Man United ready to offer deal to sign £33.8million a year player – Report

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale celebrates his goal against Levante during their Spanish First Division soccer match at Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid

As per the latest reports going on in the media, Man United are not going to meet the asking price of Jadon Sancho and are now serious about signing Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.

According to an exclusive story covered by The Sun, the Red Devils will not meet Dortmund’s huge asking price of £108million to lure the England international and Solskjaer is not against bringing in a proven PL player like Bale.

Transfer: Deal close – Man Utd could seal £23m-£28m signing in days – Report

The renowned British source have mentioned that Man United are ready to offer a deal to sign the £33.8million-a-year player (£650,000-a-week). It is stated that the PL giants want to lure the 31-year-old, whose current contract will expire in 2022, on a one year loan and with the option to extend for a further year.

In that setup, the Welsh international would take a pay cut and both the Old Trafford club and Real Madrid would contribute to his wages.

Ideally, the Los Blancos would like to get rid of him on permanent basis this summer and The Sun claim that the Spanish champions want £18.5million from his sale.

Bale moved to the Bernabeu in 2013 and in his first season, he scored the decisive goals to win the Copa Del Rey vs Barcelona and the UEFA Champions League vs Atletico Madrid.

He also scored the decisive goal in 2018 in the CL final against Liverpool and was awarded with the Man of the Match prize. So, we know that the former Spurs star is a top quality player.

However, his injury record (Transfermarkt) is not good and last season, he did not play regular first team football under the management of Zinedine Zidane. Do you think Gareth Bale would be good short term fix for Man United?

  1. Gareth Bale pros and cons: Assuming no Sancho deal.

    Pros: Better than Douglas Costa & Ousmane Dembele, think that’s it.

    Cons: 31, injury prone, less than 30 games per season for the last 5 years, prefers collecting his inflated salary whilst reserving his energy for golf than competing to play football, confirmed Tottenham fan, turned United down on several occasions, loan salary £300k/wk (£15.6m) – anyone remember Alexis Sanchez?, to buy would cost £18m + £31.2m p.a.and no resale value AT ALL.

    Alternative:
    Moussa Dembele, proven goalscorer, perfect foil for Martial, Rashford and Greenwood, upgrade on the departing Ighalo, would be happy to double his salary (whilst still saving United £11m-£25m p.a. over Bale or £30k/wk after Ighalo’s departure in January), resale value would potentially double the £45m-£50m outlay.

    If United are not getting Sancho, wouldn’t it be sensible to buy Moussa Dembele, provide right wing insurance with Ismaila Sarr (£40m), secure left wing-back attacking prowess with Alex Telles (£18.5m), all for less than the cost of Sancho, whilst improving the squad noticeably.

    The inability of United to push Rojo & Smalling out, who can still contribute (Jones MUST STILL GO) and OGS’s confidence in Mengi, with Tuanzebe to also return, means we don’t have to prioritise CBs, but should do a deal early to get Upamecano for next summer.

  2. The united C.E.O said we can do things in the transfer market window that other clubs can only dream of. And now only united that lost a target to other club, only united move to sign great talent and think of walking out just because of price, only united that the board do not support the coach, only united that promise fans and fail them, this word have made it clear about united failure, why won.t the fans get fed up, the only thing that united can do to please their fans is to grant their wishes.

  3. I sincerely like united fans spirit, they are trying to assist their club to raise funds for sancho. What are the board doing to make it work.
