During recent talks held with Madrid’s higher-ups, Jonathan Barnett, Bale’s agent, has indicated that the winger is willing to depart for Old Trafford, as per Spanish publication Diario Gol.
Los Blancos have been informed to listen to any offers from from the Premier League giants, should Jose Mourinho’s side propose a deal. Interestingly, the former Tottenham man has been linked with the Red Devils recently.
The electric forward’s Real Madrid career has been inconsistent, mainly due to constant injury woes. Since arriving at the Spanish capital, the club’s record signing missed 17 games in his first full season, 23 games in 2015-16 season, and almost half of Madrid’s fixtures last season.
However, when fit, the Welsh superstar manages to produce top drawer performances. He scored 12 times and assisted 3 goals last season – which was hardly impactful when compared to the rest of Real Madrid forwards.
Meanwhile, Zidane’s men have been thriving on the pitch even in Bale’s absence, as the Galacticos secured a Champions League and La Liga double last season.
Moreover, the French manager preferred Isco even when Bale was fully fit, with even Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly wanting the Spaniard to start with him in the Champions League final.
Nonetheless, Jose Mourinho will be keen on bringing more goalscorers to Manchester after failing to register a fair amount of goals last season. Bale would certainly serve that purpose, and would be an incredible addition to the current United squad, which looks to be ready to take the league by storm next season.
