Manchester United are understood to be readying a £90m offer to lure the Welshman back to the Premier League next summer, with the Red Devils committed to a new ‘Galactico’ era as they set about moving back to the top of the English game.
Real are rumoured to be open to offloading Bale for a massive fee amid concerns that he’s no longer an ideal fit in Carlo Ancelotti’s team, but they will want a world-class replacement should a sale go through.

The 23-year-old has since hit 35 goals in 126 outings and is considered to be one of European football’s top attacking midfielders.
