Gareth Bale is Manchester United bound, says ex-star

Gareth Bale could end up at Manchester United this summer, according to ex-Old Trafford player Mickey Thomas. 

David Moyes, last night, denied that the Red Devils had made a bid for the Welsh star.

However, United continue to be linked with last season's PFA Player of the Year and Moyes could step-up interest in the player, amid reports that Real Madrid's bid for the Welshman is fading. 

And, former United and Wales star Mickey Thomas believes Bale could be set for a move to the Theatre of Dreams.

He told BBC Sport: "The whispers around [Manchester United] are that he's Old Trafford-bound.

"That might be more in hope than anything else but it could happen, because by all accounts Real Madrid have not got all the money to put down for Gareth Bale and by all accounts they owe money [to Spurs] for Luka Modric.”

However, recent reports have suggested that United will have to pay as much as £125 million to get their hands on the Welshman as Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would rather not sell to a Premier League rival.

And, with Moyes hinting that United are always in the market for the best players, United cannot be ruled out as contenders for Bale's signature.
