Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have uttered more curse words this afternoon than we ever realised were in the English language, after hearing that their current crisis has scuppered their chances of landing a dream signing.
The Independent claims that the current situation at Manchester United, which sees Louis Van Gaal’s future cast in serious doubt and major concerns being made clear behind the scenes, has put Gareth Bale off a move to Old Trafford.
Real Madrid’s reluctance to sell the Welsh wizard is also problematic but Bale’s disinterest hands a major dent to United’s plans, which were handed a boost last summer as the Welshman seriously considered an offer made by United.
With Van Gaal’s future in doubt though, and serious concerns about the direction in which the team is heading, Bale doesn’t want to move to a team that has more problems than he faces in Real Madrid.
Our landlord believes United never did really have a chance of landing Bale as the Spanish giants never wanted to sell and hopes this is a wake up call to all the dreaming fans.
United fans, did you ever have a chance of landing Gareth Bale? Let us know in the comments below!
