Could Gareth Bale be headed back to the U.K. with Manchester United? – National Soccer
August 14, 2015
And with questions daunting about the health of newly acquired Angel Di Maria, Bale could slide in and play a huge role on yet another extremely talented European superpower.
Starting out his career with English club Southampton in the 2005/2006 season, Bale slowly flourished into one of the best midfielder players in all of the Premier League. He is also tied for second in assists with Ander Herrara (3) and Wayne Rooney (3). And although they are unbeaten in seven league matches, some of their victories have been a product of luck more than skill. He didn’t reach his fullest potential until the 2012/2013 season with Tottenham though, in which he was third in the league in scoring with 21 goals, and helped Spurs to a fifth place finish. He’s also third on the team in league scoring behind Cristiano Ronaldo (25) and Karim Benzema (8), respectively. But with rumors swirling around Manchester United’s interest in the Welsh superstar, the transfer fee to bring him back to English soil could shatter that record.
It’s been rumored that the Welsh international has been eyeing a return to the U.K.
Man U currently sit at third place in the league table. With Louis Van Gaal taking over the reigns this season, United is back in the top four and fighting for a title shot.
Bale currently garners 13 goals and four assists in all competitions for the Galaticos this season. .
Bale currently boasts the same goal total as Man U’s leading scorer in Robin Van Persie (7). to be closer to his native Wales, but only time will tell if Man U will pull the trigger and make this possibly record-breaking deal come to fruition.
When European superclub Real Madrid bought Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder Gareth Bale for a reported £86 million, it was the most expensive transfer fee in the history of European football. Bale had his best season ever in 2013/2014 with Madrid, netting 22 goals and 16 assists in all competitions, and helping Real to their 10th Champions League title; their first since the 2001/2002 season
