Manchester United Would Fight For Bale

Manchester United Would Fight For Bale

Gareth Bale's Real Madrid future seems certain one minute before speculation makes it seem as if his future is almost certainly away from the Santiago Bernabeu.

Manchester United, faced this evening in the European Super Cup, have been a consistent link with Bale from his Southampton and Tottenham days. If Real do decide to sell they'll 'fight' to sign him.

Jose Mourinho had recently said Bale was a 'mission impossible' to sign, much like Cristiano Ronaldo, and doesn't think the Welsh international will be available if he starts in Macedonia this evening.

Mourinho was quoted by Sky Sports: 'If he's playing tomorrow, well, no I wouldn't think of that possibility of signing on (Bale). If he is playing tomorrow, it is because he is in the coach's plans and in the club's plans and because he also has that ambition to continue in Real Madrid. So I haven't even thought of the possibility of signing him on our team.'

However, not that a lack of involvement necessarily means Bale doesn't have a future at the Bernabeu, Mourinho is ready to make his move if Real's stance on the availability of the forward changes.

Should that become the case Mourinho clearly wants Bale and expects this evening in Skopje to be telling.

Mourinho added: 'If he's not in the club's plans, if what you are writing right now is true - I am not sure whether it is or not - that the arrival of another player (would) perhaps (mean) Gareth would be on his way out. If he is on his way out of Real Madrid, well, I'll try to be waiting for him on the other side and try to fight with other coaches that would also like to have him on his team.'

Concluding: 'But I think that if he plays tomorrow, it is probably the best confirmation that they'll keep counting on him during the season.'

Meanwhile, also talking to Sky Sports, Ryan Giggs, a legend at Old Trafford, said he didn't think Bale would leave Real for Man United this summer but he 'can see it happening one day.'
