Spanish giants open to letting record signing leave.
Real Madrid would be willing to let Gareth Bale join Manchester United, but only if they can have a player in return, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The Spanish giants only signed the Welshman last summer in a world record £85m deal, but could already be open to letting him go as they eye a move for United goalkeeper David de Gea.
Real want a long-term replacement for Iker Casillas, who looks past his best, and de Gea’s fine form during his time at Old Trafford makes him the ideal candidate in that position.
United won’t want to lose such a top player, but with Bale believed to be among Louis van Gaal’s top targets, it may be that this deal could be on the cards.
This would be a blow for Chelsea, who have also been recently linked with Bale.
