While Bale is one of the top players of the game in the world, he has struggled to produce the goods for Madrid this term.

After the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale has struggled to make an impact.

Following Madrid's premature exit from the Champions League, it is being rumored that new manager Zinedine Zidane is willing to offload Bale.

Picture perfect

Bale's resume is perfect for United

Although Bale might be unsettled in Madrid for the past two years, he has achieved enough at the club to make a name for himself.

With four UCL titles, along with a title each in La Liga, Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup, followed by three UEFA Super Cups and four FIFA Club World Cups, he has a dream resume.

Price

Is Bale's price-tag of £113 mn too much for United?

Is Bale's price-tag of £113 mn too much for United?

Madrid have placed a humongous price tag of £113 mn on Bale.

This is being done to discourage United from pursuing him. As per the reports, Los Blancos want the swap deal rather than the cash from United.

Interestingly, United have been breaking the bank for good players, and it won't be a surprise if they do decide to acquire the Welshman.
