Transfer rumours: Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale to Manchester United?

Real Madrid’s winger and Welsh Captain Gareth Bale could be moving to Manchester United in summer.

According to Diario Gol the Welsh wizard “is not having a good season” because of “injuries that have not let him thrive”, as a result of which “his future is uncertain” – and could lie in Lancashire.

For this reason,even though Manchester United have been linked to Gareth Bale many times before this,perhaps, could be The One.

Jose Mourihno’s men, however, need to put there best foot forward to make sure they are not stuck in Europa for another season to ease this move.

Burnley’s Michael Keane is another target for United but Liverpool believe they can beat them to it.

Keane is a United fan and The Telegraph however believe that United “are confident of winning the race”, with the 25% sell-on clause they put in the deal they struck to send him to Burnley in 2015 now amounting to a decent discount on his now gallingly-expensive return. Wherever he ends up Burnley will need to replace him, and it seems they have already decided on a primary target, in the shape of the 26-year-old Barnsley captain Marc Roberts.

Another top-flight defender Virgil Van Dijk has been linked with transfer but according to the Southampton manager, Claude Puel, he is going nowhere.

Everton could have Brighton’s David Stockdale for nothing, meanwhile, with the out-of-contract 31-year-old posting a series of farewell messages on social media that strongly hint he is not planning an extended stay on the south coast.

Everton also want to seal the deal for Jordan Pickford before anyone gets to think of it.
