The Welshman has been a top target for Manchester United ever since his days at Tottenham Hotspur, and the Red Devils could have been handed a boost in their pursuit of the world’s most expensive player.

For quite some time now, Manchester United have had their eye on the former Tottenham player, who was snapped up by Real Madrid in 2013 for a record breaking 100 million euro transfer fee. Bale has slotted into the Real Madrid team seamlessly, forming the fearsome BBC attacking trio with French forward Karim Benzema and the Portuguese goal machine Cristiano Ronaldo. The Welshman has notched up more than 50 goals for Los Blancos since moving to the Santiago Bernabeu.

However that partnership could be broken soon, with Bale reportedly seeking a move back to the UK and the Premier League, according to the Sun. This news will be greeted with much approval by Manchester United, who are in dire need of a player like Bale to boost their ailing squad.

Bale’s current contract extends till 2019, but Real may allegedly let him go if indeed he wants to return to the Premier League. The authorities at Real Madrid would likely want to make up for the huge fee they signed him for though, and Manchester United might just have to outdo the record transfer fee in order to get Bale to Old Trafford.

The BAR at Manchester United

Manchester United’s current first choice on the right wing is academy product Jesse Lingard. Though Lingard has put in some impressive performances for the Red Devils this season, they do not match up to the Welshman’s standards, and Bale is likely to knock Lingard out of the first team.

The Welshman would be a devastating player for United, and would likely join the aging Wayne Rooney and the young Anthony Martial to form yet another great attacking trio.

Bale, Anthony and Rooney could become the dreaded BAR, breaking up the BBC and competing with the MSN (Messi, Suarez, Neymar).

Manchester United are already sending feelers to the player’s agent, and if this stand-off regarding his contract with Real Madrid is not resolved by the summer, Gareth Bale could possibly be on his way to Old Trafford.
