ESPN Pundit Shaka Hislop does not believe Manchester United will succeed in signing Gareth Bale from Real Madrid this summer. The Wales international has been linked with both United and Bayern Munich since the start of the transfer window and Hislop feels the attacker would join the latter if he was to choose.
Speaking on the ESPN FC show, he said: “We’ve been talking about this for, not just this summer, but for the last two or three summers in all honesty. I’m going to put this down as a miss.Not because I don’t think Gareth Bale would be a great fit at Manchester United, and Manchester United are desperate to get him.But I think Bale was linked with Bayern Munich a couple of months ago, I think that’s more likely of the two destinations. So as a result, I’m going to put that down as a miss.”
