Jose Mourinho has reportedly clashed with the Manchester United board over the potential move of Gareth Bale to Old Trafford, according to Diario Gol. 

It is understood that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has grown frustrated by Bale’s injury record and has offered him to the Red Devils in bid to make space for rising star Marco Asensio.  

But reports now suggest that Mourinho does not want the 28-year-old as he deems him injury prone, despite the Manchester United board being keen on bringing in the Welshman. 

Bale, who is contracted to Real Madrid until 2022, is believed to have expressed desire to stay and fight for his place at Real Madrid, but reports in Diario Gol suggested earlier that he has told Madrid that he would be interested in playing under Mourinho should they not need him.

Despite having scored 70 goals in 159 appearances since moving to Madrid from London in 2013, Bale has struggled to get more playing time under Zinedine Zidane after coming back from an ankle injury in February.

Should Mourinho succeed in blocking this move, Perez could look to use Bale in a player-plus-cash exchange for Tottenham Hotspurs’ Harry Kane.

Manchester United are already in the midst of an injury crisis with no less than eight players sidelined due to injuries as they prepare to face title-rivals Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow.
