Now perhaps it’s ridiculously early to be mulling over potential Manchester United signings for next summer when the 2015/16 summer window hasn’t even shut as yet but our resident Red Devils can’t help letting their minds wander somewhat.
With Cristiano Ronaldo having been linked with countless homecomings to Old Trafford in the press over the last couple of seasons, one man who our resident United fans think could be more of a realistic signing next summer could be a team-mate of Ronaldo’s at Real Madrid in Gareth Bale.
Of course, all will depend on how the Welsh international fares in La Liga and the Champions League this season but with Los Blancos having failed to win any silverware last term while watching old foes Barcelona land the treble in the process, it was Bale who was sometimes unfairly made a scapegoat.
Real Madrid fans are naturally demanding given the fact they’re often deemed the world’s biggest club and by their standards, even one bad performance in the famous white shirt can spell disaster.
When you consider Gareth Bale’s world record breaking £85.3 million transfer fee, when he doesn’t perform, the Real Madrid boo boys simply can’t resist poking a jibe or too in the former Tottenham man’s direction.
If that kind of scenario plays out again this season, perhaps Bale will give up on his Real Madrid dream sooner than he would’ve liked but at this stage, all of this is presumptuous of course.
Nevertheless, being the new big money spending power they’ve become to be under Ed Woodward, we’ve taken this moment to devise a dream Manchester United starting eleven with Gareth Bale metaphorically instilled.
