Gareth Bale would guarantee Manchester United the Premier League title this season, according to Alan Pardew.

The Wales international has won three Champions League crowns and La Liga once during his four-season stay at Real Madrid.

Former PFA player of the year Bale moved to los Blancos in a £85.3m deal from Tottenham Hotspur in the 2013 summer transfer window.

The 28-year-old could be facing an uncertain future at the Spanish champions as Real Madrid look to sign Monaco teenager Kylian Mbappe.

Bale has been linked with a potential move to Manchester United in the summer transfer window as Jose Mourinho looks to sign a wide player.

The Red Devils have signed Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic in the summer transfer window so far.

Manchester United will be looking to improve on a sixth-place finish last term in Mourinho’s second season in charge at Old Trafford.

Former Crystal Palace and Newcastle United boss Pardew believes Bale is capable of firing Manchester United to the Premier League title.

“If Real Madrid lost Bale I don’t think he would be massively missed. He could go to Man United and guarantee them the Premier League if he keeps himself fit,” Pardew told Sky Sports.

Bale endured an injury-hit 2016-17 season to limit the Wales international to just 19 appearances in La Liga.

The Welsh forward was a second-half substitute in Real Madrid’s 4-1 win against Juventus in the Champions League final last term.
