Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale will opt to join Manchester United over Premier League champions Chelsea if he leaves the Spanish capital this summer, according to Diario Gol.
Speculation over Bale's potential move to United has persisted for years - with Bale turning down the chance to move to Old Trafford before in favour of Real in 2013 - and United have been linked with returning bids for the Welshman in the summers that followed.
A report from the Independent last week
The 27-year-old is believed to be happy to stay at Real, but if pressured into the move it's now claimed he will willingly move to Manchester in order to restart his career. Chelsea have long been linked with the player too, but Bale's preference is believed to be a move to the north west given the financial rewards United will be able to offer.
United have also been linked with moves for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann and Bale's teammate James Rodriguez, plus a number of other names. Transfer silly season is here, people.
