Manchester United have been handed a huge boost in their pursuit of Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.
The Old Trafford club are known to be interested in putting together a move for the former Tottenham Hotspur star.
Louis van Gaal’s side are thought to have put £80 million aside to sign him when the opportunity arises.
Now they have received the biggest indication that he would be up for a return to the Premier League, according to the Sunday Express.
The Welsh winger is said to have revealed that he is open to a move back to England when the season reaches its conclusion, with his family also keen on a return.
Man Utd actually offered Spurs more than the amount Real Madrid paid for Bale, but the deal with the Spanish club was too far down the line to be stopped.
With Bale interested in a switch, Van Gaal and the club’s hierarchy are primed to pounce.
Man Utd are clearly keen on Bale, and if the player wants a move, it makes sense for both parties. Bale scored in the Club World Cup final earlier this week, showing his inherent talent.
