Welsh manager Ryan Giggs believes Gareth Bale will be a perfect fit at Manchester United.
The Red Devils have always been linked with Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale. Managers come and go at Old Trafford, but each one of them has the same desire to sign the former Tottenham star. This summer, Jose Mourinho is interested in signing him up.
After Madrid’s Champions League triumph, Bale fueled rumours about a summer exit. The 28-year old believes that he needs to play “week in, week out”, which he hasn’t been provided with at the Spanish capital.
Bale was said to be certain to leave if Zidane continued as Real Madrid manager. However, new boss Julen Lopetegui is likely to sit down with the player and convince him to stay at the Bernabeu.
Meanwhile, Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs considers that his fellow Welshman will be a great signing for the club. In an interview to South China Morning Post, he said that Bale fits the bill to be a Red Devil, and would be adored by the fans.
“I’d be a happy United fan, that’s for sure,” Giggs was quoted as saying. “I think he’s a Man United player. I think the fans would love him.”
But the Welsh manager believes that the player needs a solid reason to leave a club where he has won three Champions League titles. He also believes Bale is at the right club for his calibre, but the lack of playing time is forcing him to look at options.
“He’s at a club where he’s won three Champions Leagues so why would you leave? I think there’s been talk for the last three years of Gareth moving. I think he’s at the right club but of course, he wants to play,” Giggs added.
By signing Bale, Mourinho would add a dangerous weapon to his arsenal that could help him lift the Premier League title next season. The Welshman’s Champions League experience could also help United go deep into the competition after a long time.
