We at the Football Transfer Tavern were shocked to read in The Sun that Manchester United are eyeing up a shock world record breaking bid for Tottenham’s star man Gareth Bale.
United are keen to kick on from Sir Alex Ferguson’s tenure and are willing to wield their power by luring the £85 million rated Bale to Old Trafford.
Real Madrid are the favourites to sign the Welsh winger and are expected to make their move in the coming weeks but the future of star man Cristiano Ronaldo is still uncertain and could have a huge effect on Bale’s future.
United would prefer to bring Ronaldo back to Old Trafford but it was revealed yesterday that the Portuguese winger is in talks to extend his stay in the Spanish capital leaving new Red Devils boss David Moyes with a move for Bale as the next best option.
Either way, United are set to break the world transfer record with a bid for either of the talented wingers.
Will Manchester United really move for Bale this summer? Rate this rumour below.
