Manchester United fans are demanding that the club make a solid move for Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale this summer.
Injuries have halted Bale’s consistent starts at Madrid in the last two seasons, losing his place to the likes of Isco, Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez.
The Welsh winger has been in form when given the chance by boss Zinedine Zidane however, but he was named on the bench for Saturday’s match in Kiev against Liverpool.

Coming off the bench for Spanish midfielder Isco in the second half, Bale took matters into his own hands, netting a superb overhead kick just moments after coming on, and scoring a 25-yard effort which was fumbled by Reds keeper Loris Karius.
Whilst Bale’s heroic performance has many Madrid fans wetting their lips and celebrating, the former Tottenham Hotspur winger instantly told reporters that he would be speaking to his agent about his future at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I need to be playing week in, week out, and that’s not happened this season,” Bale told BT Sport.
“I had an injury five, six weeks into the season but I’ve been fit ever since.
“I have to sit down with my agent in the summer and discuss it.
“Obviously I was very disappointed not to start the game, I have deserved it but the manager makes the decisions.”
And, that has led a number of Man United fans to take to Twitter to display their desire for the English club to make a move for the Welsh international.

United boss Jose Mourinho has been keen on Bale for some-time and with his latest comments, now could be the perfect time to make a move.
One other player who could leave Real Madrid is Cristiano Ronaldo after he told reporters that he would let the Spanish club know his future next week when he links up with the Portuguese national side ahead of the World Cup in Russia next month.
