Man United should launch ambitious swoop for Gareth Bale

Man United should launch ambitious swoop for Gareth Bale

Manchester United have been simply sensational under the guidance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as they continue to close the gap in the race for a top four place.

The Red Devils will now be looking to move into the Champions League places after their inspired run of form, and they’re still in with a chance of doing well in this year’s competition.

Indeed, United are still a long way off from establish themselves as one of Europe’s elite once again, but big moves on the transfer market from Ed Woodward would certainly make a difference.

Woodward’s best signing over the past eight years has to be David De Gea. The Spaniard has established himself as arguably the world’s best goalkeeper since making the move from Atletico Madrid for a bargain price of £18.9 million. He has more than quadrupled that price during his time at Old Trafford as their standout performer and will no doubt go down as one of the best signings that the club has ever made.

One player who could be in line for a move to the Premier League one way or another is Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.

Interestingly, ESPN reports that if the UK goes for a “no deal” Brexit, Bale’s career at Los Blancos is under threat. The 29-year-old, along with 800,000 Brits, “could potentially lose their right to work where they are living”.

The attacker will be fearing for his future, as the crushing defeat, which saw 118 Tories turn against Teresa May, is the worst since the advent of full democracy and suggests she will never win enough support for her strategy.

Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett said he and his client “would wait and see what happens,”.

Nevertheless, the Red Devils should look at signing Bale at some point in the future, regardless of the circumstances.

Of course, there’s no doubt that the 29-year-old is one of the best attackers in the whole of world football, and he has already achieved so many great things in his career, which includes lifting the Champions League four times.

Manchester United are currently using Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as their front three, with Lingard playing in the false 9 position. So, it would make more sense for United to move in for an attacker who has shown that he can deliver at the pinnacle of the attack, which is exactly what Bale has done

Another bonus for the Red Devils is the fact that the Welshman broke the hearts of many Liverpool fans during the Champions League final last year by scoring two, so a move to the Reds’ bitter rivals would add insult to injury.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already laid down the foundations for the Reds Devils to build on at Old Trafford but you can’t help but think that they’re one more big signing away from establishing themselves back among Europe’s elite.

Therefore, making a move for Bale would take the Manchester club to the next level and would provide them with a similar figure to Ronaldo during Sir Alex Ferguson’s days. He has an incredible finishing ability, power, pace and skill, which could make United’s attack unstoppable when paired with the likes of Rashford, Paul Pogba and Martial.
