Reports of Real Madrid pursuing the services of Kylian Mbappe has been gathering steam over the past few days and fans all around the world are eager to see if the Spanish giants will be able to complete the potential world record breaking deal for the teenager.
While everyone seems to be keen on following the latest updates regarding Madrid’s chase for Mbappe, Premier League Manchester United will be casting a close eye on the developments with a special interest.
It has been claimed that if Madrid sign Mbappe this summer, they would be willing to allow Gareth Bale to leave and Los Blancos are said to be hopeful of selling the Welshman to Manchester United as they are one of the few clubs in the world who can afford him.
In addition, United have had a long standing interest in signing Bale and now if reports from the Metro are to be believed, the Red Devils hierarchy have grown increasingly confident that they can sign the 28-year-old this summer.
United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is determined to bring a global star to Old Trafford every year and although the club have signed Romelu Lukaku this summer, it is believed that they will pull out all the stops to land Bale if he is made available by Madrid.
