Bale wants transfer to Manchester United


Bale hinted he would leave Real Madrid this summer after scoring twice in the final.

Bale‘s first choice of club remains Manchester United by some distance, if the Champions League match-winner were to leave Real Madrid this summer – although there is now much more doubt over whether the Premier League side would do a deal.

The 28-year-old offered what looked the ultimate parting gift by winning the European Cup final against Liverpool with two goals, one of them among the greatest ever seen in the fixture, before then admitting he has to consider his future after a season where he has been in and out of the side.


Bale only started the final in Kyiv as a substitute, before winning the game with an overhead kick.

“I need to be playing week in, week out, and that’s not happened this season,” the forward said. “I had an injury five, six weeks into the season but I’ve been fit ever since,” added Bale. I have to sit down with my agent in the summer and discuss it.”

Manager Zinedine Zidane then admitted Bale’s situation is “complicated”, but it could be even more complicated to get the deal he wants.

There has been mutual interest between United and Bale since 2012, and the Old Trafford club did threaten Madrid for his signature in 2013.
