Jose Mourinho has admitted if the 28-year-old is unsettled and becomes available he would welcome him to Manchester United with open arms.
And pundit Danny Mills thinks the Wales international would be a fantastic addition to the Red Devils’ squad playing alongside Romelu Lukaku.
“Clearly Gareth Bale is a fantastic talent,” Mills told Sky Sports.
Jose Mourinho has admitted he would snap up Gareth Bale
“I think when I look at Manchester United now in Mourinho’s second season, he has sorted out the spine of the team.
“He’s got Romelu Lukaku – their target man, their focus point, their Didier Drogba.
“And to have Bale’s pace, power and goalscoring ability alongside Luakau on either flank I think would be a magnificent signing.”
“If he is in the plans of the coach and the club and it is in his own plans and ambitions to stay there, then I won’t even think about it,” he said.
“If he is not in the club’s plans and it is true that a player like Bale is at the departure gate, I will try to be there waiting for him at the other side.”
Bale is under contract at the Bernabeu until June 2022 having penned a new deal last October.
