United Launch £60m Gareth Bale Bid As Moyes Targets Three Big-Name Signings

By on July 18, 2013

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Man Utd have set their sights on Gareth Bale.

Manchester United have launched a record £60m move for Tottenham star Gareth Bale as new boss David Moyes aims to give the club a major boost with a big-money spending spree, according to the Mirror.

Moyes is mindful that the fans need reassurance that the club is heading in the right direction following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, while the Wayne Rooney saga has also cast a shadow over Old Trafford in recent days, and it seems for former Everton boss is ready to give everybody a boost by splashing the cash.

The Mirror claim his first priority is to try and land last years PFA Football of the Year, Gareth Bale, and the Welshman is thought to be the reason chief executive Ed Woodward flew back early from the clubs pre-season tour of Australia.

While Spurs have so far resisted any attempts to lure Bale away from White Hart Lane, the report claims Moyes is going to go all-out to try and sign the 23-year-old and is also hoping to bring in Cesc Fabregas as well as one other big name signing to soften the blow of Wayne Rooney’s expected move to Chelsea.

United’s neighbours Manchester City have been busy in the transfer market this summer and the return of Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge, as well as the potential arrival of Rooney, is sure to make Chelsea serious title-challengers next season, so United know they need to make a statement to keep them ahead of the chasing pack.

Signing Bale would certainly do that but it’s not going to be easy with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy sure to drive a hard bargain for the north Londoners prized asset and they’ll do everything they can to hang on to the Welsh winger this summer.

    Please correct me if I am wrong. 1 month ago Real Madrid were prepared to break the bank with a offer for Bale. A bid of 85 million was being put touted.this was rejected outright by Spurs. Now how does 60 million become a more attractive offer.It is sad to read such nonsense at this time of the transfer market when when journalist take advantage of the supporters thirst for information about their teams transfer activity.Some sites suck stories from their rear ends, and rehash other old stories .The news now is all Rumours,conjecture and old stories. If you want to know who is not going to who then this is the site for you.

      If you believe Madrid could raise £85m then you are on another planet. The reason they havent bid is because they dont have the money, they’d have to include players to make it up. Plus like you say they were ‘touted’ to have made a bid…nothing was official.

      So in theory this story could be correct, you sound like somebody who believes everything he reads.

    Why would big name signings want to play for small name manager? Moyes will never play big name football, he isn’t capable. This year it will be City or Cheskie.

      In that case no one will join you either as you have a small time manager with a small time club!

        And you have an attitude problem unless you are eight years old. Grow up.

    What’s wrong with Moyes, he ought to have sign players by now, he keep mentioning names but none has join, from Ronaldo to Modric, Lewadonsky, Garay, Fellaini, Baines, Fabregas, Strootman, Thiago, and now Bale??? Moyes is a joker not a manager

    The big name player would want to play for Manchester United’s proud brand, tradition and history. Its not for Moyes. The player would feel obliged to be part of past and present history and put on the red jersey and enter Old Trafford with pride!

    I personally believe that Gareth Bale will ask for a transfer from Spurs to Man Utd, in the next couple of weeks. These are my own thoughts something i am entitled to, while others may agree and disagree. They are also entitled to their own opinion on the rumour. If Rooney is sold, I believe, Man Utd of serious about Bale will sign him for £60m cash or plus Nani.

    stop kidding yourselves, its only Fellaini and Baines this year!
    World class my ar##, it’s 3 or 4th in the prem and out of the champions league by the group stages
    we need quality and unfortunately these players are not?
    Bale and Fabregas are what we need to compete against the best!

    Bale’s concetration is Madrid,so let him go cause he is not made for us! So that Moyes will find a refuge to lure CR7 back to OT.
