Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho needs a top attacker before the transfer window closes this month and if reports in the media are anything to go by then a superstar might join the Red Devils.
Welsh international and Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has been linked with the Old Trafford club for quite some time.
Few days back, we covered a report (via Marca) claiming that the Los Blancos are prepared to sell Bale for 90 million pounds to make way for Mbappe. The Spanish source stated that the likes of Man United and Chelsea want him.
More recently, Don Balon claimed that Bale knows that he will be sacrificed by the European Champions if Mbappe arrives at the Bernabeu and he has told his friend Luka Modric on whatsapp that he wants to leave this summer.
Moreover, the Spanish source mentioned that the 28-year-old playmaker has got an offer on the table from Mourinho’s Manchester United, which he is ready to accept. It is also stated that United are monitoring the situation and are ready to secure his signing now.
The former Tottenham Hotspur superstar had an injury hit campaign last term in which he could only start 24 games in all competitions for Madrid, scored 9 goals and provided 5 assists. His current deal with Real will expire in 2022, he earns (Guardian) around $457,000-a-week, $24million-a-year after tax.
Gareth is a proven Premier League star who has won the PFA Player of the Year award on two occasions and will largely improve Man United’s attack. In your opinion, should Mourinho splash the cash to lure him?
