According to a recent report by the Sun, a no deal Brexit could see Gareth Bale move from Real Madrid to Manchester United next summer as his future at the Spanish capital would be thrown in doubt. ESPN FC has also stated that if the United Kingdom fails to come to an agreement with the European Union before leaving, then it could mean that Bale’s right to work abroad could be under significant jeopardy. Hence, the Welsh international might have no other option than to make a sensational return back to the Premier League with Man United being tipped as a likely destination for the Cardiff-born talent.
However, in a recent interview with ESPN, Jesus Ignacio Navas, a representative for Legal Experts Navas & Cusi Abogados Madrid, addressed the situation and said, “The foreign player would need to get permission from the Spanish government in order to live and work in Spain,”
Put simply, they would need to get a license to work in Spain.
“That is not currently not easy to get as many people want to come here to live.
“But we have a law that if you buy a house for half a million euro, or you have a ‘special’ job, it is easier.”
So it turns out that Bale’s massive wealth could save him from the possibility of returning to England. However, the Welshman has had his fair share of struggles at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium during the course of this campaign. He has failed to fill the void left by Ronaldo’s departure after the Portuguese superstar decided to make a switch to Juventus last summer.
Moreover, recent injuries have hampered Bale’s progress at the Spanish capital and he is currently looking like a shadow of his former self. Having said that, if the opportunity arises, Man United would be foolish if they do not attempt to sign a player of Bale’s quality during the summer transfer window. Bale is blessed with incredible pace and can score goals on a consistent basis when he is playing with confidence.
He is also a proven match-winner as evidenced by his quick-fire brace in last season’s UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool when the Welsh winger came off the bench to completely change the outcome of the final. The 29-year-old has made 23 appearances for Los Blancos this term, registering 10 goals while providing 5 assists across multiple competitions.
Bale is also highly versatile and can operate anywhere across the frontline. He will be a blockbuster acquisition for Man United if they can somehow pull off a deal to bring him to the Theatre of Dreams next summer.
