3 reasons why Gareth Bale should move to Manchester United
Real Madrid signed Gareth Bale from Spurs back in 2013 for then, a world record fee of £85 million. After impressing in his first season with the Los Blancos, the Welshman began struggling with injuries.
The very fact that United are still willing to pay up to £90 million for the player, speak the volumes of his ability. When fit, Bale is an absolute nightmare for the defenders. His sublime pace and precision on the ball held the eyes of Spanish giants back in 2013.
However, Real appear to be losing patience with the 28-year-old lately. Jose Mourinho has publicly expressed his desire to sign the Welsh. Reports suggest that Bale could be a makeweight in any possible deal for United goalkeeper, David de Gea. Here, we look at the reasons why Bale should consider a move to Old Trafford in order to get back to his best.
#1 Jose and his effective Man-Management
The Portuguese has been criticised for ruining some of the greatest careers in football in the past. Much has been said about his decision of selling De Bruyne, Lukaku and M. Salah during his time at Chelsea.
However, Mourinho has also been praised for his ability to get the best out of his players. His man-management has transformed some greatest careers in the game. Mourinho's choice of players turns out to be something of great importance for the club he manages. An injury prone player like Gareth Bale needs a figure like Mourinho to salvage his career.
Phil Jones, the United centre-back was equally vulnerable when it came to fitness. Jose has transformed Jones into one of the best English defenders presently with his brilliant man-management. Luke Shaw is a similar example. The Portuguese protects his players during the training and hectic fixture schedules and monitors their work-rate closely.
If Bale moves to United, Jose would be very precise with the Welshman's work-rate and game time, something that Zidane failed at.
