‘Betrayed’ Gareth Bale To Leave Real Madrid If He Misses Champions League Final

Manchester United are ready to swoop down on Gareth Bale if Zinedine Zidane chooses not to play him in the UEFA Champions League final in Cardiff, according to several reports.

Ever since the Welshman left Tottenham Hotspur for Real Madrid back in 2013, he has been linked to Manchester United as a possible transfer move.

But the transfer may actually materialise this summer, depending on Real Madrid’s mega clash against Juventus on Saturday. The game’s result, along with Zidane’s selected starting lineup, could play a huge role in deciding Gareth’s future in the Spanish capital.

Despite having sidelined due to injury and having missed most of the season, the winger has fallen out of favour with Zinedine Zidane’s first team choice. While Bale does seem to have healed up, it’s only for the manager to judge whether he is capable of reclaiming the starting spot.

Things don’t look to good for the Welshman, however, as several reports from Spain suggest Zinedine may choose to play Isco ahead of Bale in the first team.

During the winger’s time on the sidelines, Isco put up spectacular performances for Los Blancos, and pulled them through as the La Liga Champions.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo believes that Bale is almost certain to start the game, but would feel ‘betrayed’ if not given the opportunity to start in his homeland. Despite either possible chance, Manchester United would be understandably keeping a close eye on the situation brewing up.

The chances of the sale of the talisman would be bleak, if any, before this summer, as Florentino Perez would have to retain the player in return for public support for the upcoming Presidential elections.

A player of the quality of Gareth Bale won’t come cheap for Manchester United either, and knowing the financial status of either of these clubs, the numbers can reach high stakes.

Jose Mourinho is in search of that one spark in his team which can ignite the fire, and Gareth Bale might just be the one to do that.

With sublime finishing, incredible pace, and knowledge of England right from the grounds of Southampton to White Hart Lane, he certainly nows their football well, and could prove to be a humongous addition to the Red Devils’ squad.
