Real Madrid stunned by Bale threatens!


REAL MADRID star Gareth Bale is reportedly threatening to join Manchester United if Zinedine Zidane fails to give him the chance to overcome his injury woes.

Express Sport understands Manchester United are willing to wait until next season to sign Bale, whose position at Real Madrid has grown in uncertainty in recent months.

The Wales international was limited to just 26 appearances last term, with hamstring and calf injuries derailing his campaign.

But, even though he regained his fitness in time for the Champions League final win over Juventus, Zinedine Zidane opted to play Isco instead.

With talk rife that Real will land Monaco superstar Kylian Mbappe, some reports have speculated Manchester United could yet sign Bale this transfer window.

The 28-year-old is likely to be the fall guy should Mbappe arrive.

And Spanish outlet Diario Gol claim he is threatening to join United THIS month if Zidane overlooks him at the start of the campaign.

He is supposedly calling for the chance to prove himself, knowing that regular game time can see him hit top form once again.


Bale is aware of United’s interest and knows that, if he makes the move to Old Trafford, then he would have the title of club talisman.

The Red Devils’ determination to sign Bale dates back to Sir Aex Ferguson’s time in charge.

The Scot himself admitted in 2011 that he tried to sign him when he was in the Southampton academy, but was never given permission by the Saints to speak with him.

“We tried to sign him from [Southampton] as a 17-year-old,” he said.

“But it never got to the stage of talking to the player. They didn’t accept our offer and I think they must have alerted Tottenham.

“I don’t know the full circumstances but, listen, you try to get the best deal you can. We made a good offer but they turned it down.”
