The Daily Mirror have managed to get the majority of our Manchester United fans looking up shocked here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that the Red Devils are chasing Gareth Bale.
Now as one of our punters notes over a couple of beers and a burger by the bar with our landlord, we think that the club have no chance of landing Bale, despite what Real Madrid fans might think, given Rafa Benitez and Florentino Perez are both huge fans of the winger.
United are desperate for a big signing, and especially after having seen Pedro do so well for Chelsea on his debut and their own attack stall against Newcastle United, the Red Devils are worried.
Manchester United fans. Could a sensational move for Bale come off or do you think this is one of the most ludicrous rumours you have ever heard? Let us know your thoughts below!
