Gary Neville has admitted that he would love to see Manchester United complete a deal to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid this summer.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move to bring the Wales international back to the Premier League in recent days after the 28-year-old hinted that he will consider his future at Real Madrid this summer.

Bale was frustrated by his lack of starting opportunities at Real Madrid last season and hinted that he may be open to a move back to the Premier League after having come off the bench to fire his side to Champions League final glory over Liverpool FC last weekend.

Manchester United have long been linked with a move for Bale and the Red Devils are likely to be interested in signing the Wales international should he indeed be available this summer.

Neville says that he is a big fan of Bale and would love to see him at Manchester United this season, but he admitted that there is a long way to go before the Red Devils would be able to conclude a deal for the former Tottenham Hotspur star.

Neville told BBC Radio Manchester: “I’ve got a lot of admiration for him as a player.

“I’d like to see Messi play for United or Ronaldo or Neymar or all these players, but the reality is they’ve got to want to come to the club.

“That’s the first question that needs to be asked.

“If he wants to come to United then absolutely, yes, because he’s a fantastic player and he is a game changer.

“For me every top club is looking for that player who is the difference, who can turn the big games.”
