"I've never seen much anxiety surrounding Bale, even when there has been media speculation about his future and a possible return to the Premier League".

Why has Vinicius Jr been dubbed the 'next Neymar'?

Already at Real Madrid, the young star has been mainly a bench player but it seems that he could be a key figure at Old Trafford should he make the switch.

Bale, who was nearing a full recovery from a calf injury when he picked up a thigh problem last week, could be out for another six weeks.

Almost 50,000 fans had their say and 55 percent voted in favour of Vinicius being ready for a shot at the first team. He has not featured since.

Don Balón are the ones claiming that the English club are willing to spend an incredible €200m on the dazzling Spaniard. Bale did not last until half-time, limping off to be replaced by Marco Asensio.

Injuries. Since moving to Spain, the 28-year-old has suffered 11 periods on the sideline, which amount to 274 days and 56 missed games in total. PSG have no intention of selling their star signing any time soon, but that won't stop the Real president testing the waters by offering Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos as part of a players-plus-cash deal worth up to €400m to bring the Brazilian to the Santiago Bernabéu.

Apart from United, Chelsea will also be on alert as Antonio Conte would want to boost his side after a troubled start to their title defence. Meanwhile in Italy, Roma, Napoli and Juventus are all falling over themselves in the rush to sign out of favour United defender Matteo Darmian. In 2014, the count increased to three matches after he went down with a hamstring injury.

But following the Welshman battling through a plethora of injuries, it appears Real Madrid are prepared to listen to offers. It's often not the players' fault, they're often very unlucky, and you feel for him. Edinson Cavani and Robert Lewandowski have scored almost double (30) over the same period. He's finding that out now, Bale.
