“Man U likely to sign Bale”….Mourinho

Jose Mourinho says he will push for Gareth Bale’s signature if the Welsh star is left out of Real Madrid’s team in Tuesday’s Super Cup fixture against Manchester United, with Zinedine Zidane only adding further edge to the story by turning down three opportunities to definitively say the winger would be staying.

The possibility of the 28-year-old going to Old Trafford this summer has never gone away and been frequently mooted by sources close to both clubs, with many believing the Spanish champions would be willing to sell if they eventually bring in Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe.

That could take the decision out of Bale’s hands, even though he had made it clear he wants to stay in Madrid and fight for his place, at least for another year. It is however also known that Old Trafford would be his top preference were he to leave, and some close to United feel that Mourinho’s comments were primarily directed at Bale himself to try and force the situation.
