Real Madrid lower asking price for Manchester United target Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale

The Welsh worldwide, 28, has suffered multiple injuries over the past 12 months, which has led to him playing in just nine of Real's 19 games in all competitions this season.

Manchester United have always been linked with a move for the Welshman, while former club Tottenham have also been mentioned by the Spanish media as a possible destination.

Bale has been hugely successful at Real since he moved to the club from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 for a then-world-record fee of £85 million.

While that's a considerable drop on Bale's value last summer, Madrid are likely to still see value in the deal for a player that's missed almost 60% of matches since moving to Spain.

Bale was linked with Manchester United several times last season as it appeared Real Madrid favoured that man who replaced him when injured, Isco. He comes with us, and he is happy and we see an incredible player. "Okay, he's had many injuries but, generally, the Premier League is much harder than La Liga in terms of physicality". "If he is happy in Madrid then fine, if he is not then he needs to go and play somewhere where he is happy".

This is one of those transfer reports which you nod your head to and say "yep, this all seems to add up nicely for everyone concerned".

"It's a shame really, he'll be a loss for them [Real Madrid] and we need him now also".

With just seven league goals last season, Bale struggled with injuries, and the same can be said of this season, having made just six starts in all competitions this season.

And the former Spurs man suffered another set-back recently, with Madrid confirming that he had picked up a groin strain in a training session on November 9.
