Over the last few years, Man Utd have been intent on signing some of Europe’s best and brightest talents. From Anthony Martial to Paul Pogba to Romelu Lukaku last summer, the Old Trafford faithful have been able to see some of Europe’s best turn out for their club.
However, so far, this summer has been decidedly less exciting. Man Utd have prioritised smaller names that can fit in important positions for the club, with Fred, Lee Grant and Diogo Dalot moving to Old Trafford thus far.
Clearly, then, they’re still missing a flagship name, but according to the Manchester Evening News, they could get it in the form of Gareth Bale. Talks between the Red Devils regarding a move are apparently at an advanced stage, and that has, unsurprisingly, gone down very well on Twitter.
Many Man Utd fans have taken to the platform to discuss the move, and it’s fair to say that a lot of them would love to see it happen. They’re touting him as the sort of player they neede next season.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
If we got Bale, Maguire and Sandro I’d be so happy #mufc

Bale to United? Yes, please. We need a big transfer like this to regain some positivity amongst the fans, which we are understandably lacking tbh, before the next season. #MUFC

I'll excuse missing out on Willian to Barcelona if it means we go in for Bale #MUFC

Modric & Bale?? As if we’re going to get them two. Be great if we did but seriously? #mufc

Can’t help but get excited hearing the news about #MUFC advancing talks for Gareth Bale.
This should have happened years ago but I’ll take it now!
