Manchester United have been given the go-ahead to move for Real Madrid star Gareth Bale, with Julen Lopetegui giving the player the green light to leave Los Blancos this summer.

Don Balon claim the Welsh star is keen to leave the Spanish capital this summer.

The Spanish news outlet are also reporting that United remain on the radar, with the Mirror reporting recently that the player is being valued at £100 million, a price the Reds are able to afford.

Bale may have played a bit part role for Real Madrid this season, but he was still key to Madrid’s success, going the distance to score a match-winning brace in the Champions League final against Liverpool. 

However, the latest from Don Balon would suggest both Bale and Madrid want the player out of the club, so it should be easier than initially thought to get a deal over the line.

That’s not to say I believe the story because I don’t. Zinedine Zidane may not have fancied him, but this is a player worthy of being listed among the top performers in world football. I don’t get it.

Bring him to United by all means. We’ll make better use of him… or would we?
