Gareth Bale wants to come to Manchester United

Real Madrid are one of the biggest clubs on the planet. Their European success is unrivaled, and as a result, there’s a lot of pressure on the club’s players to perform at the highest level. If the fans don’t like what they see, they don’t shy away from booing their own stars, like Gareth Bale.

The Welsh winger is still the club’s record signing and has had a very tough career at Real Madrid. He was the best player in the Premier League during his time with Tottenham Hotspur when Madrid came calling. Bale arrived amidst much fan-fare and won four Champions League titles with the club.

However, it hasn’t been all sunshine during Bale’s tenure at the club. The winger has struggled with several different injuries in Spain and is no longer the player that he once was. Fans turned on him several seasons ago, and there is little to no chance of him continuing at the club after his contract expires in three months.

Moreover, every single time that Bale does play, he gets booed by the fans. In Madrid’s last game at the Bernabeu, the club’s fans booed the Welsh winger the second he came on the pitch. While they might feel like their actions are justified, Casemiro doesn’t agree with them.

The Brazilian midfielder has been a mainstay in the starting eleven for several years now and has won three UCL titles with Bale. In a recent interview, Casemiro revealed that he doesn’t agree with the whistles, and if the fans whistle Bale, they are turning on the entire team.

Whistles to Gareth Bale? I don’t agree. If they whistle him they’re whistling all of us. Bale is part of the history of this club. When you whistle him you’re disrespecting the history of Real Madrid,” Casemiro said.

Nevertheless, the Welsh winger will take what he can get at this point, and will try to prove his class at another club. Clubs like AC Milan have been touted as potential destinations, but only time will tell where he will go next.
