Manchester United placed as favourites to sign £86million star


According to reports, it has been claimed that Premier League giants Manchester United are favourites to land the services of Real Madrid star Gareth Bale

Despite playing a pivotal role in Real Madrid’s wonderful Champions League triumph last season, Bale has not enjoyed the best of relationships with the fans and the Welshman has been used as a scapegoat for the Spanish side’s recent failings on the pitch.

Due to the abuse he has received so far, it is widely believed that Bale will be looking to leave Madrid by facilitating a move back to England.

Not many clubs will be able to afford Bale but Manchester United are among those elite clubs who have the financial might to sign the winger and now according to reports, the Red Devils have emerged as the favourites to secure the services of the Welshman in the summer.

Betting firm Ladbrokes have placed priced Bale signing for United at 3/1, while the next contenders are Chelsea (6/1) and Spurs (16/1).

It has also been claimed that United could land Bale for a bargain price of around £65million and with the Red Devils looking likely to finish in the top four this season, the move could well come into fruition.
