Rumoured Man Utd Target Gareth Bale Reveals What He Told Romelu Lukaku After Friendly in LA

Publish date:

​Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has revealed what he told Manchester United new boy Romelu Lukaku after the game between the two sides on Sunday.

The Welshman has spent much of the last few months being tentatively linked with a return to the Premier League - in particular to join Manchester United. While nothing has materialised at all, many were unsurprisingly interested in the exchange of words that went on between Lukaku and Bale after the game had finished between Madrid and United.


"I just wished him good luck - obviously he's just signed there," Bale told Sky Sports.

"I just wished him luck for the season and hope he has a great season.

"He's been playing long enough, he's done very well in the Premier League and I'm sure he'll do great for them."  

Despite United not making any moves for Bale this summer, speculation has continued to persist around the 28-year-old's future, and Bale seemed happy that Jose Mourinho had ruled out a move for the former Spurs man, claiming that it would be 'mission impossible':

"There you go - I haven't said anything." Bale stated before opening up on Los Blancos' plans for the upcoming season.

"We go into every competition looking to win it and it's no different again this year,

We have got the motivation to do that and will be trying our hardest to win every competition we enter."

Bale will be heading into this term with hopes of improving on last season - where he managed only 19 appearances and seven goals in an injury laden campaign.
