Manchester United: Gareth Bale’s dream is to play for Manchester United amidst his transfer saga at Real Madrid.
All summer, the news coming out of Real Madrid has been Bale’s departure from the club. New Manager Zinedine Zidane does not see him in his future plans and has been working on his exit. However, finding suitors for the Welsh winger proved to be extremely difficult. Very few clubs can afford to pick up his £600,000-a-week Real Madrid pay. Those that can, have shown little to no interest.
Zidane finally found respite when Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning came calling. The club were not only willing to pick up the £600,000-a-week but raise it to £1m-per-week. However, Real Madrid called the deal off at the last moment. Which means that Bale is still a Real Madrid player whether he or Zidane likes it or not.
However, should Bale choose to find a way out of the club there remains only two options for him to pursuit. Marca have reported that Bale could either work a new deal with some other Chinese side or seek an alternative in the English Premier League.

The Forward has been linked with a move to Tottenham but doing so will result in Bale taking a huge pay cut. Bale instead is looking ahead for a stint with Manchester United, playing for whom still remains a dream for the winger.
But does United want Bale?
Manchester United are hard pressed for attacking options. At the moment, Marcus Rashford, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku are the only world class candidates they have. With Sanchez yet to perform for United and Lukaku looking for a way out, there is place for Bale in the squad. However, United may not be very keen to pick up Bale’s enormous wage. Unless Bale is alright with sacrificing money for his dream, it is very likely that it will remain one. However, with 10 more days still to go in the English transfer season, anything and everything is still possible.
