Real Madrid consider £85m Gareth Bale transfer to Manchester United — Paper Round

Bale's latest injury is a strain to his adductor muscle, as confirmed in the medical report shared by Real Madrid.

Real want £85m for the player, which these days could probably be used more effectively on a player with fresher legs, or perhaps to bring in more than just one player.

The worst was an ankle injury picked up in November 2016 that kept him out until February of this year.

Bale secured a reported £85.3 million transfer from Spurs to the Spanish giants in 2013, following his heroics in the Premier League.

Because if Bale gets over his latest setback and comes back stronger again, there's no reason he can't rediscover the form he's shown at Madrid when fully fit.

Stielike questioned the nature of training at Real Madrid, and whether it should be made different for Gareth Bale, more moulded to his needs.

The player did not join up with the Wales squad for a friendly against France and instead waited to play for his club against Atletico Madrid, but now he will be out for several weeks.

And the Real president has reason to let Bale go without much of a fuss.

"We never take risks, we've never done that and I don't see that changing in the future". He needs to take his time and not rush himself back.

Manchester United have been reportedly linked with a move for the Tottenham star, although Chelsea are keen on Bale as well.

A club statement released on Friday indicated that the winger could be set for a one-month spell on the sidelines.

For a long time untouchable, the 'BBC' front three of Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo haven't played a single minute together so far this season.

According to Daily Mirror, Manchester United have continued to monitor the winger's situation in Spain. The 23-year-old German international was subject of a cut-price offer from Juventus in the summer, and they have retained an interest in signing him on a free transfer next summer.

"Robben has had his injury issues at Bayern, but nowhere near as severe as the issues he had at Real Madrid".
