Has Gareth Bale been given the green light to join Manchester United?

Gary Neville reveals Anfield was the venue for Sir Alex Ferguson’s angriest moments

The intense rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester United has long been one that has dominated the Premier League, and who can blame them when they have won so many cups and trophies between them. In recent years, that rivalry has been taken down a notch as both United and Liverpool have struggled to rekindle the glory days. This season Jose Mourinho looks to be guiding United back towards their past-successes, while Jurgen Klopp has brought a bright attacking style to his Liverpool side. With Mourinho looking to begin a period of domination, he need look no further than Sir Alex Ferguson for inspiration. The Scotsman is one of the greatest managers ever, and Gary Neville has been recounting some of his angriest moments as reported by Sky Sports: “Sir Alex was always different around the big games…People talk about the hairdryer and it never happened that much to be honest with you during a season, but the most consistent place you would see it was Anfield – at half-time or the end of the game. He could not stand losing at Anfield – and if we won there, it didn’t matter how we played – it was like the best thing in the world”.

Anthony Martial is happy at United despite Arsenal interest

Anthony Martial has become a much-loved figure at Manchester United with his pace and trickery bamboozling defenders and fans alike. With five goals and six assists already, it is an incredible achievement when taking into account the fact he has started just four games this season. His exploits have led to reported interest from Arsenal with his curtailed playing time perhaps something that could see a move materialise. However, the Manchester Evening News has reported that Martial remains ‘very content’ at Old Trafford. Martial would be an ideal replacement for Alexis Sanchez when his contract runs out this summer, and if the Frenchman shows any inclination to join the Gunners, Arsene Wenger would likely pull out all the stops to sign him.

Real Madrid give Gareth Bale the green light to join Manchester United

It was a transfer saga that rolled on, and on, and on this summer, and now Eurosport are reporting that El Confidencial have claimed Real Madrid have had enough of Gareth Bale’s injuries and have made first-contact with United over a possible move for the winger. While this may excite many United fans, they should also be wary considering there was a lot of talk regarding Bale and United in the summer, with nothing materialising. If he were to link up with Mourinho’s side though, he would turn a great United attack into a world class one.
