Gareth Bale still seems to be uncertain about his future at Real Madrid.

Manchester United have been consistently linked with Gareth Bale for several summers. The Red Devils had previously made attempts to sign him from Tottenham, but the forward received an offer from Madrid which he couldn’t refuse.

Things haven’t been smooth in the Spanish Capital, however. Bale has been in and out of the squad, as injuries have consistently derailed his progress.

Over the course of five seasons, the 28-year old has made 189 appearances for Los Blancos, scoring 88 goals across all competitions.

Gareth Bale’s performance against Liverpool in the Champions League caught the eyes of everyone. He came on from the bench to score two goals, and handed Real their third consecutive title.
