Manchester United have reportedly been given major boost in their quest to sign Real Madrid attacking midfielder Gareth Bale.
According to The Express, the former Totteham star has agreed with Madrid president Florentino Perez for an exit next summer, with United and Tottenham said to be keen.
The 28-year old has struggled for regular game thus far following persistent injury problem, with just 10 cameo appearances for the Los Blancos this season.
The Champions League winner was linked with a move to Old Trafford last summer transfer but the deal never materialized.
Bale joined Madrid in 2013 in a £85million deal from Tottenham but report now has it that both Spurs and United are only willing to offer £53million for the winger services.
Although Madrid are willing to let Bale leave in summer, it is however yet to be seen if they will accept £53milion from suitors, as that will be a significant loss on the transfer fee they paid for his services in 2013.
The Champions League defending champions have struggle this season as they are currently eight points behind league leader Barcelona and finished second in their Champions’ League group stage.
The European giants are reportedly targeting Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Tottenham’s Dele Ali as a potential replacement for Bale in the summer.
