Manchester United and Manchester City will go into battle with each other this summer, with both clubs looking to secure a deal for Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, according to The Sun, via Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb.
It is thought that the Wales international will turn down a new deal in the Spanish capital as he looks to try and force a move back to the Premier League, much to the delight of the English football supporters here in the Transfer Tavern.
One Manchester City fan is overjoyed and he thinks that Pep Guardiola’s summer arrival will give his team the edge when it comes to securing players of Bale’s ilk.
It would be a sensational move wherever the 26-year-old should go and it is likely that Madrid would want to recoup as much of the £80 million that they originally paid as possible.
Our knowledgeable landlord is working on a busy bar and he thinks that Bale is destined to return to the Premier League at some point in his career, although he does question whether or not it will definitely be this year or not.
Manchester United and Manchester City fans, would you welcome Bale to the club? Who would make way for him to play in the team?
