Long-Term Manchester United Target Gareth Bale Still Undecided On Real Madrid Future

Manchester United are monitoring the situation concerning Real Madrid's chase of Monaco's young sensation Kylian Mbappe, as this could open the door for them to bring Gareth Bale to Old Trafford much sooner than expected.

Multiple reports in Friday's newspapers claim United are set to make a new move for the Wales worldwide.

Bale, 28, endured a tough, injury-hit season in 2016-17, only turning out 19 times as Real won La Liga and starting the UEFA Champions League final-in which Los Blancos beat Juventus 4-1-on the bench.

Madrid have sold Alvaro Morata to Chelsea, but the idea that he'd be a direct replacement for the Spanish global and not start for the big matches, only playing whenever one of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale is rested, is nonsense.

"I want everyone who is here now to stay but anything can happen right up until 31 August", said the Frenchman.

Once again they are back with a bang this summer after comments from Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane that he can't promise Bale will still be at the Santiago Bernabeu next season.

Towards the end of last season, Gareth Bale looked like a forgotten man at Real Madrid.

"He's strong, he's a player I want to keep with me, but then we must consider the opinion of the club and the player".

The Welsh winger has been long rumored for a move to Manchester United but it has never been anything more than a rumor. "I hope everyone remains", said the coach. We're working on things and we'll see what happens.

The Welshman is aware that Mbappe's possible arrival could further alienate him at Real Madrid as Zidane will be under pressure to provide regular minutes to a player who could arrive at the Bernabeu for a world record transfer fee.

Manager Jose Mourinho alluded to this on the club's preseason tour of the United States, saying: "I always thought the problem is not what you pay for these kind of (top) players, I don't think the problem is what you pay for Pogba, I don't think the problem is going to pay insane for Neymar".
