Gareth Bale has already decided which club he wants to join this summer, and Manchester United fans will be pleased.

The Real Madrid star moved to the Bernabeu after a couple of sizzling seasons with English club Tottenham Hotspur a few years ago. Ever since, he has been a popular figure and a regular starter for the La Liga outfit till date.

This season, however, he has had recurrent issues with injuries, due to which he has fallen down the pecking order in the Spanish capital, and Bale is currently believed to be far from happy with his position at the club.

Meanwhile, Real boss Zinedine Zidane is planning a squad overhaul at the end of the season and is set to bring in some top talent to compete for places in the first team, and Bale feels he might lose his guaranteed spot in the starting lineup next season.

Previously linked with a move to Manchester a couple of seasons ago, Bale is yet again on the radar of the Old Trafford outfit, but it is being reported that he is now ready for a move to United.

Is United’s First Summer Signing Already Done?

According to Diario Gol, Bale very much prefers a move to Manchester over London, where he is wanted by Chelsea.

The report suggests that the winger is currently settled in Spain, but Real Madrid are looking at the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Eden Hazard for a move, and spending on either of them will see Bale fall down the pecking order.

The Welshman remains a favorite for Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, but it is understood that his injury history and lack of form this season might see Perez let him leave.

Chelsea will be ready to do whatever it takes to land the 27-year-old, but it looks like Jose Mourinho will be able to sign Bale after all this summer.
