find out Gareth’s next destination soon, but there may not belong left for Man United to get involved if they still retain an interest in him. Last season Welsh forward played 42 games, scored 14 goals and made seven assists in all competitions.
Bale has contracted with the Spanish club until 2022, and his release clause is around €60m. He is a captain of the national team and also helped them to reach the semi-final in the Euro 2016, but after losing 2-0 against Portugal, they knocked out from the tournament.
