Manchester United are ready to offer teenager Adnan Januzaj to Real Madrid in a bid to land Welsh superstar Gareth Bale, according to the Express.
The report has revealed that the Old Trafford hierarchy have set aside as much as £120 million - a potential world-record fee - in order bring the forward back to English soil in the summer transfer window.
Januzaj on his way?!
However, there has now been a huge twist, with the Red Devils now seemingly prepared to offer Belgian international Adnan Januzaj to the Bernabeu giants. Januzaj, who impressed in his debut season under David Moyes last term, has endured a tricky spell under Louis van Gaal throughout the course of this campaign.
In fact, despite taking the famous No.11 shirt this past summer, the 19-year-old has rarely featured under the new regime, and could now be heading for the Old Trafford exit door sooner rather than later.
And, with the same report suggesting that Real chiefs were previously interested in the talented youngster last summer, it appears that they may now be offered the opportunity to land him.

De Gea future
It appears, then, that the Red Devils would rather part ways with their teenage talent, than offload Spaniard David de Gea. Of late, the United No.1 'keeper has been linked with a move to the Spanish giants, but it now appears that the club are ready to keep the shot-stopper at the club for the long term.
It's certainly not surprising that United want to keep the Spaniard, with the 24-year-old having proven a key man for the club over the past 18-months. In fact, he's arguably been the club's best player under the Van Gaal regime.
There's no doubt about it, however, Manchester United seem desperate to land Bale, but it will certainly come at a huge cost for the club. Despite already possessing the likes of Angel di Maria, Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Co., Red Devils boss Van Gaal appears to be in the market for yet another world-class forward.
