Manchester United offered chance to sign £90m-rated forward this summer

Gareth Bale Real Madrid

Real Madrid have reportedly begun discussions with top Premier League clubs including Manchester United as they look to offload Gareth Bale from their ranks.

The Wales international has been a key performer during his four-year spell at the Bernabeu, but the ongoing pursuit of Kylian Mbappe seems to have unsettled the attacker.

According to Marca, the European champions are prepared to part ways with Bale this summer with Zinedine Zidane not in preference of having both the Welshman and Mbappe in his squad.

The former Tottenham Hotspur man has previously cited that he is happy to continue his journey with the Capital outfit, but it appears that the latest developments have loosened his stance over a potential exit.

Bale has been pursued by United since his days with Southampton but his £90m valuation could prove a stumbling block for Jose Mourinho, who needs to sell few players before dipping again into the transfer market.

United have recruited the likes of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic this summer, and move for a new attacker looks to have stalled with Inter Milan reluctant to come down from their £49m asking price for the Croatia international.

Manchester United take on Real Madrid in the UEFA European Super Cup next week, and Bale is expected to take the playing field, should he have recovered from his minor knock.
