Real Madrid have already lost Cristiano Ronaldo this summer to Juventus and reports now claim that Manchester United are keen to take Gareth Bale away from the Santiago Bernabeu too.
Despite winning the Champions League this year, Los Blancos are facing a summer of disruption after Ronaldo’s move to Juventus was confirmed by the Italian giants this week.
The La Liga giants have announced Julen Lopetegui as Zinedine Zidane’s replacement earlier this summer and with so many changes in one summer, there is potential for unrest in the group, and according to Manchester Evening News, the Reds are still eager to snap up Bale and are said to be ‘advancing’ in talks.
That will be a concern for Madrid fans, as losing Bale at this stage would mean Lopetegui needs a complete overhaul of his attack after seeing two superstars leave during the same summer.
However, according to Spanish football writer Guillem Balague, there’s still a long way to go before Bale even considers an exit as he has reveals in a tweet.
Would it be because the tournament has got no England?? Bale has to meet Lopetegui and his agent meet Madrid. He has taken no decision and Madrid want him to stay https://t.co/eCro45ayV6

United have been trying to sign Bale for years and it looks like they’re still chancing their arm for the former Tottenham ace.
After his match-winning brace spoiled Liverpool’s party in Kiev, I’d take Bale with open arms.
