Real Madrid have been heavily linked with AS Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe for quite some time now. And many tabloids across Europe have been reporting that a deal might have already been agreed between the two clubs. And if this holds true then we are assuming that Gareth Bale will be shown the door.

On his day Gareth Bale is nothing short of a world beater, but the Welshman’s time at Real Madrid has been constantly halted with injuries. And this has led Real coach Zinedine Zidane to believe that Bale is no longer an essential part of the squad. If Real Madrid gets Kylian Mbappe then be rest assured that Gareth Bale will be sold – this window or the next. And we have a feeling that the Welshman might just move to Manchester United.

But now Gareth Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has come out and claimed that all these rumours are ridiculous.

Barnett while speaking to BBC Sport said, “It’s a ridiculous, stupid story.”

The Red Devils have already tried to sign the 28-year-old twice in the past, once back in 2007 when Bale was moving to Tottenham and again in 2013 before he was about to sign for Real Madrid. So Bale being linked with United for the third time cannot be a mere coincidence.
