Man United on red alert as European giants set to offload key man for just £53m

Spanish publication Marca claims that, Real Madrid have recently decided to place their star Gareth Bale in the transfer market when the transfer window reopens in the summer,

Last summer, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had suggested that he would fight with other clubs for the Welshman if the price is not exceeded.

Due to injuries, the 28-year-old found himself in-and-out of Zinedine Zidane’s side, as he has strong competition from the Marcos Asensio.

According to Marca, the Capital outfit are looking to cash in on Bale in the summer ahead of a potentially mega spending spree to close the gap with Ernesto Valverde’s Barcelona.

The £53m-rated forward made a bright start after the winter break with a string of top-notch performances, but his future remains in doubt as Los Blancos want to offer Asensio a more prominent role.

Jose Mourinho has admired Bale’s game since playing with Tottenham Hotspur, but a reunion looks highly unlikely because the Portuguese manager already added Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal and Welsh International’s transfer will not be discussed at least vacant place occurs.
