Metro have Manchester United fans looking more than shocked here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that Gareth Bale could well be on his way to Old Trafford – in exchange for Angel Di Maria.
Less than half a season after selling Di Maria to United, Real Madrid are trying to get the Argentine back and it seems that in order to do this, they will be offering Welsh international Bale to United.
Bale is worth around £90 million and it seems that Real might also want a fair bit of cash from United along with Di Maria.
However, as our regulars note, we think that United will quote an increased fee for Di Maria given his impact made at Old Trafford.
Given how desperate Real Madrid seem to be to get their Argentine star back, we think that these negotiations could go on for a while yet.
That is if United are even willing to entertain the notion of getting rid of one of their best players so soon!
Manchester United fans. Is this utterly ludicrous? Would you consider getting rid of Di Maria after he has been so good for you? Let us know your thoughts below.
