Real Madrid have slapped an £85 million price tag on Gareth Bale as Manchester United continue to monitor the winger’s situation in Spain, reports the Daily Mirror.
Bale has struggled with injuries throughout his time in Madrid, and the Bernabeu board are apparently ready to cash in before his value begins to decline.
Now 28, the Welshman is still a huge asset to Zinedine Zidane’s side when fit, but sadly calf and thigh problems have sidelined him for much of the season.
That hasn’t put off United, however, who are joined in expressing an interest by Bale’s former side Tottenham along with Chelsea.
It’s likely a deal will be thrashed out next summer, when it might be possible to negotiate a lower fee depending on how much Bale is involved between now and the end of the campaign.
