ManUnited wants top star as Sancho alternative
Manchester United wants to hire Welsh national footballer Gareth Bale of Real Madrid, according to a report from the tabloid newspaper “The Sun”.
Accordingly, the English record champion originally wanted to borrow the 31-year-old Bale. But Real Madrid, where Bale no longer plays a role despite a contract until 2022, is now supposedly ready to sell the Welsh for around 20 million euros.
However, a possible hurdle is that the 31-year-old in Manchester would have to accept a wage cut and Real might have to pay a portion of Bale’s salary.English international Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund is considered a favourite candidate for the Red Devils. BVB Managing Director Hans-Joachim Watzke categorically excluded a change of Sanchos. “The Sancho remains are carved in stone,” Watzke told the “German Press Agency” in mid-August.
British media reported an alleged “breakthrough” in Man United’s negotiations with Sancho afterwards. The fact that the 20-year-old, who still has a contract in Dortmund until 2023, will move to Old Trafford this summer is nevertheless considered extremely unlikely.
