Manchester United have been interested in signing Welsh international Gareth Bale since he was at Tottenham Hotspur.
If the latest reports are anything to go by then the Mourinho is now clear to sign the current Real Madrid superstar for Manchester United because Zidane wants him sold this summer.
Back in October 2016, the former Spurs star signed a new deal with the Los Blancos which has a mammoth release clause of €1 Billion (The Guardian). However, he is reportedly not important anymore.
According to an exclusive report covered by Marca, the French boss is ready to sign Kylian Mbappe for Madrid but he does not want to make the front-line overcrowded and in such a scenario, he is ready to sell Bale first.
The Spanish source have mentioned that Real have slapped a price tag of 100 million euros on the 28-year-old star and are now looking to send him back to the Premier League where primarily Manchester United have shown serious interest.
If reports from last month are taken into consideration then it will be safe to say that United are actually clear favorites to secure his signature. Why? because the player wants to join the club.
Don Balon mentioned that Bale has a secret unwritten pact to join the Red Devils. On the other hand, more recently, Independent reported that he only wants to join Manchester United if he leaves the European Champions.
Gareth is a world class playmaker but last season, he was mostly on the treatment table. In your opinion, should Mourinho splash the cash to sign him?
