Manchester United have been handed a big boost in their bid to sign Gareth Bale this summer after the Real Madrid star indicated that he is only interested in a move to the Premier League, according to reports.

The Daily Mirror, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Bale has informed Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich that he is not interested in a move to Germany this summer and is only keen on a return to the Premier League.

Bale’s situation has been a source of uncertainty this summer due to his comments in the wake of the Champions League final, when he indicated that he could be set to consider his future due to his lack of playing time at Real Madrid last season.

Manchester United have long been linked with a move to sign Bale and this latest development is said to have given them encouragement in their bid to bring him to Old Trafford.

Manchester United are thought to be on the lookout for a number of quality signings this summer as they bid to build a squad capable of winning the title next season.

The Red Devils have already wrapped up deals to sign Brazilian midfielder Fred and Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot this summer.
