Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has hinted that the Spanish club may listen to offers for Gareth Bale next year after he was linked with Manchester United in the summer.

Bale was touted as a possible target for the Red Devils throughout the summer transfer window as Jose Mourinho looked for significant attacking reinforcements at Old Trafford.

However, a move failed to materialise and the Wales international ended up staying at the Bernabeu beyond the summer window.

Bale is thought to be a long-term target for Manchester United and Mourinho has made no secret of his admiration for the 28-year-old attacker.

Now, Real Madrid chief Perez has suggested that Bale could be made available in forthcoming transfer windows, hinting that Manchester United may have the opportunity to finally get their man.

Perez told Cadena SER, as quoted by Metro: “He is one of our best players and we are very pleased with him.

“There were no offers for him and what Mourinho said in relation to him was just said in a complimentary way.

“Every player is transferable right now and we’ll see what happens in a year, although I don’t know what’ll happen next year, just as nobody does.”

Manchester United are preparing for a return to Premier League action on Saturday with a crunch clash against Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.
