United tell Madrid to flog Bale elsewhere

United’s executive vice-chairman has discarded his long-held dream to see the 29-year-old in the famous red shirt as he backs Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s drive to recruit the best emerging domestic talent this summer.

The former Tottenham player faces an uncertain future at Real following Zidane’s return to the Bernabeu in March.

He wants to bring in Paul Pogba (£150m price has been set) as well, but will need to sell a host of players who are surplus to requirements.

Bale is considered to be one of those – but his enormous wages, which are believed to be in the region of £600,000-a-week – mean it will be near-impossible to find a club, other than United, willing to meet his personal demands, as well as pay a transfer fee.

Pogba is also wanted by Juventus. United have set a price of £150m. The price is more than what Real or Juventus can afford, especially if they do not want to break the FFP rules. United are not interested in any cash plus player deal making Pogba's departure this summer unlikely.

Buying Bale now would be insane, but would anyone take him on loan for the season?

----------------------
as a short term fix for next year yes, 1/4 of his wages and a fee of no more than 8-10mill, anything more than that they can feck, looks like that's what weve told them anyway

Why would we want an injured crock. Good for Madrid.

Karma is a beeyatch

Watched him the other day for Wales and he's starting to look a bit leggy to me..

He was poor in the last two games for Wales. Giggs put it down to being rusty due to lack of playing time. Could be a factor of course, but my gut feeling is that he has already past his peak, and will struggle in the PL if he were to return.

If Madrid want rid of Bale they're going to need to pay him at least £450k p/w for the next three years to supplement his salary at any club that takes a punt..

Similar scenario for us with Sanchez.

Except bale is still useful...Sanchez is shiiit

He'll become the 2019 (and beyond) version of Winston Bogarde.

He'll be as useful as Sanchez once he signs for us.

Have you watched him of late? I guess not. There is a reason Madrid wan't shot of him.

He seems to have declined rapidly. Would be a good player for someone, but not on his current wages. Madrid will have to thrash out some deal to move him on.

I very much suspect bale will not expect a similar wage if he moves on.

It will boil down to whether he wants to play football or golf. Some people do fall out of love of playing football at a young age though.

It will be very interesting what will happen. Obviously as a Welshman, I would like to see him playing regularly to see if he can rediscover some form. Even though he’s in decline, he is our best player when he performs.
