Man United on alert with Gareth Bale ‘most likely’ to leave Real Madrid – report
Manchester United are monitoring Gareth Bale's situation, with the Welshman likely to leave Real Madrid, according to reports
Gareth Bale is thought to be the “most likely” of Real Madrid’s big names to leave The Bernabeu this summer, according to reports in France.
L’Equipe, as reported by the Daily Mail, is reporting that the Wales international could be heading for a surprise departure from the Champions League holders in the 2017 summer transfer window.
The same article states that Bale is expected to leave Real Madrid if los Blancos conclude a big-money deal to sign France and Monaco sensational Kylian Mbappe this summer.
Bale has been regularly linked with a move to Manchester United since moving to the Spanish capital after the Welshman opted to move to Real Madrid ahead of interest from the Red Devils.
The story in the Daily Mail goes on to suggest that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will be monitoring Bale’s situation closely.
The Portuguese coach signed Sweden international Victor Lindelof in a £30.7m deal to Manchester United from Benfica last week.
The Red Devils signed Paul Pogba in a world-record £89m deal from Juventus last summer.
