Real Madrid are reportedly open to selling Gareth Bale to Manchester United for a fee of around £100million as they look to fund moves for Kylian Mbappe or Eden Hazard this summer.
The Spanish giants are looking to make some changes to their squad this summer as they line up a new generation of ‘Galactico’ signings ahead of next season.
Although Bale is not keen on leaving Real, he too could be open to an offer from United and has made that clear to some of his team-mates, according to the Independent.
The Welshman has had a successful four seasons at the Bernabeu, winning two Champions League titles with the chance of a third this weekend, but his place has been increasingly under threat this season.
The fine form of Isco has threatened Bale’s place in Zinedine Zidane’s Champions League final starting XI, and that could benefit United if they’re ready to pay a world-record fee for the 27-year-old.
The former Tottenham forward has been linked with the Red Devils several times in the past, and would be an ideal addition to a side that lacked spark in the final third under Jose Mourinho in 2016/17.
United have also been linked with top attacking players like Antoine Griezmann ahead of the summer, but the Frenchman no longer looks available after reports that he’s agreed a new contract with Atletico Madrid.
