The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern want Jose Mourinho to work his magic once again this summer. The Portuguese has been able to tempt some of Europe’s best players to Old Trafford in recent years, and another this summer could help edge the Red Devils somewhat closer to the Premier League title.
It’s important, though, that he picks the correct targets, and our landlord thinks that a move for Gareth Bale, who is rated at £81 million by Transfer Markt, would be Man Utd’s biggest possible move.
Bale, of course, made headlines in the Champions League final for his stunning impact after arriving on the field from the bench. He bagged an unbelievable overhead kick goal for Real Madrid as they went on to win the European Cup, and that indicates the sort of impact he could have at Old Trafford.
A tremendously gifted attacking midfielder, Bale has endured a difficult spell over in Spain, but his quality has been clear for all to see. Lighting fast, brilliant technically, and with a fantastic shot to boot, Bale is truly one of Europe’s greatest players.
Injuries have been problematic over the last 18 months, but he looks to be past the worst of them, and a return to the Premier League could be the restart that he needs.
From Man Utd’s perspective, he’d be joining an attack alongside the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, and you’d expect that the trio would connect brilliantly and to devastating effect.
He won’t be cheap, of course, but if Mourinho wants immediate results, a move for someone like Bale would be their biggest and best in years.
