Gareth Bale has indicated to some of his Real Madrid team-mates that he is keen on a transfer to Manchester United this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Independent is reporting that the Wales international is keen to seal a move to Old Trafford after his lack of first-team opportunities at Real Madrid this season.

Bale started the Champions League final on the bench before coming on to score two goals to hand Real Madrid trophy with a 3-1 win over Liverpool FC in Kiev on Saturday.

The 28-year-old indicated after the game that will consider his future this summer following his lack of playing time under Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu.

Now, the same report says that Bale remains keen on a move to Manchester United, and he has even discussed the possibility of a move to Old Trafford with some of his Real Madrid team-mates.

Manchester United are likely to be linked with a host of players this summer as the Red Devils look to try and build a team capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

The Red Devils finished second in the top flight and without a trophy last term.
