Real Madrid agree to let Bale go, but only if this condition is met

After a long deliberation about the current state of affairs at Real Madrid and the various rumours emerging about a possible squad revamp in the summer following a terrible run in the La Liga, Wales international Gareth Bale has decided that he wants to sign for Manchester United this summer.
At least that’s what Spanish media outlet Diario Gol has claimed.
However, there is some confusion over whether Real Madrid will allow this move, and it is speculated in the same report that the team will only allow the 28-year-old attacker to leave after they have secured a replacement.
Real Madrid had initially hoped to offer Bale to Tottenham in the hope that they would be able to get Harry Kane across in a player swap deal, but it appears like Bale himself would much rather link up with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford as the Portuguese coach looks to bring success back to the club.
The report goes on to add that Manchester United has made its interest in Bale very clear and even failed in an attempt to sign the forward in the summer transfer window.
There is also a mention of Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea used as a bargaining chip to try and push through a move at the end of the season.
Bale joined Real Madrid from Tottenham back in 2013, but has struggled with a string of injury problems at The Bernabeu.
