Gareth Bale is once again ruling the transfer speculation after the arrival of Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid. It was reported that Bale didn’t enjoy a fruitful relationship with the Frenchman during the latter’s previous coaching stint with the club.

Zidane left Real ahead of the 2018-19 season after two and a half years at the club. He won three successful Champions League honours, and had also pocketed La Liga title.

Bale, who had played an instrumental role in helping Real beat Liverpool in the 2017-18 Champions League final, had stated the following back then: “I need to be playing week in, week out, and that’s not happened this season.”

And now, with Zidane’s re-appointment, talks of Bale’s future have once again intensified.

Premier League giants Manchester United have always been linked with a move for Bale. Former manager Jose Mourinho had shown his interest as well regarding the Welshman.

And now, current interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked if United will get a quality player like Bale in the summer, but he refused to be drawn into the topic.

According to Sky Sports, the United legend said: “I can’t really comment on Gareth Bale or specific names because they’re property of other clubs.

“But we should look for quality players, definitely, and players who could improve us as a team. There’s so many factors you need to think about when you sign players.”

Bale’s agent had recently stated that the player wants to play for Real his entire career. However, many fans want the Welshman to depart from the Bernabeu this summer.
