Some reports amongst English media over the last 24 hours have suggested that Gareth Bale will join Manchester United this summer, and the fans aren’t quite sure what to think.
Bale has not had the best year, his latest contribution for Madrid was to miss a sitter in the Champions League semi-final. His own fans want him to leave, and so that has fuelled speculation of return to the Premier League for the Welshman.
Chelsea and Manchester United have been the most heavily linked clubs with his signing, as the duo seem to be the only realistic Premier League clubs with enough financial power to successfully orchestrate a deal.
But has his poor form in Madrid been enough to make fans forget about his incredible Spurs performances? Many United fans have responded to the rumours by suggesting that his price tag is over-inflated for his actual quality. It seems most would view him as an unnecessary luxury signing, especially since the purchase of winger Memphis Depay was confirmed.
How much do you think Bale is worth after a mediocre first season in La Liga?
Here’s how the fans are reacting to the latest transfer talk on Bale:
Bale says he is frustrated of being played out of position, he better not come to Man United then…where players are always out of position

Imagine Man United team with Bale, Kane and Depay

Mirror say that Man United are ready to offer £500k/week to Bale. FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND POUNDS PER WEEK. As if.

If United have any sense they won’t sign Bale for 80 million! Not worth more than 40 million.

If, as suggested, United sign Bale and Ronaldo, I’ll pick them both up at the airport on my French speaking Unicorn called Cantona.

If United really want to be the biggest club in the world, then they need to sign players like Bale but also keep ADM
