Gareth Bale admits he wants Premier League return as Man Utd move on from Jadon Sancho


Gareth Bale is open to returning to the Premier League - and Manchester United are looking for alternatives to Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils are ready to give up on signing the Borussia Dortmund forward after being quoted £100million-plus for the England international.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still keen on strengthening his attack, and the Daily Star claim Bale is one of the attackers the club are considering.

Bale recently addressed his future, and admitted he would be open to returning to the Premier League if a club was to make an offer for him.

He said: "If those options arise, it is something I'd look at for sure. We'll see what happens, we have plenty of time in this transfer window and a couple of others as well.

"Time will tell but mainly I think the reason is that the decision is in Real Madrid's hands."

Bale was the subject of a £89m bid from an unnamed Premier League team last summer but the offer was rejected.

Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon told talkSPORT: "I know in the last day of the transfer window last year there was an offer from the Premier League.

"They offered €100m [£89m] and Real Madrid turned down that offer because they thought Bale would be a player in their side.

"I'm not allowed to say the name, though I do know the name of the club. I think at the end there was a disagreement as Madrid decided not to sell the player, because they thought he was a player who could be used and be in the starting line-up."

Bale has claimed that Real Madrid are making it hard for him to leave, but it appears they have now had a change of heart.
