Premier League giants Manchester United have decided against the idea of signing Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale when the transfer market reopens in the New Year.
This is according to the publication from the stables of popular media outlet FourFourTwo.
It was revealed that Manchester United won’t make a move for the Welsh national team star mainly because of his injury record.
Bale came close to leaving Real Madrid in the summer only for club president Florentino Perez to pull the plug on the deal at the last minute.
The former Southampton player would have joined Chinese Super League (CSL) outfit Jiangsu Suning if not for the Real Madrid president.

Gareth Bale was told by club manager Zinedine Zidane that he’s not in his plans.
He was also offered to Manchester United on a season-long loan deal in the summer according to the aforementioned report.
The Welsh winger has been able to recover from the drama surrounding his possible exit in the summer and has been in the Real Madrid squad whenever he’s fit.
He joined Real Madrid from North London outfit Tottenham Hotspur during the summer of 2013 for a then world-record fee of around £85.3m and he went on to win the Champions League in his first season at the club.
