In a recent report, the Daily Star has stated that Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale is on Manchester United’s radar as the Red Devils have struggled to land their number one summer target, Borrusia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho this summer. As per the sources close to the club, Man United will now focus on recruiting the Madrid outcast, who was at the receiving end of another difficult season at the Spanish capital recently (via The Daily Star).
Bale’s Underwhelming Form At The Bernabeu Recently
Bale is currently surplus to the requirements at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium as he has fallen out of favour with Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane over the past year. The Welsh wing wizard only made 20 appearances for the Spanish champions last season and got three goals and two assists to his name on all fronts.
The former Tottenham Hotspur speedster struggled to find consistency and was mostly a frustrated figure in Zidane’s squad after he averaged 2.1 shots, 0.8 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per match in the 2019-20 La Liga campaign. At least Bale took care of the ball relatively well when distributing possession in the final third as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 79.1% in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).
The 31-year-old’s career is going nowhere at Madrid as he has been a subject of multiple injuries, so it’s high time that he sealed a move to a foreign club in search of more first-team football in the coming seasons. Los Blancos also need to ship him out as soon as possible so that they can use the money generated from his sale to make some incoming transfers in the future.
What Does The Welsh Wide Player Bring To The Table?
Bale has got blistering pace in his locker, which he can use to get to the byline with ease and tends to come alive when left isolated in a 1v1 situation with his marker. However, his goals have dried up at the Spanish capital, which has significantly lowered his worth in European football.
The Welshman has to ensure he gets to experience regular playing minutes in the upcoming campaign if he is serious about reigniting his career at the highest level. He has overstayed his welcome at the Bernabeu but could still play an integral role for a club like Man United in the twilight years of his playing career.
Why Los Blancos Need To Cut Bale Loose This Summer
Zidane has to figure out a way to ship Bale out of the club before the transfer window comes to a halt next month. The Madrid giants have already got Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, Eden Hazard, Isco and Marco Asensio as their attacking options, so they do not need to retain an unhappy player like Bale, who has been nothing but a disruption to the chemistry of their squad.
