It is no secret that the 2017/18 season was horrible for Manchester United who went trophy less after Chelsea defeated them at the FA Cup final one week ago.
Jose Mourinho will have to dig deeper in the transfer market to look for new players that would bolster his current squad and United legend Rio Ferdinand has tipped off Real Madrid star Gareth Bale to quit the UEFA Champions League winners to come to the Old Trafford.
The winger has caught the attention of everyone after his remarkable performance against Liverpool on Saturday when they clashed for the UCL trophy which Real Madrid ended up winning thanks to two brilliant goals from the Welsh international, his comments after the match has however raised many speculations after he confirmed that he wants to play every week and said that he will discuss this with his agent in the summer.
Rio Ferdinand believes that Gareth Bale should come to Manchester United and become Jose Mourinho’s “main man”. The United legend said this via a post on his official Instagram account.
RIO FERDINAND’S INSTAGRAM LONG POST
Gareth Bale 4 CL winners medals, 3 CL finals goals – what more is there to do at @realmadrid for @garethbale11? He was brought there to eventually take over the mantle as the teams talisman from @cristiano but the Portuguese megastar has not played ball with that idea Real had regarding #Bale. He has sustained a relentless assault on collecting individual & collective team awards through his phenomenal goal scoring exploits since Bale arrived in #Madrid. Some may say Gareth’s non combative nature and him not having an ego to rival Ronaldo’s has played its part in holding Gareth back from going on to take the top dog spot at Madrid’s top table – who knows but it was never going to be easy. But what he has done is produce magic moments on the big stage – in finals, and played a vital role in this record breaking squad lead by the great @zidane. Whatever anyone has to say about him he has etched himself into the history of Real Madrid, a club that prides itself on winning the biggest prize in European club football. Now I feel it’s up to him to decide what he wants. Some will say he has nothing to prove & I understand that to a certain extent but does he want to go somewhere & be the main man & take on the full responsibility of a club who want to win? Or does he want to remain & continue in the role he is in now, as the supporting cast…? Personally I would love to see him come back to the @premierleague (preferably with @manchesterunited) & dominate. Write a new chapter as a leader of a club, the go to guy at all times, the icon….this is what the greats do in all sports not just football, it elevates them… 4 @championsleague winners medals, 3 #UCL finals goals ?
Jose Mourinho is now confused after a poor performance last season because he praised his squad before the season kicked off in August 2017 but things didn’t go well after as they finished second, trailing Manchester City with 19 points. The Portuguese would likely try his luck if an opportunity to sign Gareth Bale became open because it’s even reported by the Mirror that Manchester United have prepared £250million to try to acquire the Welsh man from Real Madrid this summer.
