Gareth Bale Real Madrid

According to reports from the Daily Star, Manchester United target Gareth Bale has been told by teammate Luka Modric to leave the Santiago Bernabeu amid criticism from the manager and the fans.

Since moving to Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur during the summer of 2013 for a then world record fee, Gareth Bale has enjoyed a lot of success in Spain by winning the Champions League a sensational 3 times in four years.

In addition to the impressive trophy haul, Bale has score 68 goals in 156 appearances for Los Blancos and although his record is not quite as good as Cristiano Ronaldo’s, it has to be said that the Welshman has been prolific in front of goal.

Despite his achievements though, Bale has endured a love-hate relationship with the Real Madrid fans and the 28-year-old has come under a lot of scrutiny this season in particular as he has been unable to produce his best amid a poor start in the league for the defending champions.

As a result, Bale has consistently been booed by the Madrid faithful and his manager Zinedine Zidane has also admitted that the attacker needs to perform better.

Zidane told a news conference recently, “We want and need him to do more on the pitch, and he does too. But we are calm because he will do it soon.”

As a result of being singled out when the entire Real Madrid team is performing below-par, Bale is currently said to be considering departing from the Spanish capital and according to reports from the Daily Star, teammate Luka Modric has urged the ex-Tottenham star to leave the hostile surroundings of the Santiago Bernabeu.

The news will surely come as a huge boost to Manchester United, who have consistently been linked with a move for Bale in recent times and while he is unlikely to arrive to Old Trafford in January, a transfer next summer now seems like a huge possibility.
