Man Utd unlikely to sign Real Madrid forward this summer

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale intends to see out the remaining two-and-a-half years contract at Santiago Bernabeu, according to the reports.

The Wales international was on the verge to leave the Los Blancos last summer for Chinese club Jiangsu Suning and the Spanish team are believed to still be hopeful of finding him a new team.

The Mirror claims that Gareth Bale will instead sit tight at Real Madrid and run down his deal, however, allowing him to leave as a free agent back in 2022.

Premier League giants Tottenham and Manchester United have been rumoured with a move for the 30-year-old, who has struggled to hold down a place in the Los Blancos starting XI this campaign.

Gareth Bale missed the Los Blancos recent Supercopa de Espana semi-final and final victory over Valencia and Atletico Madrid respectively and was also absent from last weekend’s clash against Sevilla.

Meanwhile, Serie A outfits Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali is reportedly a transfer target for both Liverpool and Manchester United before the end of the January transfer window.

The 19-year-old midfielder who has also been heavily linked with Serie A defending champions, Juventus, played a vital role in Brescia’s promotion from Serie B last campaign and has again been in stunning form this season.

Indeed, the Italy international has contributed one goal and provided two assists in 18 Serie A appearences during the 2019-20 season, with his form allegedly leading to a host of attention.

According to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, both Liverpool and Man Utd have sent scouts to keep close tabs on the teenager in action ahead of potential offers.
