Manchester United bid for Bale as part of £250million summer rebuild

Manchester United will launch a summer bid for Gareth Bale.

United see Bale’s remarks as major encouragement to make a mega bid to bring the Welsh star back to the Premier League.

Real Madrid star Bale, who turns 29 this summer, has made it clear he is unhappy and needs to be regularly at this stage of his career.

United boss Jose Mourinho has already got Bale on his summer wish list as they look to do a £250m overhaul of the squad also including moves for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred and Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld.

But Bale is a long standing target and this would be their THIRD serious attempt to sign him having failed to get him in 2013 when he went to Madrid and then two years ago.
