UEFA rules bar players transferring from their parent club from participating in the Champions League if their new club is involved in the European competition, but with that rule finally lifted, Manchester United may yet have a glimmer of hope they can finally land big star old target Gareth Bale.
And the club are willing to splash a whopping jaw dropping nine-figure sum, mooted to be around 100 million pounds to snap him up from Real Madrid.
On the back of the claim, as remarked by Spanish journalist and pundit Eduardo Inda, the bulk of Real Madrid dresser want the attacker gone.
Gareth Bale’s teammates are unhappy with the former Tottenham star and wish to see him leave the club, a shocker, which Inda claimed is the situation about the Welshman future, when he spoke to Spanish TV El Chiringuito.
To make matters worse, Bale’s relationship with Los Blancos fans has reportedly been fractured, and patching things up with people who have been the fabric of the club is unlikely to happen soon.
Real Madrid have since found themselves huddled up in difficult corner since Ronaldo’s departure, a blow they’re still dazed from.
Losing Bale could prove fatal at this crucial stage, but that will definitely be United’s gain who have tried to pull all stops to land him since he sailed to the Spanish capital in 2013.
Moots about the move is said to happen around the summer of next year.
