A Gareth Bale transfer looks imminent, according to Zinedine Zidane himself, and it seems most Manchester United fans would still take him at their club.
As quoted in the tweet below from Onda Cero journalist Edu Pidal, Zidane has more or less confirmed Bale is closing in on a move to a new club and that he hopes the deal can be done imminently.
ZIDANE: “Bale no ha jugado porque el club está tratando su salida. Ojalá sea inminente, si es mañana mejor. El club está tramitando todo con el club donde va a jugar”@OndaCero_es @ElTransistorOC pic.twitter.com/2MPSw66Pbt

This seems a tad disrespectful to a player who played a key role in Real’s recent dominance in the Champions League, particularly with his two-goal cameo against Liverpool in the 2018 final.
It seems Man Utd fans still rate the Wales international highly, as many have now taken to Twitter in the wake of this news to urge their club to swoop for his signature.

The Daily Mirror linked Bale with the Red Devils on loan earlier this summer, though this never materialised, and it remains to be seen if there’s still time for something to be done on this.
One imagines United would face plenty of competition for a player of the 30-year-old’s quality, but loads of MUFC supporters are now eager to see Ed Woodward and co. pull something out of the hat late on…
United need to pull their finger out now. Woodward this is your last chance buddy. Bale is a fantastic player would improve our side and Real want rid so you won’t have to delay like you have with every deal this summer. Sign Bale then go on with other business #bale #ManUtd

United need to snatch Bale ASAP

I would risk Bale on a one year loan.
At worst, he is not match fit for the majority of games and only has a few good moments
At best, he can turn back the clock and tear apart the league. Guy can make top 4 a breeze.
Either way, Daniel James will get a great mentor

Can we have Gareth Bale to United? That'll be a massssive upgrade man. Now that his status is all but clear with Zizou.

I'll take Bale at United. I'm sure he's angry & ready to prove a point. There's no doubt about quality. Only worry is injury. https://t.co/BZQKWxvzaw

I would take Bale at United tbh. Risk with injuries but still a massive statement of intent and upgrade to the squad.
