Premier League club Manchester United have turned down the opportunity to sign embattled Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale this summer.
This is according to the publication from the stables of the London Evening Standard which revealed that Manchester United have passed up the opportunity to sign the former Tottenham Hotspur hitman.
Manchester United are long-term admirers of Bale who’s surplus to requirements at Real Madrid after six seasons at the club.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane confirmed that the player is not in his plan at the weekend.
According to him, Gareth Bale will leave Real Madrid for a new club this summer despite the fact that he still has three years left on his current deal.
Bale became a Real Madrid player in the summer of 2013 when he joined the Los Merengues from Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur for a then world-record fee of £85.3m.
He held that record for three years before Paul Pogba moved from Juventus to Manchester United for £89m during the summer transfer window in 2016.
Gareth Bale has scored more than 100 goals for Real Madrid since his move to the club six years ago.
The Welsh international forward won four Champions League titles during that period.
