Manchester United still have hope of clinching transfer of £100million-rated attacker

Manchester United could still be in the running to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid with the midfielder’s future in Spain still very much up in the air.

According to ESPN writer Dermot Corrigan, Bale’s current situation is not yet from resolved following his comments after Madrid’s Champions League final victory in May, as he told BT Sport in his post-match interview in the video below.

Corrigan tweeted this morning:

The Daily Mirror recently stated that Real would demand at least £100 million for the Welshman, who has spent the last 5 years at the Bernabeu. During that time he has made 126 appearances for Los Blancos and scored an impressive 70 goals, despite failing to nail down a place in Zidane’s starting XI during the Frenchman’s tenure as manager.

With Lopetegui now at the helm and former main man at the club Cristiano Ronaldo now with Juventus in Serie A, should Bale stay he could well find himself as the focal point in the Spaniard’s plans.

Gareth Bale’s future remains in the balance

However, no assurances have been given yet and the 29-year-old winger’s strong words in the wake of Madrid’s latest European success should still give Manchester United hope of securing a deal in the coming weeks.

It has recently been claimed by Spanish outlet Don Balon that Bale is ‘seduced’ by the prospect of a move to United to become a focal point of Jose Mourinho’s side.
