Gareth Bale in not having his best season since his arrival to Real Madrid and many important clubs want to take advantage of this situation. According to The Independent, Manchester United are negotiating with Real Madrid Gareth Bale’s transfer for next year. The Red Devils have already tried to sign him many times during the last seasons but now he is closer than ever.
Manchester United interest has been evident for many years, and despite Los Blancos rejected a huge offer from the Red Devils last summer, now Florentino Pérez will be open to negotiate Bale’s transfer. Meanwhile, the player will not see with bad eyes the possibility of returning to the Premier League, despite he feels comfortable playing for Real Madrid.
There are many doubts in the future of Gareth Bale and after arriving Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur in the 2013 summer for an amount of €100M, the Welshman is not living an easy moment at the capital of Spain. Frequently accompanied by various physical problems throughout the course, adding only 1924 minutes played so far in 26 games.
These physical problems and the lack of continuity have ended up being reflected in statistics that are far below from what was expected. Gareth Bale has only scored nine goals so far and he has given five assists. These are very poor numbers if we talk of one of the best players in the world who plays in a huge team as Real Madrid.
With Bale’s absence, Zinedine Zidane has changed the formation from a 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2. With this new formation Real Madrid have played their best games during all the season introducing Isco or James in the line up. Now Los Blancos must decide if Gareth Bale should leave Madrid at the end of the season or if the Welshman must be Cristiano’s substitute in a few years.
