Real Madrid’s world-record signing Gareth Bale is having to put up with the boos and the criticism of the Spanish fans of late, and were United to swoop in at the end of the season it would be highly tempting for the 25-year-old to return to the Premiership.
The Daily Mirror is reporting today that the Welsh international is willing to give it one more year in Spain in the hope of changing the fans minds about him, but given the fact he has scored just one goal in his last nine games it is not looking as if it will happen anytime soon.
Bale has always been open to a move to Old Trafford and should United approach Madrid with an offer in line with what they paid to Tottenham, the Spanish giants would probably let him leave with no hard feelings.
If you needed proof that the fans were fed up with Bale, all you need to do is watch last Tuesday’s Champions League match against Schalke where Bale was booed every time he touched the ball.
Another deciding factor in a move back to the U.K. is the fact Bale wants his two-year-old daughter to go to school back home and is also planning his future with long-time girlfriend Emma.
United tried to sign Bale while he was at Spurs, but lost out to Madrid, and now with the possibility of losing goalkeeper David De Gea to Los Blanco’s and the sale of Angel Di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain, the Red Devils will have plenty of options available come the end of the season if they are serious about Bale.
