Manchester United fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are rushing over to the bar to see the news from Metro – with the publication claiming that the Red Devils are on the verge of completing a deal for Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale.
It is no secret that the former Tottenham Hotspur winger has endured a mixed time during his time in Spain, with him often being made a scapegoat by supporters of the La Liga outfit.
As our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern quips, the club have already added an exciting talent in the form of Dutch winger Memphis Depay, but if they could pull off the signing of Gareth Bale as well, it would undoubtedly put them as hot favourites for the Premier League title next season.
