Spanish giants Real Madrid have reportedly concluded their plans to sell rebel forward Gareth Bale at the end of the ongoing La Liga season.
Los Blancos are said to have run out of patience with the performances of Gareth Bale this season and will cash on his signature this summer.
This latest development is expected to be a cheering news for Premier League side Manchester United who have been looking for the signing of the former Tottenham star.
Six years ago, Gareth Bale joined Real Madrid in the then world record fee from Tottenham, and after Cristiano Ronaldo left the Bernabeu, he was tipped to replace the Portuguese.
But that has not happened and the 29-year-old’s form has alarmingly dipped this season with him scoring just 13 goals for the reigning European champions.
According to the report by AS, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has seen enough and wants Bale out of the Bernabeu this summer.
Real Madrid want Eden Hazard and could use the Welsh winger as bait to tempt the Blues into doing business.

Earlier he had reported how Gareth Bale was given a brutal nickname ‘Martian’ by his Real Madrid teammates because of his recent unusual attitude at the Spanish club.
It now appears that his teammates are turning their backs against the former Spurs’ forward after refusing to celebrate his goal against Levante with them.
Last Sunday which was February 24, Real Madrid defeated Levante 2-1 in tough Spanish La Liga encounter in which Gareth Bale scored the winner for the reigning European League champions.

Samson Siasia ban for life by Fifa
Former Nigeria coach Samson Siasia has been banned for life and fined $50,000 by Fifa for agreeing to ‘the manipulation of matches.’
Siasia was coach of Nigeria between 2010-2011 and for a spell in 2016 but the time period when Fifa believes he committed his infractions is unclear.
He has also served as coach of the country’s Under-20 and Under-23 sides.
In a statement, Siasia was found ‘guilty of having accepted that he would receive bribes in relation to the manipulation of matches.’
The sanction stems from an ongoing ‘large-scale investigation’ Fifa is conducting into the behaviour of Wilson Raj Perumal, a convicted match-fixer from Singapore.
He is the third African to be banned by Fifa for his links to Perumal after former Sierra Leone FA official Abu Bakarr Kabba and former Botswana FA official Mooketsi Kgotlele were suspended in July for five years and for life respectively.
A former international, Siasia won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria, for whom he played over 50 times while scoring 16 goals.
Liverpool sweat over Adrian fitness
Liverpool first choice keeper Allison Becker missed the UEFA Super cup final against Chelsea Fc due to calf injury.
Jurgen Klopp has stated they could play their second Permier League game against Southampton on Saturday without Adrian after a collision with a pitch invader.
Manager Jurgen Klopp says the Spaniard was injured during post-match celebrations following Liverpool’s win over Chelsea in the Super Cup on Wednesday.
“A supporter jumped over something, was chased by some security guys, slipped and kicked his ankle. Crazy,” Klopp said after Adrian saved Tammy Abraham’s penalty in the shootout win.”
He added: “Apart from that it was a brilliant night for him.”
Adrian was injured by a fan shortly after his team-mates congratulated him for the decisive penalty save during the Super Cup shootout
The incident happened as the Liverpool players were huddled together celebrating the match-winning save.
A supporter, attempting to join the group, ran towards them, slipping as he was grabbed by a steward, and collided with several players.
Klopp said: “There’s no doubt about how much we love our fans, there’s no doubt about that at all, but if they all could stop doing that – that’s the worst example we have so far heard about.
“We played against Manchester City and someone ran on the pitch then.
“At Norwich, there was someone as well.
“I don’t know what you can do about it in the stadium but that means there is a lot of responsibility for the supporters as well. If the one person cannot hesitate or stop himself, then the people around should do it because it’s not funny. It’s crazy. You think ‘wow, how can something like this happen?'”
Liverpool’s third-choice keeper Andy Lonergan, 35, who was an unused substitute for the game in Istanbul which finished 2-2 after extra time, could deputise for Adrian if the 32-year-old is ruled out.
