Paul Scholes would love to see Gareth Bale in a Manchester United shirt next season but feels a potential transfer is unrealistic.

Bale ended a frustrating season at Real Madrid on a high with the match-winning goals in Saturday's 3-1 Champions League final victory over Liverpool.

The Wales forward, whose double after he came on as a substitute included an audacious overhead kick, hinted after the game he may be willing to leave Madrid as he needs to be starting games regularly.

United great Scholes believes every fan at Old Trafford would be excited by the prospect of Bale's arrival, although he concedes a deal is unlikely.

"Can I see it happening? No, not really," Scholes said.

"The only reason he'd want to leave Real Madrid would be if they wanted him to go.

"Could he come to Man United then? I hope so. Every United fan would want him: great ability, great talent, scores great goals.
