- Match Analysis
Gareth Bale has been, for a long while, linked with Manchester United as his next destination. Jose Mourinho’s interest in the Welshman has been no secret, with the United boss having said to have devised a deal last summer.
However, according to Marca, United seemed to have lost interest in the injury-ridden player, although Real Madrid still peg his value around £80m.
It is being said that Bale’s long list of injury problems have forced Mourinho to turn his head away, even as Alexis Sanchez’s arrival seems to be making the headlines.
It is also being reported that United’s interest in Cristiano Ronaldo has also cooled, with the side set to hand over the No.7 jersey to the incoming Chilean, a number that Ronaldo prefers wearing. The same report says that Mourinho will be happy with what his attack looks like once Sanchez arrives.
