Manchester United qualified for the Europa League final last night after beating Celta Vigo 2-1 on aggregate in the semis.
It looks highly unlikely that they will finish in the top four in the Premier League but winning EL will confirm their place in the next season’s Champions League.
As far as the transfers are concerned, Welsh star Gareth Bale is heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window. Few days back, we covered a report (via Diario Gol) that the 27-year-old Real Madrid star has verbally agreed to join the Red Devils this summer if they qualify for the UCL.
Now, British source Independent have exclusively revealed that the former Tottenham Hotspur playmaker is willing to sign for Man Utd and the move is likelier to happen than ever before.
In the current campaign, Bale has mostly been on the treatment table and in his absence, the likes of Isco and Asensio have impressed big time under the management of Zinedine Zidane.
He is contracted with the Los Blancos until 2022 and is currently earning £475,000-a-week (€560,000-a-week) (Star).
So far, Gareth has only started 17 league games this season, scored 7 goals and provided 3 assists. He is one of the best playmakers around and will surely improve Man United’s attack.
However, as per the provided Independent link, Mourinho’s priority is to land Brazilian international Willian from Chelsea. The Samba star has mostly warmed the bench for the Blues under Antonio Conte and may look to move.
The former Shakhtar attacker has made 31 league appearances for the Stamford Bridge club but could only start 13 times. Willian has 11 goals and 3 assists to his name this season (all competitions). In your opinion, should Mourinho sign Bale or Willian?
