The Daily Mail have Manchester United fans looking depressed here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that the Red Devils have been told in no uncertain terms that they have no chance of landing £120 million man Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.
Florentino Perez was holding nothing back as he made it very clear that Bale would be going nowhere, claiming: “I cannot imagine Real Madrid without Bale. We would never listen to any offer, no matter the amount.
“This is a unique player who has already given us a lot and it is crucial for the future of the club.”
As our landlord notes however, Sir Alex Ferguson once claimed he would not sell Real Madrid a virus and we all know what happened after that!
We still think that United could well land Bale but it would cost them a huge amount of cash, not to mention potentially using star man and self dubbed Captain America, David De Gea, as a potential bargaining tool – something we think could well be catastrophic.
Manchester United fans. Would you consider using De Gea as a makeweight player or is that more of a detriment than a positive? Let us know your thoughts below.
