Spanish outlet El Confidential has released a statement confirming Manchester United’s interests in Welshman Gareth Bale. The Spanish newspaper on Thursday said United have officially thrown a bid on the table for the Real Madrid forward.
After a series of ups and downs in the start of the season in the La Liga which was attributed to injuries, the Welsh star can raise his shoulders high following his jaw-breaking performance in the Champions League final last weekend.
Bale proved once again he could be relied upon repeating his genius performance at the FIFA Club World Cup in the UEFA final against Liverpool scoring twice against the Merseyside club and leading Los Blancos to their third consecutive European League title.
However, after the match the 29-year-old revealed he wants to leave the Spanish club. The star confirmed he’s frustrated over his limited game time in Real Madrid.
According to El Confidential, United have made an initial offer to sign him.They have also prepared to make Bale the highest earning player in the Premier League, claimed El Confidential.
Also, football platform 101greatgoals.com noted that United are willing to pay Bale €35 million a year as wages. El Confidential pointed out that Bale is valued around €150 million, a bid upped from €120 million by club president Florentino Perez.
The Iberian Daily also stated that Bayern Munich and Tottenham are in the race for the goalscoring machine and disclosed that the likelihood of Bale moving to Munich is high due to his crave for privacy, an element England cannot afford.
