These stories seem as if they will go on to the summer, but report emanating from Spain claim that Manchester United have already reached agreement to sign Gareth Bale next summer.

Bale is making his latest return from injury after another difficult season; though he is a golden child of president Florentino Perez, even Perez has accepted that the Welshman remains the club’s most valuable commodity in terms of being able to raise significant capital.

Translated from this report:

Gareth Bale could be playing his last meetings with Real Madrid. Or at least that’s what he would want. The Welshman knows that his time in the white club is more than finished and he wants to pack his bags.

That is why he has already sought life and has reached a pre-agreement with a club in which he will be happy and will be able to return to the extreme that he was. Or at least that’s what they think from Manchester.

José Mourinho has convinced the owners of his club to go with everything to the crack of Real Madrid next summer. Even he himself has already spoken with Gareth and it seems that everything is already closed.

The fact is that Mou has been on Bale’s list of priorities for a long time. Last summer was for him but Florentino Perez closed the door to any exit of the striker. But the president’s patience has run out and he wants to sell it.

Of course, he wants to lose the least with his sale. Pérez knows that the investment he made (100 million) is very difficult to recover, but he wants to get the most out of it. From the offices of the Bernabéu has assessed the Cardiff at 90 million minimum.
A figure that no team is willing to pay for a player who is no longer the skillful and fast forward that was in other times. Without going any further, United plans not to exceed 60 million in the offer for him, a figure that Florentino, for now, has rejected.

The top white leader is not willing to assume that one of his franchise players is plummeting in the market. The president, who is a businessman, knows that Bale has a good asset and wants to get money for his departure, but the reality is that it is getting worse.
The continuous injuries have prevented the player from developing his game normally in Madrid. They are a total of 24 times he has had to go through nursing. In addition, the game of the League has never been the one that has most adjusted to your profile.
Mou knows that in the United and in the Premiership, the league where Gareth became great, the crack can rise from his ashes and return to be that great fast and skillful end that was when he played at Tottenham Hotspur.
He has everything agreed with him, now we just have to convince Madrid that the sooner he gets rid of it, the better.

The most likely explanation is that this is just the start of the leaks which will lead to Bale’s exit from Real this summer. It is well known that Ed Woodward is a big fan and has wanted Bale as a ‘marquee’ name; whether or not that time has been and gone remains to be seen.
