Even before Gareth Bale joined Real Madrid, the Welshman was strongly linked with a move to Manchester United.
Though hope of seeing the 26-year old arrive at Old Trafford has always remained among our local Red Devils, even the most ardent of fans have been disappointed following reports from Marca (via the Sun.)
It is believed that the world’s most expensive footballer is close to agreeing a bumper new deal in the Spanish capital, after putting his frustrating second season behind him.
This season, the former Tottenham star has emerged as one of the key players, constantly stepping up to big occasion in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Having scored 20 goals in just 29 games this season, the Welsh international talisman is emerging as a vital part of the Los Blancos set up.
Will we ever see Gareth Bale in the Premier League again? To be fair, why would you ever want to leave Real Madrid?
