Gareth Bale has been heavily linked to Manchester United lately, and it looks like a deal could happen following the latest reports circulating over the last day.
The player, whose reported £600,000-a-week wages have previously proven to be a stumbling block, would probably also have to accept a cut in his wages in order to leave the Bernabeu.
There is no doubting the quality of the 31 year-old as he has scored 166 goals and supplied 138 assists in 499 appearances across his career, per Transfermarkt. He has also won the Champions League four times, as well as 13 other trophies, and he could definitely add an injection of quality to the Red Devils’ squad.
The winger has not played a lot of football as of late for Madrid, but he would definitely add some great experience to the squad and when he is match fit it would definitely be a great option for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to have.
Here is what fans said following the news with many not too keen on the move, perhaps due to his lack of first team football in the last year or so.

A loan is not bad. A winner in the squad and great player for Greenwood to learn from, on his day he could tear the league up. But we all know it won’t happen

If @ManUtd can’t get Sancho, I don’t expect anything from this club. This club can’t do anything, not even winning trophy nor getting player. We are done!
