Manchester United are prepared to let their French forward Anthony Martial leave in order to fund a move to bring Real Madrid speedster Gareth Bale back to the Premier League in the summer. According to recent reports, the Red Devils will use the money generated from the sale of the French international to convince Los Blancos to part ways with their Welsh wizard.

It is believed that United boss Jose Mourinho has finally run out of patience with Martial after the French ace has failed to consistently produce the goods at Old Trafford during the course of this season. The 22-year-old forward signed for the Red Devils in the summer of 2015 for a reported fee in the region of £36m which could rise to £58m. He has been a sporadic feature in Mourinho’s first-team in this campaign and now, the Portuguese manager is ready to cash in on his services this off-season with Juventus showing interest in signing him.

Some sources are now claiming that the Manchester outfit will look to use the funds generated for his potential transfer to arrange a deal for Bale. It is understood that the Red Devils have enquired about the availability of the Welsh winger in each of the past three summer transfer windows only for the Galacticos to insist that their 28-year-old forward was not for sale. However, their stance has now changed as the reigning European champions believe that Bale is too injury-prone which is why he has missed too many matches over the last few years.
