The Welshman has struggled for game time this season but proved his worth with a stunning overhead kick against Liverpool in Kiev, Ukraine, on Saturday night .
The 28 -year-old then secured victory for Los Blancos when his long range ten-strike slipped through Loris Karius's gloves .
Just moments after the full-time whistle, and Real's victory, Bale constructed no secret of his disappointment at starting on the bench and said he would sit down with his agent in the summer to discuss his future .
Probably the most likely destination for Bale. United have been after the Real Madrid forward for some time and have been rebuffed twice in the past. However, Bale's latest commentaries will only excite the United chiefs .
The odds of a transfer to Old Trafford are merely further slashed by Mourinho's desperation for a true winger. United failed in their pursuing of Ivan Perisic last summertime and paid the price this season. They won't want to make the same mistake .

A team whose style would very much suit Bale. For years the Bundesliga club have thrived on using wingers, deploying Arjen Robben, 34, on one flank and Franck Ribery, 35, on the other .
But with both stars nearing the end of their careers now would be the perfect day for some fresh blood .
Exactly the kind of transfer that Juventus should be building. The Serie A giants have fallen agonisingly short of the mark in the Champions League over the past two seasons .

We've seen with the transfers of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe that Paris Saint-Germain aren't shy of splashing the cash .
Everybody knows that the Champions League is the golden award for Les Parisiens, so why not buy someone who's won it three times on the trot .
The least likely club to sign Bale of the six in this list, but they are here for good reason .
After finishing fifth in the league Chelsea will need to make a statement. They also need to keep Eden Hazard sweet who, as it stands, won't be playing Champions League football next season .
