Here we go again. Manchester United are confident of landing Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale in this transfer window. 

This has been reported by Spanish media outlet El Confidencial, who claim that the Red Devils are convinced they can bring the Welshman to Old Trafford for the mega fee of €120 million. 

Bale, 26, recently helped Real secure their second Champions League title in the past two seasons as they overcame rivals Atletico Madrid once again.

It's safe to say that the ex-Tottenham man enjoyed a prominent campaign in La Liga, scoring 19 goals in 23 outings. 

But is he really set to return to English soil? 

Jose changes 

Well, in all honesty, United fans won't be getting their hopes up at this stage, but it appears that there's a chance that the club will make their move over the coming months. 

Despite the fact that the Red Devils will be without Champions League football for the 2016/17 campaign, they remain a tantalising prospect for the elite players. 

That's because they have Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho at their disposal. The new United boss may well have been sacked as manager of Chelsea back in December, but he's still recognised as one of the leading managers in world football. 

And it appears that he's intent on changing the dynamic of the side in the immediate future. It has been well documented that talented defender Eric Bailly is closing in on a move to the club - he has reportedly passed a medical - while it has also been suggested that United are pursuing Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic. 

The robust striker may well be approaching the latter stages of his career, but it he would still represent a significant coup for Mourinho and co. 

The addition of Bale would, of course, prove a remarkable one for the club, but they will be well aware that there's a long way to go in this saga. 

United, who have been linked with the Welshman over the past couple of years, clearly aren't giving up on bringing him to Manchester, but they can't wait forever. 

If Bale rejects them this summer then it may be the right time for the club to move on. United could be a completely different animal under Mourinho, who is just getting started.
