Paul Scholes would love to see Gareth Bale at Manchester United shirt next season but feels a potential transfer is unrealistic.
Bale ended a frustrating season at Real Madrid on a high with the match-winning goals in Saturday’s 3-1 Champions League final victory over Liverpool.
The Wales forward, whose double after he came on as a substitute included an overhead kick, hinted after the game that he may be willing to leave Madrid as he needs to be starting games regularly.nike nfl jerseys for cheap
United great Scholes believes every fan at Old Trafford would be excited by the prospect of Bale’s arrival, although he concedes a deal is unlikely.
“Can I see it happening? No, not really,” said Scholes, speaking at an official UEFA Champions League Final viewing party at London’s Sky Garden.
“The only reason he’d want to leave Real Madrid would be if they wanted him to go. Could he come to Man United then? I hope so.
“Every United fan would want him: great ability, great talent, scores great goals.
“If it’s possible then, yeah, great, I hope it happens. But I don’t see it happening.”
Bale, who cost Real around ￡85 million to sign from Tottenham in 2013, is reported to have been on United’s radar for a number of years.cheap nike nfl jerseys china
The 28-year-old was on the bench in Kiev having become a peripheral figure at the Bernabeu this season, but he quickly underlined his value to Zinedine Zidane’s side with a superb cameo.
Success for the LaLiga club meant they earned the title of European champions for a third successive year, while Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to win five Champions League medals.
Scholes, who spent six seasons playing alongside Ronaldo at United, hailed his former teammate’s achievements as “amazing” and said he was the best player in the world.
