Jose Mourinho: I Will Fight To Sign Gareth Bale If...

By Kurt Buckerfield - Aug 08, 2017 08:45 AM @KurtLaduma

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has publicly declared his interest in Gareth Bale ahead of the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid on Tuesday night.

Study Shows Messi Is The Best Player In La Liga History

Recent reports have seen the Welshman being linked with a move to United, and in a press conference on Monday, Mourinho acknowledged that if Bale plays against the Red Devils in the UEFA Super Cup, he is likely to be in Zinedine Zidane's plans for the season.

However, the Portuguese tactician also admitted to being interested in the 28-year-old, revealing that if the player does hint at a Los Blancos exit, he will try his best to lure him to United.

"If he plays, it is the clearest signal that he is staying there," Mourinho said, according to BBC Sport.

"(If he plays,) he is in the plans of the coach and the club, and it is in his own plans and ambitions to stay there. Then I won't even think about it.

"If he is not in the club's plans and it is true that a player like Bale is at the departure gate, I will try to be there waiting for him at the other side."

Bale has played 150 games for Real since joining the club in 2013, scoring 67 goals and assisting a further 51 strikes.
