The Times: Manchester United can break the deadlock between Bale and Real Madrid

Gareth Bale is open to a return to the Premier League, reports The Times. According to the British quality newspaper, Manchester United is in the market for the Real Madrid aria from Wales. Bale exchanged Tottenham Hotspur for Real Madrid in 2013 and became the very first player to receive a transfer fee of one hundred million euros. The left leg won four Champions Leagues and two national titles with Real Madrid, but there has never been a happy marriage. Although Bale is still tied up until 2022, both parties are in the process of a departure arrangement, according to Spanish media reports.
This opens doors for Manchester United: The Mancunians are still looking for a wing attacker and first choice Jadon Sancho does not seem feasible. According to The Times, the 31-year-old Welshman does have an ear for a rent transfer to Old Trafford. Manchester United would still have to negotiate with Real Madrid.
Bale‘s salary is undoubtedly one of the items on the agenda. Wales’ 83-fold international is reportedly earning EUR 660 000 a week: Real Madrid is keen to remove part of that amount from the payroll.
