Man United transfers: ‘Gareth Bale won’t join Red Devils’
Spanish football expert Graham Hunter says Gareth Bale won't be moving to Manchester United
Manchester United can forget about signing Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, according to Spanish football expert Graham Hunter.
The Red Devils have been regularly linked with the Wales international despite Bale continuing to play a vital role in Carlo Ancelotti’s side this season.
Hunter revealed United tried to lure Bale to Old Trafford before his Madrid move – and the La Liga expert can’t see the forward moving to United any time soon.
Hunter told Sky Sports: “They (Man United) have the budget, they tried to sign him, he turned them down when joining Real Madrid. It will not happen unless he goes to Real Madrid and says: ‘Me and my family are not happy here.’
“But that is not the case at the moment, so I think for (now) United can forget it. In the future, maybe, but stories are just stories at the moment.
“There is more to come from him. He is not playing as a complete team footballer at the moment – with all his duties – as he was last season, but he keeps winning them games.
“And if he does what he did last season and wins them more trophies, then why should he leave?”
