Gareth Bale played again with his national team in the Ernst Happel Stadium in Viena (Austria), where they got a point (2-2) after a boring game. The Real Madrid winger was very important in the game as he participated in both Welsh goals. However, this time Gareth Bale couldn’t score any goal and Joe Allen and Wimmer -own goal- were the scorers.
Bale is the star in the Welsh team and all the defenders keep a close eye on the Real Madrid player. Actually, one of his best performance was with his national team in the last Euro, where they reached the semifinals. But not only the defenders keep an eye on Bale but also the scouters of big clubs.
In Austria we could see scouters from Manchester United or Juventus, according to The Mirror. There were also some other scouters in the stadium from smaller teams like Everton, Sunderland or Atalanta. According to Diario As, Thomas Bormann, Manchester United scouter, was in Viena to spy on Gareth Bale.
The Welshman is an old dream for Manchester United. Even before Real Madrid hired the winger from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, the Red Devils were trying to bring him to Old Trafford. This summer there were also rumours about an interest of Manchester United in the footballer, but Gareth Bale has said several times that he wants to stay in Madrid.
Bale is negotiating a new deal with Real Madrid but they have not reached an agreement yet. The former Spurs player wants a very high salary and Los Blancos are trying to get a lower deal. Bale is comfortable in Spain although he doesn’t speak the language yet, and he wants to stay. However, if there is any problem with the new deal, Manchester United are behind waiting for an opportunity. The Red Devils have shown this summer that they have a lot of money to spend and they were able to undertake the highest transfer in the history with Pogba’s deal. Will they also get Gareth Bale?
