Here are some of the biggest Manchester United transfer stories today...

€150m set for Bale
Sticking with Real Madrid, and Spanish daily AS have reported that Manchester United have set aside as much as €150 million in order to land Welsh wizard Gareth Bale.
It appears that the Red Devils are determined to bring the former Tottenham man back to England's elite division, but it remains to be seen as to whether Real would be willing to accept a possible world record offer.

The Mirror, meanwhile, have reported that Manchester United are confident of securing a deal for Southampton full-back Nathaniel Clyne next summer.
