Journalist rules out Man United signing 28-year-old this summer
Sky Sports News reporter Michael Bridge rules out Man United signing Gareth Bale this summer
Gareth Bale won’t be moving to Manchester United this summer, Sky Sport News reporter Michael Bridge has claimed.
The Red Devils signed Chile international Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal from Arsenal in the January transfer window.
Manchester United made Sanchez the best paid player in the Premier League in order to beat Manchester City to the Chilean’s signing.
The Red Devils have already signed Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot in a £17m deal from FC Porto in the summer transfer window.
Manchester United have also agreed to a £52m deal to sign Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk to bolster their options in the middle of the park.
Real Madrid star Bale has been linked with a return to the Premier League with Manchester United in the summer.
However, Julen Lupetegui’s appointment as Zinedine Zidane’s replacement could mean Bale has a future at Real Madrid.
Sky Sports News reporter Bridge doesn’t anticipate Bale ompleting a move to Manchester United in the current transfer market.
“I can’t see Bale signing for Man United,” Bridge told the Transfer Talk podcast.
Bale completed a move to Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur in a £85.3m deal in the 2013 summer transfer window.
The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League table last term to secure their best finish since the Sir Alex Ferguson era.
