Manchester United seem to get linked with a move for Gareth Bale every single transfer window and this time around is no different. However, this summer the Welshman has made it no secret that he needs to be playing first-team football next season and with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real Madrid exit he could be getting that in Madrid this season.
So United are desperate to sign Bale but Bale won't leave unless Madrid tell him he's not replacing Ronaldo. And that's our summer strategy is it? Waiting on a player who's snubbed us before and doesn't really want to come anyway….#mufc

Gareth Bale left Tottenham Hotspur back in summer 2013 for Real Madrid and since then he’s won the Champions League four times, La Liga once and the Copa Del Rey once, making him one of the world’s most decorated players today. Despite his huge trophy cabinet, Los Blancos are yet to see the best of Bale as injuries have stopped him from truly going on to show the world what he can do at the Bernabeu.
A move away from Madrid would probably be the best move for Gareth Bale this summer but at the age of 29, he would have to make the right switch. With a Transfermarkt valuation of £89 million, it’s not like any club can sign the Welshman but Manchester United are definitely one of those who have the financial muscle to bring in Bale. It will be an interesting summer to see whether Bale moves or stays put but either way, you can guarantee that Bale will impress fans wherever he’s playing his football next season.
You can read the United fans’ Bale verdict here:
You forget to add. “Pretend to show interest in Bale” to make it look like the club is competing.

Ok if Bale is finished then I say increase our budget for Alex Sandro and Willian since more funds can be freed. At this stage Any of them will give the squad a lift

Wouldn't take him. Great player but injury prone last 2 seasons. Perisic all day long for me.

Bale is injury prone imagine but he is better than our front three

Going all out to sign Bale is a hallmark of classlessness from United, he turned down the club more than once in the past

I don’t see anymore signings at this rate

Just from these tweets, you can see that the fans aren’t overly keen on bringing Bale to Old Trafford.
