GARETH BALE has reportedly told colleagues he would leave Real Madrid for Old Trafford.
The former Tottenham star has had a hit-and-miss season under Zinedine Zidane this campaign.
Bale, 27, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks, with Jose Mourinho keen to splash the cash this summer.
It was claimed last night that Real are open to negotiating with United over a deal for Bale.
And the Independent say the Red Devils have been handed a major boost in their hunt for the ex-Spurs man.
