Gareth Bale, the 28-year old winger from Wales, is reportedly being offered to Manchester United for £89m. The ex-Tottenham Hotspur man moved to Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 for a then world-record fee of £85.3 million. After spending four colourful but injury-blighted years at the club, it seems Real Madrid president wants to move on the Welsh speedster.

Bale, a Southampton academy product moved to Tottenham as a left-back with a flair for attacking play. He rose to prominence early after being named the Football League Young Player of The Year in 2007, at the age of 17. His free-kick prowess made him a specialist very early in his career.

Bale’s move to Tottenham, saw him develop from an average left-back to the most promising winger in the English Premier League. His exploits in the Premier league in 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons saw him become a feared player in England.

The English league known for its pace and physicality struggled to keep up with Bale as the Welshman went on to become the PFA Player’s Player of the Year in the 2012-13 season. He also won the Football Writer’s Association Player of the Year and the PFA Young Player of the Year. He became the only second player ever at that time to win all three awards in the same season after Cristiano Ronaldo.

Gareth Bale went on to finish the season with 26 goals and 15 assists and following huge interest from Real over the summer, completed a move to the Spanish capital side for a then world-record fee.

In his four seasons at the club Bale has gone on to make 159 appearances scoring 70 goals and setting up 55 assists. He has also won the Spanish league and three Champions League trophies with the Los Blancos.

However, his Real career has been set back several times with injuries and Bale has never been able to get a long string of games for the club, testing the patience of both fans and the Real management. Although he has on several occasions said he wants to stay at Real Madrid, it might no longer be in his hand, with his latest injury being the final straw to Perez’s patience.

If Bale were to move, of the many suitors, one is likely to be Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United. The Red Devils were in the market for a winger and having Bale back in the league he thrived in, with Jose’s United, will propose a daunting prospect for the opposition.

Bale will complete the team consisting the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Paul Pogba and it would be dream come true for United fans to see a team of such raw pace and power rain in goals at Old Trafford. All this, of course, will only happen given a move is made and Bale manages to stay fit to play for the Red Devils.
