    Ok, I've had my doubts, but that performance against Liverpool was basically the ultimate United audition.

    Issued a 'come get me' plea in his post match interview.

    Give him what he wants and lets bring this fine lad home to the PL.

    What say you lot?

    Just rose about 60m in one game probably. He'll stay there until he's old as feck.

    Get a couple of wingbacks and a central midfielder of sorts at the very least first.
    And even then I'd look at other options first.

    Meh

    You just know he'll come here and be a crock or look absolutely ordinary.

    Our problem lies beyond simply buying players. We are misusing them.

    Straight swap for Mata? Madrid have been trying to sign a Spaniard from us for ages so I'm sure they'll be game, set it up Ed.

    Madrid did sell James Rodriquez for €50m...

    I doubt Real would only sell for that sort of figure when he’s almost 29, injury prone and earning like €25m per season.

    Does it only count as knee jerk when you're calling for someone to be sold/sacked?

    He is perfect fit for us, being injured all the time and all that.

    Yeah he’s a superstar who can paper over cracks for any team. Surely he wants to be the main man and win the PL which was his bread and butter. Come on Gareth.

    It’s all right coming on and scoring two goals after another injury plague season, but most teams couldn’t expect to carry him and use him as a super sub. Don’t think United should go for him for this reason.

    wasn't it pretty much universally agreed about a moth ago he was on the decline and had been for about 18 month... would seem like a bit of gamble to fork out probably near 100mil becuase he ended the season well.

    There isn't a better RW available than a fit Gareth Bale. The problem is his that he's fit only half a season, plus his very high wages. For the right price though, I'd happily take him (say under £60m).

    Yeah, he’ll get a new contract and a promise of more football. His stock couldn’t be higher, good time to stake out a claim. There has to be some peril of him actually leaving to get what he wants

    Apparently from his post-match interview, they didn't show it on the channel I'm watching. Could be his way to get more playing time. Ronaldo's interview also seemed a bit conclusive in terms of Madrid. I don't think both of them will leave.

    He'll be our best player immediately quality wise. He's better than Sanchez himself.

    Get him in. Injuries or not, don't care.

    Was against the idea of Bale joining us but seeing our wing play over the last few months he is exactly what we need.....Star Quality.

    Thing is they don't play him. Listening to his post match interview, he seriously wants out.

    I reckon we'd be looking at about 80m - yes, it's a lot, but we've got it and we must be one of the few teams that could handle his wages.

    I also think he'd suit José's football, which is a big deal given how most big name players are more suited to the press/possession footy of the day.

    I'm all in, lets get him signed.

    He'll re-sign with them. But he's better than anyone in our side. Absolute bona fide leader.

    So odd to win a third CL in a row and within minutes Bale and Ronaldo announcing that they're looking to leave. Allegedly.

    Tony Martial for Bale seems fair given the age disparities.

    Would still say no to him due to his feckin injuries but he is undoubtedly world class . However there is no point paying 100+m on a player who will only play 3-4 months a season.

    My feeling is that one of them moves, the other stays. I think Bale wants to play more for Madrid, and Ronaldo is considering the move, to avoid a Casillas ending. If Ronaldo moves, Bale will have more playing time. Pure speculation on my end though. But it feels like Bale is frustrated with playing time, and Zidane must feel the pressure to give one of them a guarantee for next year

    Apparently Ronaldo's quote translated was: "It has been very beautiful playing for Real Madrid. I'll talk in a couple days"

    Haven't got the exact words to hand but apparently talking about his time at Real Madrid in the past tense and something about needing to address the fans.
