Gareth Bale has reached a pre-agreement with Man United to join them in the summer, according to reports
The Welshman has had an injury-riddled career at Los Blancos and is said to want a move back to England
If today’s paper talk is anything to go by, Welsh winger Gareth Bale is set to join English side Manchester United after it was reported that Real Madrid and the Red Devils had reached a pre-agreement for his transfer.
According to a Spanish paper Diario Gol, Bale has agreed to join Jose Mourinho’s side in the summer for an undisclosed fee.
Bale is estimated to cost around 79 million euros and Manchester United looks like his likely destination since most rumours have been linking him with a move back to England.
Bale has featured only 11 times for Los Blancos this season, his latest appearance seeing him score the winning goal in a 2-1 win against Aj Jazira in the FIFA Club World Cup.
He has had an injury-riddled career in Madrid and has aroused frustration from fans – most questioning whether he is worth the cash he cost them.
Bale joined the La Liga giants from Tottenham Hotspurs where he scored 21 amazing goals in his last season.
Manchester United have made their intent to sign Gareth Bale clear in the past and will definitely try to get the deal done this summer.
Real Madrid President Florentino Perez is said to have started negotiations with French side Paris St. Germain over the acquisition of Brazilian star Neymar, who broke the world record for being the most expensive transfer in football history (222 million euros).
The Los Blancos President is also said to be a huge fan of French wonder kid Kylian Mbappe and aims to lure him to join the European champions.
If Real Madrid makes good on their intent and sign Neymar and Mbappe, then there will be no room for Gareth Bale, even Cristiano Ronaldo who is said to have asked his lawyers to try and negotiate a possible reduction in his release clause.
Ronaldo was frustrated by the tax fraud allegations leveled against him and rumour was that he wanted to leave Spain, possibly to join PSG or return to where it all started, Manchester United.
