Gareth Bale transfer latest: Man United, Tottenham and Bayern Munich named as clubs interested in Real Madrid star
Manchester United and Tottenham are among the top European clubs circling Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale, according to reports.
The Welshman was once again booed by Los Blancos fans over the weekend after putting in an uninspiring performance against Eibar.
His future with the Bernebeu outfit has been subject to intense speculation following the return of Zinedine Zidane as manager, with the Frenchman often preferring to use Isco in his line-up throughout his first stint in charge.,
Bale has failed to win over the Real support in his six year stint with the club, despite playing an instrumental role in four Champions League triumphs and their LaLiga title.

Bale has been jeered in most games this season, while former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon launched a scathing attack on him last month, saying he has ‘not lived up to expectations’ since his £85million arrival from Tottenham.
A move away from Real this summer for the 29-year-old appears inevitable, and, according to Marca, Manchester United, Spurs and Bayern Munich are competing for his signature.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already preparing for a busy summer of spending ahead of his first full season in charge, and Marca report he could be about to swoop in on Bale as his marquee signing of the window – with a potential deal which sees Paul Pogba heading the other way mooted.
Elsewhere, Bayern Munich, who have already signed World Cup winning duo Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez for next season, are looking to replace departing veterans Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben.
Bale has also been linked with a return to Spurs, where he became a firm fan favourite in his six year spell at White Hart Lane, although it is expected this would be the least likely of his destinations.
Bale has netted 78 goals in 151 LaLiga appearances in the Spanish capital.
This season, he has eight goals and two assists in 25 matches.
