United To Make Gareth Bale Bid If Talks With Cristiano Ronaldo Next Week Fall Flat
Manchester United will make a move for Tottenham ace Gareth Bale if they fail to lure Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports.
With the summer transfer window set to open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest Arsenal transfer rumours. Today, Man Utd could move for Gareth Bale.
Manchester United will make a move for Tottenham ace Gareth Bale if they fail to lure Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid this summer, according to the Daily Star.
David Moyes officially takes charge at Old Trafford on Monday and the report claims his first job is to press ahead with trying to land Ronaldo and talks are due to take place at some point next week to see whether there’s a chance the Portuguese attacker could make a sensational return to England.
Carlo Ancelotti replaced Jose Mourinho at Madrid last week and it’s understood he has no intention of letting the 28-year-old leave this summer, but the Star suggest United are preparing a £60m bid and promise to pay Ronaldo £250,000-a-week in wages, with the package backed by sponsors Chevrolet and Nike.
However, should United fail to make a breakthrough following talks next week, the newspaper claims the champions will then turn their attention to Bale and are prepared to test Tottenham’s resolve with a sizable offer.
Spurs are desperate to keep hold of the Welshman but with the player showing little sign of signing a new deal at White Hart Lane, the north Londoners may find it difficult to turn down a fee in the region of £80m for the 23-year-old should United come in with such an offer.
I personally don’t think either Ronaldo or Bale will be moving on this summer and I feel they will remain with Madrid and Spurs for one more year, but United are a powerful club with vast resources so you just never know, they may be able to land one of the two superstars this summer. Money talks after all.
