Not Perisic – Man United transfer target’s club already negotiating

By Dave Marshall

Manchester United’s hope of landing Real Madrid forward, Gareth Bale has hit yet another snag as the European champions will only consider selling him to their English counterparts if they include David de Gea in the deal.

United have been linked to signing Bale for £90m ever since rumours started that he could be sacrificed in favour of Monaco sensation, Kylian Mbappe. The Champions League holders have been linked to the 18-year-old striker who was majestic for the principality club last season, scoring 26 goals and creating a further 14 in his first full season as a full professional.

United and Chelsea are rumoured to be interested in a move for Bale, who has not been at his imperious best in the past two years. Madrid want De Gea to be included in any deal that will take the former Tottenham man back to England, according to Don Balon.

The 26 year old Spanish No. 1 goalkeeper has been linked to a return to the Spanish capital and was agonisingly close to joining Real, though a deal couldn’t be reached as a result of paper work gaffe on deadline day August 2015. Jose Mourinho has always stated his admiration for the former Atletico man, and has refused to entertain any offers for the 26-year-old shotstopper.

Bale lost his place to Isco towards the end of last season due to injury worries and is no longer an indispensable member of the first team. This latest twist by Real Madrid may see that United effectively end the pursuit of the wideman, who may be keen to return back to England, as his Spanish adventure looks to be on a downward spiral.

Bale will be a quality addition to the United squad, as his pace and technical abilities will be of great asset to the team and in particular, Romelu Lukaku.

He is a classy winger adept at playing anywhere across the front three, and is known for his pace, finishing and set piece prowess. He joined Real Madrid for a then world record £86m back in 2013, and has won the La Liga once, the Copa del Rey and three Champions League titles.

    Madrid has started the dirty trick once again by offering under performing and injury prone Bale in exchange of De Gea. De Gea should not be allowed to leave United at any cost. United will found the left winger from other team at a relatively cheaper price.
    United should only consider transfer of Ronaldo in exchange of De Gea if at all required.
    United’s stance on Perisic transfer is also not acceptable. Perisic could have been signed much earlier without any problem.
