Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke has urged his former club to break the bank and secure the signature of the Real Madrid star who will be loved at the English club a lot more than at his current side for his ability.

Manchester United’s legend Dwight Yorke has urged his former side to secure the signature of the Welshman who the club failed to secure in 2013 when the player chose Real Madrid, as confirmed by former manager David Moyes.

Yorke believes the pacy Welshman should be Louis van Gaal’s No.1 target as he looks to ready his squad to challenge Chelsea FC for the league title next season.

“I would get Gareth Bale in, that’s what United need, a player who will just take the ball and run.” Yorke said.

“He’s British, he’s exciting, he’s quick, fast, he goes past people and that will lift everyone going forward. That would excite everybody. And he will be loved here, he will be far more appreciated because the people here know what to expect.”

Yorke went on to explain why the player will be adored a lot more at Manchester United than he is at Real Madrid.

“The Spanish are hard people, they are used to the likes of Romario and Ronaldo a the dribblers with the silky skills. In all fairness, Bale is not silky a he is a powerhouse with great pace and that’s best for England.”


“When he is in full flow he is one of the best in the world. That’s why Madrid paid all the money for him. If I was signing one player for United this summer, it would be him.”

Manchester United have made contacts with Real Madrid regarding Bale, with United officials having requested details of a number of current Real Madrid players including Gareth Bale.

Real Madrid did immediately dismiss the enquiry right away, making it clear that the player is going nowhere.

It does not look like Manchester United will sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid this season, but, a transfer in future cannot be ruled out with the club having the financial ability as well as the reputation to pull the move off.
