Real Madrid Star Persuaded To Join Man Utd?
Real Madrid Star Persuaded To Join Manchester United?
Several Real Madrid stars are said to be on Manchester United's radar, but one Los Blancos player has now reportedly been persuaded to sign for Jose Mourinho's Red Devils.
United have been tracking winger Gareth Bale since before his 2013 move to Spain, which made him the world's most expensive player at the time.
The Premier League giants are still said to be after the Welshman, and new reports suggest there has been some development in their chase for him.
According to Sport, Mourinho has convinced the 28-year-old to join the Manchester club, with it being believed that the attacker does not want to stay at Real.
Bale has struggled with injuries since his move to the Spanish capital, with the past two seasons being arguably his most difficult period at the club.
Since returning from injury in November, the player has struggled to cement a spot in Zinedine Zidane's starting XI, despite some promising performances.
Bale is said to be frustrated with Zidane's apparent lack of faith in him, which has made him consider a move away from the club.
Mourinho has reportedly convinced the winger that taking his career to Old Trafford would be best for him, although Real are likely to demand a big transfer fee for his signature.
Bale has played just 29 times so far for Los Blancos this season, scoring 12 goals and assisting a further seven strikes.
