Manchester United set to reignite Gareth Bale interest

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are considering another move to try and land Gareth Bale - and could even relent and agree to include David de Gea in the deal.

The Red Devils have been linked with Bale for much of the season, however the Welshman has gone public with his desire to remain at the Bernabeu.

Despite that new reports today suggest that Manchester United will look to see if a deal is possible once more in the summer - and are ready to cough up £120 million according to the Daily Express.

Selling up?

Real Madrid are not willing to sell the player they paid more than £80 million for in 2013 - unless Manchester United are willing to include De Gea as part of the deal. As things stand the Red Devils don't want to do that and are preparing a new contract offer.

However if De Gea makes it clear that he wants to return to Spain then, given that he has just 18 months left on his contract, then they may include him in their offer for Bale.

The former Atletico Madrid man has so far been reluctant to commit his future to the Red Devils and it is said he's willing to let his heart decide where he will be next season, rather than financial incentives.


The former Tottenham ace has been in good form this season and he's got 10 goals in 16 La Liga appearances this term. However it hasn't all been plain sailing at the Bernabeu. Earlier this month he was booed by his own fans for not passing to Cristiano Ronaldo, however he silenced his critics with a sensational free-kick.
