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.
Bale not a player Manchester United are actively pursuing. Were interested in 2013. Situation could change if Real Madrid wanted to sell

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.
