Manchester United could face competition from Bayern Munich for Gareth Bale should Real Madrid opt to sell this summer.
The Red Devils have been strongly linked to the Welsh superstar in recent years with Los Blancos ready to push the reset button this summer.
Florentino Perez may look to Bale’s recent form and cash in on the former Tottenham star, with Bayern now keen, according to reports in Spain.
Bale has proven to be more important than Cristiano Ronaldo this season for Zinedine Zidane’s side, which could make Perez think twice about ditching Bale, and instead push the Portuguese forward out the door instead.
The Spanish champions are reportedly considering a clear-out during the summer with Bale’s fellow strikers Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema also linked with exits.
However, Bayern Munich have now emerged as surprise contenders for Bale according to reports in Spain, despite their comparative reluctance to spend huge sums of money on players in recent years.
Bale has struggled with injuries in recent years but has still managed to score six La Liga goals in nine appearances so far this season.
