Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke believes the club should sign Real Madrid star Gareth Bale this summer.

As reported by The Sun, Yorke has insisted that the Welshman is one of the world's best players and would excel at Old Trafford under the guidance of Louis van Gaal. 

The ex-United man believes Bale would be far more appreciated in Manchester, but it's far from certain as to whether the club are going to step up their interest in the versatile forward in the near future. 

Unsurprisingly, the Red Devils have been heavily linked with the ex-Spurs man, but it's certainly not going to be easy for them to secure his signature. 

“I would get Gareth Bale in, that’s what United need . . . a player who will just take the ball and run.

“He’s British, he’s exciting, he’s quick, fast, he goes past people and that will lift everyone going forward. That would excite everybody

“And he will be loved here, he will be far more appreciated because the people here know what to expect. The Spanish are hard people, they are used to the likes of Romario and Ronaldo — the dribblers with the silky skills.

“In all fairness Bale is not silky — he is a powerhouse with great pace and that’s best for England.

“When he is in full flow he is one of the best in the world.

“That’s why Madrid paid all the money for him. If I was signing one player for United this summer, it would be him.”

United want Sergio Ramos 

Manchester United have an interest in Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, according to Sky Sports.

The report claims that the Red Devils want to bring the World Cup winner to Old Trafford this summer, with it being suggested that David de Gea could leave in the opposite direction. 

In fact, the report from Sky Sports goes on to reveal United that the club also have an interest in Bayern star Bastian Schweinsteiger, who previously worked under Louis van Gaal. 

Galatsaray don't want RVP 

Turkish outfit Galatsaray have pulled out of the running to sign Manchester United forward Robin van Persie this summer. 

As reported by the Mirror, the Turkish outfit have been put off by the player's £10 million-a-year wages. Van Persie, of course, endured a tricky campaign at the Theatre of Dreams last season, but he may yet stay on and fight for his place in Manchester. 

There's no doubt about it, it looks set to be an interesting summer for the Dutchman, who turns 32 in August.
