REAL MADRID star Luka Modric has supposedly told Gareth Bale that he should consider joining Manchester United next summer.

Manchester United spent the summer attempting to lure Bale away from Real Madrid.

The Wales international is currently struggling over at the Bernabeu, with fans preferring manager Zinedine Zidane to leave him on the bench and pick Isco or Marco Asensio instead.

Bale has always insisted that he wants to remain at Real Madrid, having helped the club win the Champions League three times in the four years since he arrived from Tottenham.

But Spanish outlet Don Balon claims he has been told by Modric that perhaps a move to Old Trafford is the ticket to reviving his career.
