Real Madrid look set to offload Man United target Gareth Bale in order to make way for 18-year-old Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe, according to the Daily Record.
As reported by the Daily Record, Los Blancos have been tracking the 27-goal Monaco man since he was 14, with Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane eager to include the Frenchman, who helped his side reach the Champions League semi-final last season, in his forward line for next season.
If Real were to complete the signing of Mbappe, who has also attracted interest from Arsenal and PSG, the Spanish giants would then be willing to let former Tottenham star Bale leave the Bernabeu, with Old Trafford being one of the winger’s most likely destinations, reports the Daily Record.
Both Mourinho and United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, as per the Daily Record, are eager to bring Bale back to the Premier League, however the move hinges on the future of current Madrid captain Cristiano Ronaldo, after the winger’s apparent desire to leave the Spanish capital this summer.
Should Mbappe and Bale make their moves to Madrid and United respectively, it’s definitely going to be interesting as to which club gets the most out of their investment.
