Man Utd waiting for Real Madrid and Bale to settle contract payoff

Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale doesn't want to leave in a loan arrangement.

The Daily Mail says Madrid have expressed a willingness to pay 50 per cent of Bale's £600,000 a week salary to help pave a move away but with two years left on contract that is not straight forward.

Manchester United have an interest in the Wales international but not at the current figures being demanded by Madrid.

Preferable to suitors would be for Madrid to reach a compromise over his contract and mutually agree to cancel it. They have yet to agree to that though as they assess all options of recouping what money they can in the current climate.

United retain an interest in the Welshman as well as Jack Grealish at Aston Villa while Ivan Perisic has been suggested on loan from Inter Milan.
