Manchester United in the Transfer Tavern are growing increasingly excited ahead of a potential mammoth addition, with the latest reports stating a club hero could help the club land a spectacular deal.
Manchester United have held long interest in the player, ever since his days at Tottenham Hotspur, with former manager’s Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes both failing in swoops for the world-class winger.
Bale has struggled to win over the media and sections of the supporters in the Spanish capital, which has continuously led to rumours that he could be prepared to pack up his life in Spain and return to Premier League football.
The recent sacking of Rafael Benitez at the Santiago Bernabeu may have changed the situation, with United ready to make a £75m swoop for the Welsh international.
Giggs, assistant manager at Manchester United at the likely successor to Louis Van Gaal, could prove decisive in making the transfer a reality.
Our landlord believes United still have a stern task ahead of them though, stating that there is no chance Real Madrid would be prepared to lose Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo within the same calendar year.
Will Gareth Bale return to the Premier League in January? Let us know in the comments below!
