REAL MADRID star Gareth Bale has confided in team-mate Luka Modric and told him that he is ready to seal a return to the Premier League with Manchester United this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Manchester United are targeting a winger this month as Jose Mourinho aims to turn them into champions of England for the first time in five years.
The Red Devils have already completed deals for the likes of Victor Lindelof, Lukaku and Nemanja – but Mourinho has admitted he still wants one more signing.
Bale has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford and his Real Madrid future is up in the air given their pursuit of Monaco hitman Mbappe.
