Bale signing to create a buzz around Manchester United, Solskjaer has been told
Gareth Bale would bring a “buzz” to Manchester United if they managed to secure a transfer deal says Luke Chadwick.
Bale has been in the headlines alot over the past couple of days as it seems that he will finally get that move away from Madrid, with both Tottenham and United ready to bring him back to the Premier League.
It is believed that Madrid are so desperate to get Bale off the books that they have dropped his asking price to just £18 million and will even cover half of his £600,000-a-week wages at his next club.
And amid all the transfer speculation, Chadwick has claimed Bale would bring a “buzz” to Manchester United if they managed to secure a transfer deal in the coming weeks, The former United forward told CaughtOffside: “I’m sure lots of work has gone into the Sancho deal and things seem to be getting away from them at the moment.
“I think someone like Sancho adds a bit of X factor like in United teams of the past, so I think someone like him is essential.
“If it doesn’t happen, it will leave a bit of a hole and leaves a lack of time for the recruitment department to get someone of that quality into the club.”
“I think Bale would certainly give a buzz around the place.
“He’s obviously had a tough few years and not played the amount of football he would have hoped, but in terms of the sort of player he is, when you talk about Man United players of the past, he’s someone who would get the crowd excited, get fans off their seats.
“A wide player in the mould of Sancho, Bale, in my opinion would be a fantastic signing. One of those two, or someone in that position, needs to come in.”
