Manchester United are in Macedonia preparing to take on Real Madrid in the European Super Cup Final.

The game gives Jose Mourinho the chance to add the European Super Cup to his and the clubs` portfolio.

However, another scenario could develop when the team-sheets are made public tomorrow evening.

Jose will be eager to see whether Gareth Bale will be named in the Real Madrid side.

If not and with speculation suggesting that Kylian Mbappe could be on his way to the Bernabeu, Jose has given a clear indication of how he rates the Welsh winger, remarking to the media

“If he is not in the club`s plans, that with the arrival of another player would mean he was on his way out, I will be waiting for him on the other side and fight with the other coaches that would want him on their team.

“But if he plays tomorrow, that is the best confirmation that he is still wanted by the team.”

What`s the verdict?

Will Bale start for Madrid in Macedonia or is a move away from the Bernabeu beckoning?
