Gareth Bale

Manchester United not actively pursuing Real Madrid winger

Bale not in plans

Contrary to recent rumours, Manchester United are not actively pursuing Gareth Bale.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the Real Madrid winger for a few years but aren’t expected to bid for him this summers.

Jose Mourinho, who managed Real Madrid until 2013, has previously stated that that United are still after a central player and a wide player this summer.

Bale could obviously fit the role of the latter, but Sky’s Kaveh Solhekol has put the rumours to bed – kind of.


Perisic likely

While Bale isn’t expected to be making a move to Old Trafford anytime soon, Inter Milan (another of Mourinho’s former clubs) winger Ivan Perisic could be.

The Serie A club would find it hard to turn down a massive offer for the player.
