Premier League sides Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have been put on alert to the possible availability of Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale for transfer some weeks before the start of the winter transfer window.
His agent spoke to Italian news outlet Tuttosport via Tribalfootball about the Welsh international star.
When asked about a possible move away from the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Gareth Bale’s agent revealed that anything can happen during the transfer window.
Jonathan Barrett was responding to the question about his client following former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo in swapping the Spanish La Liga for the Italian Serie A.
Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo ended a nine-year spell at Real Madrid in the summer after he signed for Italian Serie A champions Juventus.
The 33-year-old had emerged as the club’s leading goalscorer before his Real Madrid career came to an end.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner penned a four-year deal with Juventus and was subsequently handed the iconic no. 7 jersey at the Juventus Stadium.
Since then, media reports have claimed that several stars are keen to follow in the footsteps of Ronaldo.
For now, Gareth Bale is expected to spearhead his side’s push for a fourth successive Champions League title in the absence of Ronaldo.
