Some very exciting rumours doing the rounds today in the Transfer Tavern, enough to make even the most cynical of punter to stop and put down their pints to find out what is going on, the rumours being particularly exciting for fans of Manchester United.
Metro are reporting that Louis van Gaal is prepared to spend the necessary £86 million to try and tempt Gareth Bale away from Real Madrid and bring him back to the Premier League.
Rumours of United trying to sign the Welsh International superstar started earlier on this summer but were somewhat played down after the arrival of new manager Rafa Benitez at the Bernabeu.
However, now, after reports that United are still very much interested in the player, on top of the fact the sale of Di Maria is looking to bring in around £44 million, an offer for the ex-Tottenham man is looking rather likely.
As per usual, our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern had his say on the matter in hand, “If Manchester United signed Gareth Bale they would win the Premier League, i’m sure of it – he has that ability to change a game in a matter of seconds, it would be a fantastic addition!”
