Manchester United's attempts to bring Gareth Bale to the club show no sign of slowing down with the Sunday Times journalist James Ducker claiming they are ready to offer to Real Madrid £90million.

That would be sufficient to break the world record, which was set when the same player moved from Tottenham Hotspur to the Bernabeu for £86m in 2013.

Despite the fact that Bale has always enjoyed playing for Real Madrid, Manchester United have been there to offer him a route back to the Premier League.

Indeed, they were rumoured to have launched two bids worth £100million last summer, which Real Madrid rejected, but there is hope from within Old Trafford that the recent managerial change will give them the chance they have longed for.

Bale was left disappointed by Florentino Perez's decision to sack Rafa Benitez and even sent the president text messages to try and stop the president from sacking him.

Good start

But Zinedine Zidane has already said that Bale remains well within his plans, which were in full view against Deportivo on Saturday night.

The Welshman bagged a hat-trick in a 5-0 win and was taken off late in the second half to a standing ovation from the Bernabeu crowd. It would have given Bale hope that he can continue his fine form under the stewardship of the Frenchman.

Ground work

There is a feeling that Bale is determined to make his time at Real Madrid a success and he is definitely in the best place if he has ambitions to win the Ballon d'Or in the future.

However, if he ever wants to leave Manchester United would be happy to take him in and, again, Old Trafford appears to be the best place suited for him if he is to return to England.

Ed Woodward has put in the groundwork over the course of two years to make sure United are leading the chase if Bale ever decides to leave. For now though, it appears that his efforts will go unrewarded.
