The Wales international has not been at his best this season, and attracted some criticism this week after Real’s 2-1 loss to Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.

Still, Bale will not come cheap this summer as Premier League giants look to bring him back to England, where he previously shone as one of the best players in the league with Tottenham Hotspur.

The 25-year-old’s form at White Hart Lane saw him become the most expensive player of all time as he made the move to the Bernabeu last season, but it now looks as though he could quit after just two seasons.

Still, Real will only sell Bale to United or Chelsea if the right offer comes along, with the Spanish giants holding out for £80m, according to The Sun.
