Though it has been a good summer for the Red Devils in the Transfer Tavern, it could be about to get even better…
Recent quotes from Jose Mourinho have hinted at having an interest in Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, and his arrival is certainly a move that would generate a lot of excitement in the Transfer Tavern.
Indeed, though the Welshman has had his injury troubles in recent months, he is amongst some of the best players in Europe, and a move would give the Red Devils a real advantage heading into the new season.
In fact, Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp reckons that a move for Bale could be the missing piece for the club, even going as far as to suggest that Man Utd would be favourites for the title if they land him.
Questioned on the signing, Redknapp said: “If it did (happen) I think you should just give Manchester United the trophy now…He would rip the Premier League apart if he came here”.
High praise for Bale indeed, but it’s hard to argue with his points. After all, the Welshman has been a huge success in Spain if you look at the trophies he has won.
It’s easy to forget how good Bale is when he is having to compete with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, among others, but on his day there is simply nobody better in his role.
What’s more, as a natural winger, the passing and driving runs that he provides will make life so easy for new signing Romelu Lukaku, with our landlord touting the pair as a match made in heaven.
Still, a move remains some way off, but if he does become available, Bale in Man Utd colours would be sensational.
