Inter Milan set sights on signing Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale – Manchester United drop interest

The Independent have been informed that Inter Milan are prepared to make an offer for Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale should Los Blancos make the Welshman available for transfer this summer.

The defending European champions are keen to reshape their attack and are potentially looking to offload Bale this summer to raise funds and make room for a world record offer for Paris Saint-Germain winger Neymar.

The report understands that the club’s president Florentino Perez has changed his stance over the 28-year-old and is now open to the possibility of selling him.

No longer “intransferible”

As the phrase goes in Spain – Bale was seen as “intransferible”, however now, Perez is considering offloading one of his former favourites whose sale would generate large funds this summer.

During his time in the Spanish capital, Bale has been plagued with injuries missing a total of 62 games since his arrival back in the summer of 2013.

This season, the Euro 2016 star has struggled with a calf problem which has forced him to miss a large majority of the season and also fall out of favour with manager Zinedine Zidane.

These factors have forced the club’s hierarchy to change their stance on the world’s former record signing who remains adamant he is happy at the Santigo Bernabeu.

No Premier League move

The former Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton star will not be returning to the Premier League this summer with Manchester United and other clubs having dropped their interest.

The player’s transfer fee, wage demands, age and injury record is putting potential suitors in England off of a move for Bale.

However, currently, the club most interested in signing the Weslham winger is Inter Milan who are not deterred by Madrid’s asking price.
