Gareth Bale transfer latest: Manchester United ruled out of race to sign Real Madrid star with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain ‘interested’


The public fallout between Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane and Gareth Bale has put several clubs on red alert.

Zidane recently revealed the Spanish club are trying to shift the winger as soon as possible, sparking a feud with the Welshman’s agent Jonathan Barnett.

The Frenchman said he wanted the 30-year-old to leave ‘soon’ because it would be ‘a good thing for the club’.

Barnett hit back with some strong words, saying: “Zidane is a disgrace. He shows no respect for a player that has done so much for Real Madrid.”

Despite six seasons with Madrid and an incredible four Champions League titles, with the forward scoring vital goals in finals, the fans have also turned and booed him on several occasions.

Bale still has three years left to run on his £650,000-a-week contract and the sheer scale of that figure has ruled out several clubs from signing him.

The Times reports that Bayern Munich are interested, with Thiago Alcantara even saying in a press conference that he would always be welcome at the Bundesliga club.

Paris Saint-Germain are the other leading European club who have shown an interest, with speculation surrounding a potential swap deal involving wantaway forward Neymar.

Jiangsu Suning are one of several Chinese clubs who are said to be considering a move for the forward, while Beijing Guoan are set to offer him a deal to become the highest-paid player in Chinese football history.

One team who would appear to be out of the running are Manchester United despite their attempts to sign him previously.

Tottenham, who sold him to Madrid in 2013 for £86million, are believed to have first refusal but they do not seem interested.

Bayern would be the natural fit for Bale as they have been in the market for a winger following the departure of both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
