The Daily Mail have managed to put frowns on the faces of Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern by claiming that the club will not be able to land Gareth Bale at any price.
The Real Madrid winger has been increasingly berated by fans since last season, and after a 0-0 draw in the Spanish club’s opening game of the La Liga season, fans are once again using Bale as a scapegoat, but the player has the full backing of president Florentino Perez and manager Rafa Benitez, so much so that Manchester United have been told he is not for sale at all.
As one of our punters notes over a couple of beers with our landlord, that is not something that United will want to hear, after missing out on so many players this summer, but it seems that another one is set to be added to the list.
A group of United fans over by the pool table here in the Transfer Tavern feel the club would never be able to land Bale, but admit they are all dreaming of seeing the Welsh wizard fly down the wing at Old Trafford!
Manchester United fans….. Do you think that Bale will leave Madrid any time soon? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
