Man Utd on alert as Real Madrid ‘put £131m price tag on Gareth Bale in summer’

MANCHESTER UNITED have been put on red alert as reports in Spain state Real Madrid have set a price for Gareth Bale.

Spanish TV network Telemadrid claim Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has set a price of between £131million for the Welsh winger.

Bale, 29, joined the La Liga giants from Tottenham for then-world record £86m in 2013.

The former Spurs star was expected to assume a leadership role following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus last summer.

But the Welshman has failed to impress this season and currently finds himself as a substitute more often than not under Santiago Solari.

The new Real boss has opted for the attacking trio of Lucas Vazquez, Karim Benzema and young Brazilian star Vinicius Junior.

A long string of injuries have plagued Bale’s five-and-a-half-year career at the Bernabeu.

Recently he has been criticised for his lack of effort to integrate at the club and to life in the Spanish capital.

Manchester United and Chelsea have both been linked with moves for Bale who was named the PFA Players' Player of the Year in the 2010–11 and 2012–13 seasons.

Bale has scored six goals in 19 La Liga appearances this term - but the stats tell a worrying tale for the 74-cap Wales international.

Meanwhile, Bale is planning to move his wedding to a private island amid security fears - even hiring armed guards for the celebration.

The ex-Southampton full-back has also lifted the lid on his fury on not starting last season's Champions League final.

Bale scored twice, including a sensational overhead-kick, but was originally left on the bench by Zinedine Zidane - much to his disgust.
