Reputed journalist Duncan Castles has claimed that Manchester United are holding a genuine interest in signing Gareth Bale from European champions Real Madrid. The Red Devils were not able to discuss a transfer move for the Welshman last summer but Castles believes United could return for the attacker, should they receive the green light.
He said: “Manchester United are definitely interested [in Bale]. Mourinho tried to sign him last summer. Bale resisted and didn’t do anything to help or facilitate a move. If Real Madrid say yes to it, which they are likely to, and Bale says yes to it, which is undecided, Manchester United will need to redraw their transfer plans. They didn’t plan to sign an attacking player of his status.”
