Gareth Bale has reportedly reached out to Manchester United manager Jose Mourinhoover the English club’s long time interest in him.

The Welsh star moved to Spanish giant Real Madrid in a £86million record transfer deal from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013.

Bale was signed by the club chief Florentino Perez. However Spanish source DiarioGol claims that he is now ready to plan his exit from the side as he has continually lived in the shadows of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Manchester United have always wanted the player at the club. They were hugely interested when Bale was ready to exit Spurs but he opted to leave England altogether. Mourinho is hunting for a game changer as United struggle to reach expected heights this term.

Another source Don Balon claims that Mourinho wants Bale on his shortlist and he would be delighted to sign another top star.

There are reports in Spain that Bale wants the spotlight now so he is putting pressure on the management to make him the number one player or lose him to Man United.

However, the player signed a new deal last year and has maintained that he wants to spend his new few years in Spain. He recently spoke well of his relationship with the 2016 Euro champion.

“We’ve always got on well….so it hasn’t gone too bad,” he said of their relationship.

The player was promised as the successor of Ronaldo but it seems the player has a few more years before he bows out – a limiting factor for Bale. Bale has barely made an impact this year, with the injury adding to his problems. He has lifted two Champions League, one Copa del Rey, a FIFA World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup. Real are in pole position for a La Liga title this year, but nonetheless Bale has been a success in Spain.

It seems he wants to move on to something else but it would not be an easy move.
