Real Madrid cruelly parted ways with Rafael Benitez yesterday evening, after the Spaniard had been in the Bernabeu hot seat for less than six months. That has fuelled the fire regarding the future of Gareth Bale, with a whole host of British newspapers saying he could be on his way to Manchester United.
The Mirror, Times and the Daily Mail all say that Manchester United are ready to test Real Madrid’s resolve, as Louis van Gaal prepares a huge £75million+ bid to bring the Welsh Wizard to Old Trafford.
Bale, 26, had a stunning debut season in Spain, and although he has been poor at times this term, he is still one of the best players in the world. It would be superb for the Premier League if Manchester United could get this deal done, and it just feels like Gareth Bale is just destined for the Theatre of Dreams.
