Former Manchester United first-team coach Rene Meulensteen believes signing Gareth Bale would be a risk worth taking for the Red Devils. 

The Welshman has been strongly linked with a move away from Real Madrid this summer after a fall out with Zinedine Zidane with United said to be among clubs interested in his services. 

“You would obviously talk about bringing in a high-profile player in, but is Gareth Bale still at his best?" Meulensteen told talkSPORT

“We all know he’s had his fair share of injuries, so it’s always a risk.

“But, on the other hand, a top-notch Gareth Bale is a really good asset for Manchester United.

“He brings power, he brings pace and he can create and score goals.

“It’s a bit difficult to see where he is at the moment, though.”

The Welshman still has three years left on his mammoth £480,000-a-week contract with the Spanish giants.
