Why Gareth Bale will be at Manchester United's training ground this week
Gareth Bale will be at Manchester United’s training ground this week.
The Real Madrid star’s visit will be part of Wales’ international preparations.
The Mail report: “Ryan Giggs will take his Wales squad to Manchester United’s Carrington training base this week ahead of Wednesday’s friendly against Trinidad and Tobago in Wrexham.
“The complex remains a popular stomping ground for the Old Trafford legend. Giggs, 45, is there most Tuesdays and Thursdays to watch his 12-year-old son Zach, who is a United academy player.”
Bale’s future at Real Madrid is in greater doubt than at any point since he signed in 2013 for £86 million.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked about United making a move for Bale just last week.
Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “I can’t really comment on Gareth Bale or specific names because they’re property of other clubs.
“But we should look for quality players, definitely, and players who could improve us as a team.”
Solskjaer may well cross paths with Bale and the rest of the Wales squad at Carrington.
Bale was confirmed in the Welsh squad named by Giggs last week, Sky reported.
We have expressed our reservations over signing Bale.
There are also concerns over Bale’s age, cost, wages and injury record.
United are probably better off looking at younger alternatives.
If a deal does end up materialising though, this week’s visit could end up swaying his decision.
