5 reasons why Gareth Bale should join Manchester United
It is really sad to see how Gareth Bale has fallen down the pecking order at Real Madrid. Once upon a time the world's most expensive player, he is now searching for the faintest glimmer of hope in order to resuscitate his career, constantly battling injuries.
However, is Santiago Bernabeu the right place for him to stay and fight for his place? It doesn't seem so. The Real Madrid hierarchy have become frustrated with the injury-prone forward and are more than keen to offload him in lieu of making another Galactico signing.
Also, Bale is already 28 and is getting no younger as days pass by. The Real Madrid dream has already turned into a nightmare and an exit seems the best option if he does plan to revive his career. That being said, here are 5 reasons why he should consider returning to England with Manchester United as the next destination:
#5 He knows the Premier League
Unlike many others, adjusting to the Premier League won't be a problem for Bale, would it? He has a plethora of experience in ways of handling the rigours of the English game. I'm sure you haven't forgotten about how rampant he was in the league in his last season with Tottenham, winning the Premier League Player of the Season award in 2012-13.
To top it all, there are rumours that Mourinho is eager to coach him at United. The Portuguese mastermind is a long-term admirer of Bale and having the manager's trust and confidence in oneself makes it easier for a player to settle down in any team.
Of course, injuries have raised certain doubts whether the Welshman can match his best season in England on his arrival to United. But, if he's given adequate minutes to prove himself, Bale can certainly reach the heights he did in the past.
Also, the United supporters deserve a worthy mention. The fans at Old Trafford are lenient compared to those at the Bernabeu and in his torrid times, that comes really handy for any footballer. All in all, a move to the Red Devils looks the best option by which Gareth Bale can salvage his career.
