Real Madrid have told potential buyers of winger Gareth Bale to prepare to cough out £85 million.
According to Daily Mirror, Manchester United have continued to monitor the winger’s situation in Spain.
The Walsh attacker has struggled with injuries throughout his time at Santiago Bernabeu and the club board are apparently ready to cash in before his value begins to decline.
The 28-year-old is still a huge asset to the Spanish giants when fit, but sadly calf and thigh problems have sidelined him for much of the season.
Apart from United, Bale’s former side Tottenham and Premier League holders, Chelsea have shown interests.
But the buying clubs will likely wait till next summer, when it might be possible to negotiate a lower fee depending on how much Bale is involved between now and the end of the season.
