Man Utd are reportedly on the hunt for a major signing, and according to the Manchester Evening News, Gareth Bale is the man that they want. Talks are, apparently, at an advanced stage, and that suggests that a deal could be forthcoming.
Of course, Bale is one of Europe’s best-known players. He’s Wales’ star man, and even though his time in Spain hasn’t been problem-free, the 28-year-old has more than held his own amongst some of the best players in the world.
However, despite his obvious quality, a move for Bale should not be without concern. The Welshman’s injury record speaks for itself, whilst his age is also a problem. Not to mention, who knows whether he’d be able to adapt back to life in La Liga.
Perhaps, then, it would make sense for Man Utd to instead seek an alternative option. They’re clearly on the hunt for the Premier League title, and a new, talented attacker could help them get there. However, perhaps Bale isn’t the man they need.
Instead, 1 of these 2 stars may be a better choice…
