Manchester United are reportedly encouraging Gareth Bale to go public about his desire to leave Real Madrid this summer.
This whole plan is detailed in a recent report from Don Balon citing TV show El Chiringuito, who claim the Reds are not willing to pay more than £70 million for Bale, so have told him to stamp his feet and kick a tantrum until Madrid let go.
There is a reason for caution, though.
The Wales international seems like an ideal signing to improve United’s attack, but his injury problems in the past true a risk factor into the mix.
Still, the report states Los Blancos want much more for Bale — approximately £132 million — so United can live and hope their plan works.
The last thing Real Madrid’s newly appointed coach, Julen Lopetegui, wants now is dressing room unrest. La Liga’s biggest club will have no other choice if Bale plays his cards right.
If United can get Bale, a month after his Champions League final-winning brace, for £70 million, it should be seen as one of the buys of the summer. Make no mistake about that…
Bale shone during his time at Tottenham in the Premier League and could benefit from having more of a key role in this United side.
Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku , nd Bale would be some attack.
