Man Utd on alert with Real Madrid willing to sell Bale

Manchester United could make a huge move for Gareth Bale after it emerged that Real Madrid could be willing to sell the Welsh ace, the Daily Star has reported.

United have been repeatedly linked with Bale in recent weeks and it is said that Louis van Gaal is a huge admirer of the player.

Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti had previously stated that he and the club would not be particularly interested in parting with the world record signing but fresh reports have suggested that both club and manager have changed their mind.

United are thought to be putting a whopping £300,000 a week contract together for the 25-year-old but it would take a rumoured £90m bid for the Spanish giants to consider letting him go.

Bale is currently injured and replacement Isco has been putting in some incredibly impressive performances – so much so that Italian Ancelotti now considers him worthy of Bale’s first team place.

The winger has only been at Madrid one season following the drawn out move from Tottenham but impressed with his transition last term.

He managed to score Real’s second goal of their record setting 4-1 win over rivals Atletico Madrid that helped the club to seal its tenth European trophy.

And despite an injury plagued first half of the season, Bale managed to net 22 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions.
