now despite the fact he has played in games and has made a significant number of Real fans happy at last with his performances. Does anybody see a link here with United desperate for striking power and experience or do you think it is just another case of Gareth will turn down United again if the club makes moves to talk to him/his agent? I have to admit now, with our lack of experience and manpower dragging us down it might be good if Gareth Bale was looking to make his exit from Real and would possibly consider United. However, the nagging questions remain - his fitness, his obvious indifference to Manchester United in turning us down a few times, the fact that United is not attractive at the moment to players of Gareth's status, lack of Champions League football, the way the squad looks at the moment and the media reveling in United's 'fall' etc. Plus the wages. Is Gareth Bale at United finally going to happen or is it ridiculous to even consider it?
