Jamie Redknapp has urged Manchester United to sign Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.

The Red Devils capped off their Premier League campaign with a 1-0 home win over Watford on Sunday. But despite finishing second in the table and bagging improved stats as compared to last season, their campaign seemed far from exciting.

Following the victory at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho gave his own assessment of his team’s performance in the league, by stating: “If you want to be positive and respect the effort of everyone and the clear numbers and pragmatic numbers of the improvement, you say all positive things.

“The best position for five years, a huge amount of points that would normally give a fight for the title until the last few weeks, lots of clean sheets, Golden Glove, more goals than last season and the second-best team in the country.

“Also, in the second major competition in the country, we are one of the two best teams; we are playing the final [against Chelsea in the FA Cup] so if you want to read it in a positive way, you can in a very objective way.”

However, despite these improved statistics, it is clearly evident that the Mancunian outfit needs to bring in some star players who could bring the excitement back at the Theatre of Dreams next season, and Jamie Redknapp knows precisely the player Mourinho could sign.

Writing for Daily Mail, Redknapp claimed: “They finished second and could win the FA Cup but let’s face it… this is one of the most boring United teams. They signed off the league season with a 1-0 win over Watford that was shown last on Match of the Day.

“If Jose Mourinho wants to change that, he should go and buy Gareth Bale. He has won it all at Real Madrid and won’t be fazed by the Premier League. United won’t be the only ones after him. If Eden Hazard goes to Real Madrid, I’m sure Chelsea would be keen on a swap deal.

“After a season of limited game time, Bale will be keen to prove he is still a world-class talent. What better way to do so than inspire a team to properly challenge City.”
