Scholes: Bale would be perfect for Manchester United and can turn Louis van Gaal's team into tit



Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale would be a perfect fit for Louis van Gaal's side and could make Manchester United contest for the Premier League title next season, says Paul Scholes.

In recent months the former Tottenham winger has been linked with a move away from Los Blancos following immense criticism from the club's fans.

However, Red Devils legend Scholes is convinced the Wales international Bale will be loved at Old Trafford and his impact at United will be vital.

'My feeling is that he would be perfect for Manchester United,' the former England midfielder wrote in his column for the Independent.

'Of course, as a fan of my former club I would like to see him there but, looking at it objectively, I always felt that Bale was a natural fit for United as he developed at Tottenham from a left-back into one of the best attacking footballers in the country.

'He would be loved at Old Trafford. In return I believe he could turn Louis van Gaal's team into serious title contenders next season.

'In my years at United I witnessed some signings who, over their careers, transformed the fortunes of the team. From Eric Cantona when I was an apprentice, to Dwight Yorke, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Wayne Rooney.

'These were great footballers who became great United players. Bale has the potential to make as much of an impact as any of them.'
